NAGWhen you walk into the wonderful retail outlet of the Atlantic Spice Company in Truro, MA you are overwhelmed with the combined scent of all the great herbs, spices, teas and other great products they offer. However, just inside the door to the right you are greeted with the unmistakable scent of Nag Champa, the classic Indian incense from Shrinivas Sugandhalaya of Bangalore.

I love incense and I love the smell of Nag Champa, which is prevalent even when not lighted. Of course on my recent vacation to Cape Cod, I made the pilgrimage to Atlantic Spice Company and loaded up all sorts of things, including a couple of boxes of Nag Champa.

About Nag Champa Indian Incense: “This is one of the most recognized logos in Indian incense! It’s the logo of the Shrinivas Sugandhalaya Company, makers of the world famous Nag Champa in the blue box. Nag Champa is loved the world over for its sweet floral scent that lingers long after the incense is finished burning. But Nag Champa is only one of the many wonderful incenses produced by this company. Try any or all of the Shrinivas line. You will not only be surprised with the quality, but you’ll fall in love with incense from India all over again.”

A side benefit of traveling home from vacation with Nag Champa in my luggage is everything that was with it now smell like it – and that is not a bad thing.

Meanwhile, the Atlantic Spice Company is just awesome – I also purchased some hard to find spices and some great loose teas (along with a bunch of other things I didn’t know I needed until I saw it in their showroom).
