Apotheker Hermann Zwetz

Räuchermittelherstellung GmbH

Our company proudly looks back on its long tradition of craftsmanship spanning 150 eventful years.

In 1865, chemist Hermann Zwetz, the company's founder, painstakingly hand-crafted the first incense sticks for therapeutic purposes.

As is customary in chemistries, special emphasis was placed on selecting natural ingredients.

He composed a thick book of all his recipes, which we often refer to still today.

Erich Koch (†), a merchant from Dresden, acquired the company in 1953 and relocated the head office to Mohorn-Grund.  

The brand name


is born.

Our family-owned company already in its 3rd generation of management greatly values preserving the tradition and continues to take a creative approach to developing new fragrances.

Thanks to our wealth of experience and a nose for the right ingredients, we have gradually expanded our range of fragrances to approximately 35.

In addition to traditional “festive fragrances” like frankincense, spruce and roast apple, we also offer floral fragrances for spring, fruity scents for summer and exotic aromas for fall not to mention scents for repelling pesky insects and mosquitoes.

KNOX incense sticks …

… carefully selected raw materials

of the very best quality are freshly ground

and processed directly.

A gentle drying process ensures that the natural raw materials and ingredients

are preserved and give

the incense sticks

their unmistakable aroma

and traditional fragrance.

For many people, the tradition and popularity of our incense sticks have long been a part of their way of life. Every year, nearly 70 tonnes of

KNOX incense sticks leave our establishment and are sent to destinations around the world.

Our product range covers a diverse assortment of incense and festive products from smoking figures, smoking houses, incense sticks, light ensembles, advent calendars and other gift articles, which we are constantly expanding.
