These Incense Burners Are Cool Girl–Approved

Gabrielle Savoie

When fall rolls around, there are few things we love more than lighting up a scented candle and taking the night off to read a book or take a bath. Although the habit is entirely relaxing, it's not necessarily economical. While going through an endless supply of designer candles each winter can burn a hole in your wallet, there is another alternative we enjoy just as much: incense.

Hear us out: If the thought of incense reminds you of a streetside psychic parlor or a trippy crystal shop, you're not alone. But a chic crop of cool incense burners on the market is indicating that the practice may be more widespread than we thought. The Japanese even have their own word for the art of appreciating incense: kōdō. And while some of these incense holders are not exactly on the cheap side themselves, the incense sticks, coils, and cones are much more affordable than a designer candle (and easier than sage smudging your house). So pick up one of these cool incense burners a new habit by the same token. These holders are cool girl–approved.
