FOUNDER

My name is Dewan, and I am thrilled that you're here. My journey with incense began in my childhood, where my grandmother introduced me incense and I was immediately captivated by the beauty of the plumes of smoke carrying it's aroma.

As the world stood still during the lockdown, my passion for the luxurious charm of incense was reignited. However, I was disappointed to not find the perfect scent that reminded me of my grandmother's tuberose incense. That's when I decided to craft it myself, perfecting the art of creating incense without any lingering unpleasant odors.

I named my incense Alpana, inspired by the Bengali folk art made with rice paste. The tradition of Alpana is passed down, and I feel privileged to continue my grandmother's legacy of incense as home fragrance through my creation. My incense is a reflection of my passion, and I am honored to share it with you.

If you have made it this far, I would love to hear from you. Drop me a line at info@alpana.la to say hello!
