Incense Man Newsletter, Friday 14 December 2018

What's back in stock, some last-minute gift suggestions, a new special offer, our Top Five bestsellers... and your free bonus giveaway!

Hi there...

Well, here we are just halfway through December, and I have to say I'm already getting a little bit bored with the whole commercial side of Christmas! Is it just me, or did the full-on, spend spend spend, plaster your house with flashing lights, and play nothing but Christmas songs on the radio start particularly early this year? (Don't get me wrong, I'm as big a fan of the Yuletide season as the next man... and I suppose that given the current state of the world we could all do with a bit of escapism.)

Having said that, I'm probably as guilty as anybody... I've actually finished my Christmas shopping already, so (for once) I won't be dashing around town like a maniac on Christmas Eve this year! However, I certainly haven't got out my Phil Spector Christmas Album or Now That's What I Call Christmas CDs just yet - that won't happen until we close our office for the holidays...

(And on that subject, our office will be closed from lunchtime on Friday 21 December until Wednesday 2 January - although of course our website will stay open to take orders, we just won't be here to pack and post them over the Christmas and New Year period - and our next newsletter won't be published until Friday 11 January...)

OK, that's enough of that, now let's take our regular look at which well-known names we've lost in the fortnight since our last newsletter.  So, we've had to say farewell to former US President George H W Bush (94),  British actor Peter Armitage (78),   co-founder of the British punk-rock band Buzzcocks, Pete Shelley (63),  and American musician (in Captain Beefheart's Magic Band) The Mascara Snake, aka Victor Hayden (70).  RIP guys...

Now, I think we need something to make us giggle after all that bad news... so how about a very clever bit of political satire (even though I wouldn't usually dream of doing politics here) courtesy of Andy Serkis? This is his leaked footage from inside Number 10 Downing Street... which I hope you'll find amusing, regardless of your particular political persuasion, or lack thereof!

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 or so... with (as always) my apologies for any errors or omissions...

OK, that takes us a little more than halfway up to the date of our next scheduled newsletter in four 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, we've now had (probably) the last of our deliveries before Christmas, so BACK IN STOCK this fortnight we now have Om Nagchampa incense sticks, at last.  We've also had fresh deliveries of Nitiraj Original natural masala incense sticks, Padmini Spiritual Guide incense sticks, Padmini Brindavan Sandal incense sticks, HEM White Sage incense sticks, Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa beauty soap in 75g bars, and Satya Nag Champa Orange soap.  We've also taken delivery of some slightly different incense smoke-boxes, which are a 12 inch (30cm) version rather than the previous 10 inch (25cm) size, and with a decorative brass inlay of three elephants...

Now, if you're looking for any suggestions for a last-minute Christmas stocking filler, you might like to consider one of our gift sets / variety packs.  (But bear in mind that it would probably be sensible to choose Royal Mail 24 (First Class) delivery to be sure of receiving any order before Christmas, as the post is obviously very busy at this time of year, and can be a wee bit slow...)

Finally, as always, we have a new special offer for you, which will last either until our next newsletter in 4 week's time, OR until stocks run out (whichever is soonest!) So, if you order a 100g bottle of Mysore Sandal talc, we'll send you an additional 50g bottle FREE! So you get 150g for the price of 100g... equivalent to 33% off. WOW!

4) Bharath Darshan incense sticks - blasting their way back into the Top Five since coming back in to stock just over two weeks ago...

5) HEM Champa masala incense sticks - down two places in the last fortnight - but still a remarkably good incense!
