Back in the Muromachi period (1338-1573), when fragrance appreciation became a trend among members of Japan's imperial court, people talked about "listening to fragrance": the way each scent has some characteristics that are carried in the wind like sounds from musical instruments. The source for this information is Nippon Kodo, one of Japan's premier incense makers, which traces its lineage pretty much back to the same period. If you want to try to discern these special characteristics for yourself, the Nippon Kodo Hanazutsumi Floral Incense Assortment is a great way to start!
The Nippon Kodo Hanazutsumi Floral Incense Assortment contains three different types of incense sticks: cherry blossom, violet, and white plum. Each has its own personality but they all have something in common: a floral base that makes Japanese incense more elegant and mellow than the incense produced in other parts of the world. Create your own fragrance appreciation sessions using these exquisite incense 140 mm (5.5") sticks that emit very little smoke and come in beautiful florally themed packs!
