Dhoop sticks are solid sticks of incense, without the central bamboo / wooden core, so they provide a purer fragrance than normal incense sticks.
These Panchavati Dhoop sticks sticks are made by the Bharat Industrial Corporation (BIC) of Bangalore (the incense capital of India) using - to quote what it says on the box - "famous herbs, resinoids, sandalwood, and other best-quality Indian perfumes". That doesn't really tell you what they smell like, so I'd describe their fragrance as a very potent musky lotus, with overtones of red sandalwood.
Each box contains 10 little 2 inch (5cm) sticks, each of which burns for around 20 minutes. And the box is cleverly designed to incorporate a holder - as you can see in the photo - so you can carry it with you and use it anywhere!
A pack contains 12 boxes - so that's 120 dhoop sticks - and represents excellent value for money.
