Your edit to Bear Minimum

It doesn't matter and "enraged" is perfectly fine too, but just FYI "incensed" is a real word, and a real synonym for "enraged".

"Incense" the noun is called that not because it's scented, but because it's burned, and the verb and adjective forms reflect this usage:

From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

  Incense \In*cense"\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Incensed}; p. pr. &
     vb. n. {Incensing}.] [L. incensus, p. p. of incendere; pref.
     in- in + root of candere to glow. See {Candle}.]
     [1913 Webster]
     1. To set on fire; to inflame; to kindle; to burn. [Obs.]
        [1913 Webster]
              Twelve Trojan princes wait on thee, and labor to
              Thy glorious heap of funeral.         --Chapman.
        [1913 Webster]
     2. To inflame with anger; to enrage; to endkindle; to fire;
        to incite; to provoke; to heat; to madden.
        [1913 Webster]
              The people are incensed him.          --Shak.
     Syn: To enrage; exasperate; provoke; anger; irritate; heat;
          fire; instigate.
          [1913 Webster]

  Incensed \In*censed"\, a.
     1. Angered; enraged.
        [1913 Webster]
     2. (Her.) Represented as enraged, as any wild creature
        depicted with fire issuing from mouth and eyes.
        [1913 Webster]

But, like I said, "enraged" is a perfectly good substitute, and if it's less confusing to people then it makes sense to go with that. Merely a word-usage FYI. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 14:51, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
