The fragrance of Meiko Shibayama has two basic fragrance notes. One is a woody note: It is based on the fragrant sandalwood, combined by our own original blending methods with traditional herbal medicine. In addition, scents are brought up elegantly and calmly, and a powdery musk scent softly rounds up the fragrance. The other is a floral note: delicate cherry blossoms, one of the most appreciated in Japan. The kind and mild scent of Shibayama talks to your heart deeply. Incense with less smoke.
