What's the best-smelling / flavor of incense, and where do you buy it from?

For those who have prayer corners, or are familiar with Church supplies,

What's the best smelling incense? What flavors / smells do you prefer? And why? What supplier do you use?

Frankincense pellets imbued with myrrh is the absolute best combination (although florals blend well too, for some arcane reason).

This is a 12-fragrance sampler that is definitely worth the investment, although I don't know if postage is affordable all the way to the US.

Absolutely genuine and in various quantities here.

I'm weird, and I want it to mean something. 🤷‍♀️

Here is a good variety of incense. The store owner is very responsive to questions about the products:
