Mainichi Byakudan Everyday Sandalwood Incense
One of the main types of scented wood is Sandalwood, which is known for its sweet and rich scents. It is believed to bring calmness into peoples’ minds. Mainichi Byakudan (Everyday Sandalwood) is made mostly of high quality Indian Sandalwood and herbal medicines, which deliver a full-bodied fragrance.
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.
