Incense Man Newsletter, Friday 21 June 2019

What's new, what's back (and fresh) in stock, a new special offer, our Top Five bestsellers... and your free bonus giveaway!

Hi there...

Well, I think I've had more work to do on the Incense Man website since we agreed to sell the business than at almost any time over the last 17 years or so of running it!  It must be because I'm too considerate - reorganising, tidying and re-writing it so that the new owners don't have too much donkey-work to do on Day One... (although we still don't quite know yet exactly when that day will be!)

Anyway, more about the business goings-on later in this newsletter. For now, let me just wish you a Happy Midsummer Solstice! I have to admit that for the first time in umpteen years I didn't get up at silly-o'clock this morning to watch the sun rise... but, hey, I was there in spirit...

Still on a personal note, but a very sad one, I'm sorry to report that Chris's 88 year old Mum, Gwen, passed away (at home, peacefully, in her sleep) on Wednesday evening... so please bear with us if we seem a little distracted over the next few days and weeks...

OK, in a similar but less personal vein, let's take our usual fortnightly look at those well-known names who've left us since the last edition of this newsletter.  Well, in the last two weeks we've had to bid farewell to a few...  British footballer and manager Justin Edinburgh (49),  American actress Sylvia Miles (94),  Irish author - the mother of Thin Lizzy's late front-man - Philomena Lynott (88),  Britain's oldest person Grace Jones (112),  Italian film director Franco Zeffirelli (96),  and American fashion icon Gloria Vanderbilt (95).  May they all rest in peace...

Now, to cheer us up after all that bad news, let's celebrate the lives of Phil Lynott and his Mum with a blast of one of my favourite Thin Lizzy tracks - here's a live version of "The Boys Are Back In Town", from way back in 1976... 

Right, let's get back to business. Here are the brief edited highlights of some of the more noteworthy dates from around the world during the next two weeks... with (as always) my apologies for any errors or omissions...

OK, that takes us up to the date of our next scheduled newsletter in two weeks time... so now here's your update on what's been happening on the Incense Man website since the last newsletter, a fortnight ago...

Well, it's been another very busy couple of weeks here... but mainly in terms of "end-of-term" admin, and tidying up our website ready for the new owners! Once I actually started looking into it, there was lot of redundant, out-of-date and no-longer-obtainable stuff on there, so you should now notice that things are a bit less cluttered...

On the deliveries front it's also been quite "brisk"... so you'll now find one NEW-ish incense (actually a new version of an existing incense) on the website... that's Padmini Lyrics masala incense sticks.

Then BACK (or fresh) IN STOCK we have Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa incense sticks,  Ancient Wisdom's Nag Champa room fragrance sprays,  Satya Natural masala incense sticks,  Vijayshree's Golden Nag Chandan (sandalwood) incense sticks,  Padmini Brindavan (sandal) incense sticks,  Bharath Darshan incense sticks,  HEM Night Queen incense sticks,  and mango-wood mini-smokeboxes for incense cones.

Plus as always we have a NEW SPECIAL OFFER for you this fortnight... so until the date of our next newsletter, you can save 20% on Sai Deva spiritual incense cones. They come in boxes of 24 cones, with 4 each of 6 traditional incense fragrances... and a saving of 40p per box! So order yours while stocks last...

1) Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa incense sticks - always our Number One bestseller... the hippies' favourite from the 1960s...

4) Stamford Loban masala incense sticks - a surprise new entry to the Top Five this fortnight,,, but I suppose it shouldn't be too much of a shock, as they are remarkably good incense sticks!
