Kayuragi Japanese Cypress Incense Set
Welcome to the world of Kayuragi, where fragrance "Ka" meets with slowly wafting scented smoke "Yuragi". Comfortable fragrance, where calm wafts in. Inspired by Kimono (Japanese traditional wear) fabric, the package texture is smooth, and the colouring is dramatic. When the incense is lit, it's smoke and aroma wafts throughout the space and brings a feeling of relief and relaxation. It is not only from the pleasant fragrance, but also from the sight of the wafting smoke which will make you feel at ease.
The fresh scent of Japanese cypress trees (hinoki). This is a refreshing incense with hints of citrus and mild floral on top notes of woody cypress.
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.
