A material burned in order to produce a scent, possibly in connection with a ritual. Klingons have been depicted burning something resembling incense on Star Trek on several occasions, including DS9 "Sons of Mogh" and VOY "Nothing Human"

I've long thought that it would be great if the gloss of *noSvagh* as deodorant were only half the story; that it had a more general meaning that could include incense. Besides, the first thing I think of when I see *deodorant* is deodorant used for personal hygiene which, to my mind, is about as Klingon as tribble stew.
How would you say "Incense and peppermints, the color of time" in Klingon?
A word for mint is pending.
