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:
These boxed sets allow you to sample the fragrances or to give as a gift.
Premium Wooden Box: includes 30 sticks of incense (10 short sticks of each fragrance), a ceramic incense stand, and a lovely reusable wooden box.
Plastic Box: includes 30 sticks of incense (10 short sticks of each fragrance), a ceramic incense stand, and a durable, reusable box.
The boxed sets can be refilled later by purchasing the fragrances individually (note that these boxes are sized to fit short incense sticks).
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.
Burn Time: Approx. 10 min.
Incense sticks: W x H x D (inch): 2 13/16 x 3 3/4 x 3/4; (mm): 72 x 95 x 19
I got this beautiful box of incense as part of a wedding gift for some friends of mine. I haven't heard from them about it yet, but I'm sure they will enjoy and appreciate it. I have purchased these hana-no hana floral incense in their separate form for myself and my mom, so I know the wonderful scent and quality of these incense. I highly recommend!
I couldn't tell a difference in the fragrances. The scent seemed kind of cakey and artificial.
