Yes, a housewarming custom, or for New Year's.

I burn incense for my meditations, which are linked to spiritual reasons. I am currently trying out this Japanese brand incence called Morning Star. If you find it near you, buy it, it's just so bomb.

I've always burned incense, primarily white sage, and nag champa -- they're my go to incense. Some of my earliest memories are actually attached to those smells, now that I think about it.

Sometime I just light matches and let them burn because I like the smell. Honestly, if it isn't wood burning...I can leave it. campfire smell > incense. I'd rather just boil or melt materials to release the scent. Boiling fir needles makes my house smell good. Burning/heating pine resin is nice sometimes too.
I'm agnostic, but some part of me wants to have an altar with candles and things...but fake fragrances just make me sneeze.
As for meditation, anything strong or out of the ordinary is something i'd end up hyper-focusing on and never get to a point where I could truly calm my mind....so I avoid it.

I only light incense if I go to temples to pray, when someone has passed away or any other Chinese traditions.

I burn patchouli and sandalwood. I started for spiritual reasons but I found I really liked the smell and have been burning the same kind for 15 years now.

Daily。(^ ^)v
My family uses incense to pray so we use the ones made for such things。
No special fragrance other than just incense smoke。
Spiritual family with traditions。(^w^)

I don't like the smell of burning objects with the exception of rubber and electric burn (I'm weird like that). Either way, I don't mind it if it's a pleasant smell, but I don't do it personally.
