Elemense (element + sense) is a special brand from Nippon Kodo, the 440 year old Japanese incense maker, highlighting centuries of craftsmanship and knowledge. Elemense is based on the teachings from the "Five Elements Theory" of Chinese philosophy and the "Ten Virtues of Koh (incense)." The "Five Elements Theory" states that everything is made from five basic elements: wood (moku), fire (ka), earth (do), metal (kon), and water (sui). Elemense incense is designed to incite all five senses.
Each Elemense incense is exquisitely designed and crafted. Every detail has been thoughtfully prepared.
Each incense is a blend of natural aromatic materials.
Kiyobi is made from agarwood (aloeswood), cedarwood, sandalwood, and hinoki. Kiyobi is based on the element fire (ka), which is said to purify the spirit and body by dispelling negative thoughts.
Contains 40 sticks of incense and a mini incense holder.
Burn Time: Approx. 30 min.
Take a moment to light the incense. Let the fragrance quietly infuse the air. Watch the ash fall and surrender to the passing of time. Take delight in the moment as the fragrance slowly envelops you. It will leave an imprint in your memory. Dial in all five senses to the invisible fragrance. Allow your senses to be drawn into the transcendent world of incense, and witness how the fragrance takes on a visible form.
Out of all the incense brands and ones I have tried in stick-form, so far, this seems to be one of the best. It has a unique, pungent yet uplifting scent, pure, and as soon as it is lit, it engulfs the room with its unique beautiful scent that is perfect for meditation, and starting off the morning. Can instantly feel the difference internally. I also at times, burnt this before bed. It also lasts a fairly longtime after being burned. Highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a very high quality incense, it is well worth the price.
I typically gravitate towards the Tibetan incense due to the medicinal properties. I was interested in trying something that was more expensive and higher quality. I can tell Japanese culture take their incense seriously after using this incense. This did not disappoint me at all. I can tell a positive difference in my atmosphere around me when using this high quality incense during meditation or studying books/courses. If your new to incense I would highly recommend giving this one a try at least once to experience it for yourself. The scent is beautiful.
