Well done with posting the images and excellent shrines!
If its any consolation - I don't generally use incense either!

I'm not allowed incense either, it causes my wife to choke. It's not a big deal though, I've got plenty to work on without the need for incense!

I use incense and I favour Nag Champa and Nitraj, mainly. My partner loves them, and finds them soothing - comforting even.
However, I also have granular incense which is burned on a charcoal disc, and that can be pretty pungent, I must admit. I love it, but he finds it a bit overpowering, so I'll use that if he's not around....

I'm hoping that on occasion I get to use incense, but mostly because I just like it! Probably on those days that he is going to be out of the house for a long period of time...that way I have time to air out the house before he comes home!
