Nippon Kodo Oedo-Koh Incense - Chrysanthemum
Nippon Kodo's Oedo-Koh Collection is inspired by the Edo period of Japanese history which lasted from the 1600's to the 1800's. This era is famous for 'Iki' an urban culture of 'dandyism' that emerged to celebrate a minimalist approach to life that embraced thoughtfulness. This series was created by master incense artisans from modern Tokyo, using fragrance to represent a range of Edo-inspired scenes.
In China, since ancient times, chrysanthemums were believed to be enshrined by a “spirit”. The flower is also considered sacred in Japan, as well as being a symbol of “longevity” because of its long life-span in bloom. This incense is an aromatic rendering of chrysanthemum flowers. The floral scent of chrysanthemums will soothe your spirit and clear your thoughts. Made in Tokyo, Japan.

How to use
Stick incense are the most popular of all types of incense. Place the incense stick in an incense holder and light the end, then blow out the flame. An incense holder that is big enough to catch the ash that will fall as the stick burns will be best for cleaning up afterwards.
Nippon Kodo’s products have unique fragrances. These fragrances come from tying together closely guarded preparation skills that are more than 400 years old with the sensitivities of modern perfumers. Nippon Kodo inherited their skills through writings on the mixture of aromatic woods by Takai Juemon, an incense preparer who supplied the Emperor of Japan in Japan’s Tensho era (late 16th century). Perfumers with Japan’s best noses and instincts interpret and evolve that tradition to create exquisite fragrances.
