Finest Quality Athonite Style Church Incense from Hermitage of the Holy Cross    
 

Fragrances available:

Cassia
A rich mixture of cinnamon and cloves, this pleasing incense lingers in the air long after being used. “All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.” Psalm 44:8


Evergreen & Embers
A deep and rich mixture of fir, spruce, balsam, cedarwood and moss with touches of cinnamon, clove and eucalyptus create a wonderful and complex aroma of evergreen. An especially delightful fragrance during the Nativity season, but wonderful for any time of the year.
     
Catacombs
An ancient frankincense and myrrh combination, this fragrance also includes cedar wood, sweetened with a touch of rose, vanilla and amber musk.

Flowers of Cyprus
From the rolling meadows of Cyprus comes a magnificent floral blend of rose, orange blossom, geranium, jasmine, and carnation combined with citrus fruit oils tempered with woody and mossy base notes.
    
Hyssop
Thyme, lavender and eucalyptus are warmed with moss, amber and vanilla to capture the fragrance of this herb which was used for liturgical purposes during biblical times.“Thou shalt sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be made clean;” Psalm 50:7
    
Lindisfarne
A woodsy blend of sandalwood and cedar sweetened with vanilla and musk. This incense is dedicated to the ancient Celtic monastic center known as “Holy Island”.

Blachernae Rose
This subtly complex bouquet combines light citrus with blends of jasmine, geranium and hyacinth, rounded with a hint of wild berries and warm moss notes to create a sweet and fresh rose scent to honor the Theotokos.

Rose
Our original rose and still our most popular rose fragrance! A deep and rich rose aroma mixed with fresh geranium and warm musk undertones.     

Svir
A sweet and spicy wild flower fragrance from the deserts of east Africa, dedicated to St Alexander of Svir. A very popular incense at the Hermitage.

Constantinople
An elegant fragrance from the queen of Byzantine cities composed of powdery rose incense blended with sandalwood, sweet myrrh and soft spice.

Ethiopian Frankincense
“…and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.” - Matthew 2:11
 
Pure and natural frankincense imported from Ethiopia with hints of lemon and evergreen. The base for all of our fine varieties.

Somalian Frankincense
A rich golden brown tree resin imported from Somalia that has a very powerful and vivid earthy aroma. For centuries, this ancient natural resin was used as incense for the Divine Services throughout the Byzantine Empire and all of Christendom.

Burning Bush
A beautiful spicy fragrance with soft floral blends, a touch of cinnamon and clove and sweetened with honey. If you like Cassia or Evergreen  & Embers, you are sure to love Burning Bush incense. The original burning bush that Moses saw still exists on Mt Sinai and is often referred to as a symbol for the Mother of God.

English Rose
A strong and spicy rose scent, with hints of geranium, cloves, cardamom and berries, rounded out with woody base notes.
 
Myrrh
A woodland resin blend of amber, cedar, myrrh and frankincense with a soft spicy floral rose accord. One of our most popular fragrances.
 
“Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense.” -Song of Solomon 4:6
 
Old Church
We bottled up the aroma of an ancient Byzantine basilica with wooden rafters overhead and the smoke of frankincense lingering in the air. Old Church incense is a complex and woody blend of labdanum, frankincense, cedar & fir needle and vetiver, with a touch of spices.
 
Amber
A sweet & woody vanilla aroma complemented with golden citrus, musk and sandalwood accords. This incense is a favorite of the Hermitage brotherhood.
 
Iveron
Fresh and bright top notes of white blossoms, rose and lily softened with warm musk make this a fitting incense to honor the Theotokos.
 
Kursk
Fresh citrus and sweet berries join together with ginger, neroli, moss, cedar and olibanum to create this graceful fragrance dedicated to the Kursk icon of the Theotokos.

Byzantium
As Byzantium bridged the East and West, so this fragrance brings together our floral and spicy fragrances, capturing the best of both worlds — a sweet and warm garden fragrance with subtle hints of geranium, lily and wild berry, rounded out by neroli, cinnamon, clove, warm vanilla and galbanum.
