I do not adore the brass base, but I don't hate it either, and the rest of the Amphora Incense Holder by L'Objet is exactly the incense burner I've been looking for — except that I wasn't really looking for an incense holder until I saw this one, on account of I already have one, and if I was looking for an incense holder, I would hopefully be looking for one that cost way less than $150. ("From the time our earliest ancestors tossed dried leaves and herbs onto their communal fires, the blending of incense became a sacred and healing art. Earthy yet mysterious, incense is still treasured today for its ability to enliven our senses, cleanse impurities, and elevate our mood. The Parfums de Voyage collection features Japanese incense, which delivers the purest fragrance possible. Elevate the experience further by aerating and lifting the fragrance through a timeless porcelain amphora.") Available at Twisted Lily.
