Shikun Jinkoh Aloeswood
Shikun Jinkoh – Agarwood
The scent of aromatic wood has always fascinated peoples of all cultures. In Japan, for centuries, incense was the center of a culture that developed and culminated in Koh Do, the path of incense or the art of appreciating incense: a ceremony of great refinement and sensitivity that appeals to the five senses.
The rich heritage of Nippon Kodo, which dates back to the Tensho era (1573-1592), inspires and guides us in the creation of this deep incense. Our artisans are bridges between the past, the present and the future, which is why this Shikun incense has its origin in ancestral cultures and the wisdom of precious and mysterious perfumes. Derived from carefully selected aromatic Indian sandalwood, its soft perfume is luminous and warm and produces an invigorating sensation.
The aroma of Shikun Jinkoh has the indescribable and slightly spicy charm of Borneo agar, a rare and valuable aromatic wood sought by collectors the world over. Its powerful fragrance recalls the ancient Kyanan incense from the famed master Koju whose technique perpetuates Nippon Kodo. Since 1575 Nippon Kodo manufactures incense with superior quality raw materials, combining its treasured artisan tradition with the most updated technology.
This large box is ideal if you burn incense regularly. Its lovely design also makes it an original fragrant gift!
