Cardboard package with a cuboid shape. All sides bear the name of the fragrance and the brand (set out in a small oval with a red background).

The product poses a chemical risk because the incense sticks release aromatic hydrocarbons such as benzene, toluene, xylene and styrene during and after combustion and the estimated emissions exceed the recommended safe concentration for indoor air. Benzene is carcinogenic and mutagenic. In addition, these aromatic hydrocarbons are toxic when inhaled or ingested and irritants to the eyes and skin. As the product is intended for use in closed environments, the release of benzene and toluene is considered harmful to health.
