It's not bad. It's just not particularly good. I live there, I do various things in this apartment. Some of them do not involve flowers and incense - in fact, the vast majority of them don't. And by "vast majority" I mean "all".
I don't particularly like incense. I mean, it's okay, but it smells . . . incensey. In fact there's a lot of smells I don't particularly like. "Anything artificial" is one of them. What I really do like, and would love to have, is a low-key natural wood smell - like what you get when you buy furniture from Ikea, for example. I like that smell. It's clean. It's natural. It's pleasant.
My current thought - buy bag of wood chips from somewhere, leave a pile of woodchips out on a plate, replace wood chips occasionally. This might work. It might not. Since my experience has been that no matter how obscure the question, *someone* that reads this is probably an expert (often my mom), I decided to ask you.
Good idea? Bad idea? Good-idea-but-here's-a-better-idea?
The best response will win a subatomic particle of my choice.
(Where the hell do you get a bag of woodchips?)
