The gardeners of Komagome and Sugamo near Edo are said to have sparked the chrysanthemum craze of the Edo era. Fond of the fancy and spectacular, Edo dwellers loved the beautiful and fragrant flowers, which were displayed or fashioned into various shapes. Chrysanthemums were believed since ancient times to prolong life, and during the Edo Period the Chrysanthemum Festival became a yearly event where people drank chrysanthemum sake infused with medicinal blossoms. The smooth, refreshing scent of chrysanthemum will delight you as it did the denizens of old Edo. Chrysanthemums were loved by the people of Edo not only for their beauty, but also as a symbol of longevity. The fragrance is smooth, refreshing, and invigorating.

The rich translation of incense and the art of the perfumer weave the fragrance of old Edo.
Edo, the old name of Tokyo, was also called Oedo, the big Edo. It was a playful and stylish city, born out of a marriage of the elegant and the common, the coarse and the refined. People enjoyed the four seasons, treasured their friends and neighbors, and lived lives brimming with vitality. This collection was created by master incense artisans in Tokyo to express the fragrant atmosphere of old Edo. A single thin column of smoke beckons you to the stylish, modernist world that Edo represents. We invite you to bask in the fragrant world of Edo.

High quality incense
The fragrances of Oedo-Koh have been specially blended to correlate with the folk tales that were told during the Edo Period. Each incense is colored with traditional colors. One by one, these products are carefully hand crafted by the skilled craftsman of Tokyo. The incense is nestled in a paulownia box while the packaging is adorned with Japanese traditional patterns. We paid special attention to textures and made sure the packaging has a luxurious surface finish. The Ukiyo-e paintings printed inside the package express the aesthetic during the Edo period. Each box includes an incense holder that resembles the stone pavements of Edo. Tin was a favored metal by the upper class during the Edo period. It can be washed with water and will last for a long time. The product comes with an English explanation so it will be a great gift for any amateur in the world.
