They also burn longer than cones. Another thing is that it is easier to light and burn incense sticks.

Incense cones, on the other hand, offer a great burning experience. They burn faster than incense sticks. This is because a great part is burnt at once, unlike incense sticks that just a small portion burns. Because of this, the scents released are stronger but the fragrance does not last long. It is also easier to clean up the ash produced by an incense cone. It is advisable to burn incense cones on a heat resistant surface.
