Traditional Japanese Incense

Regular price $29.00
Regular price Sale price $29.00

The first formal record of incense being burned in Japan occurred when a log of fragrant agarwood drifted ashore on Awaji Island in 595 CE. Today 70% of Japan’s incense still comes from that small isle – including this set of traditional Japanese incense sticks. Each box holds approximately 50 incense sticks, and each stick burns for 25 minutes.

Available in two scents:

Rose: rosa damascena, rosa centifolia and rosa gallican officinalis

Sainte T: green leaf, flower stems, rose, freesia and musk
