In the Meiji era, a master of incense-making, Yujiro Kito, originated Japan’s first perfumed incense, “Hana-no-Hana,” a fusion of Western perfumery and Eastern incense-making. For more than a hundred years, Nippon Kodo has continued to make this beloved floral incense.
Made from high quality sandalwood, Hana-no-hana comes in three fragrances:
Rose: a sweet, floral-woody scent
Lily: a dignified, green-floral-woody scent
Violet: a calm, powdery floral-woody scent
Each fragrance has a clean, pure aroma, yet with very little smoke. Even after the incense is burned, the scent remains in the atmosphere for quite a long time.
The Premium Hana-no-Hana versions are made to give off deeper and longer lasting fragrances.
Includes approximately 150 sticks of incense.
Note: this incense does not include an incense stand.
I bought this incense as a gift for my mom, as she loved the floral incense I have purchased for her in the past from the gnostic store, and she absolutely loved this one as well! She lit one when I gave them to her, and I can verify that this is a high quality, beautifully scented incense. It definitely evoked positive emotions in me when smelled, which contributed to an atmosphere of peace and beauty in those moments. I highly recommend this incense and will be purchasing more for myself and others!
