Incense Burning in Different Traditions?

I like to burn various incense because I love the smell and feel that it creates a positive atmosphere, but I wonder how it is used in different traditions and why.

I've read somewhere that smoke cleanses the room of spirits and somewhere else that you can offer incense to spirits or gods.

Which traditions/religions do use incense and why?

Why and how are you using incense and does it relate to a specific tradition?
