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.
Nukubai is made from sandalwood, patchouli, tobacco, and vanilla. Nukubai is based on the element earth (do), which is said to heal loneliness and bring peace of mind from the warmth of the ash.
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.
These incense sticks are the highest quality that I have experienced. While they are initially expensive, the price pays off because of their quantity and quality. I am intellectually ignorant of the five elements that are described, but they are undeniably related to Western traditions upon experiencing the effects.
Glorian truly provides the highest quality incenses available on the market. This product is by far the most fragrant and innately crafted incense I have so far purchased. It has a deep and soothing aroma that is at the same time vivifying to both the mind and soul. I highly recommend this product as a powerful addition to meditation, prayer and a general ambience of peace and cleanliness.
This is my first purchase of a more premium grade incense and these do not disappoint. The moment I opened the packaging (which a lot of care and intention went into designing) I knew I was in for a pleasant sensory experience as the fragrance permeates the air prior to lighting. Burns clean and lifts my spirit, it even comes with a little stand. Will definitely give the other scents a try.
