Jinkoh Juzan Aloeswood Incense (24 sticks)
A highly valued and scented wood, Jinkoh "Aloeswood" is used to make Jinkoh Juzan (Aloeswood Fortune Mountain). Jinkoh is noted as "graceful in nature, willowy in character, with a pinch of bitterness in mild taste" by old textbooks of Koh-Do (The way of incense appreciation). In Jiinkoh Juzan, Aloeswood, Sandalwood, and herbal medicines are used bountifully to create an elegant and tasteful fragrance.
As the incense is lit, a refined, subtle, and profound fragrance rises.
Enjoy a fulfilled moment and relax in the deep fragrance of Jinkoh.
Nippon Kodo's devotion to making fine incense follows a long and honoured tradition that started more then 400 years ago and can be traced back to Jyuemon Takai, better known as Koju, a skilled artisan in the art and the principal provider of precious rare and exquisite aromas to the Emperor of Japan and his court.
Many of those pleasing and enduring high-quality incense fragrances, which the company continues to produce to this day, as based on the original formulas created by Koju and later by Yujiro Kito, who was hailed as the genius of fragrance during the Meiji restoration period in the 19th century – around the time that Japan opened its doors and began to modernise itself.
