A bit more on the earthy/spicy side without sacrificing the traditional subtlety of Japanese incense, Shoyeido's recipe for Kin-kaku ''Golden Pavilion'' contains sandalwood, patchouli and cinnamon was inspired by the spectacular Kinkaku-ji temple's reflection in Kyokk-chi pond. It continues to be one of Shoyeido's best selling creations.
About Shoyeido: Shoyeido is a 300 year old, family owned Incense maker in Japan, and one of the few who still practice the traditional method of hand made incense. To create just one fragrance, Shoyeido's master artisans blend anywhere from 20 to 50 herbs and spices together with pure water. Shoyeido does not add a 'support core' to its incense, which means each stick delivers the pure essence of its ingredients without any waste or interference. So do as the Japanese do, and "Listen to Incense".
TrueRenu recommends Shoyeido to anyone who desires a pure, natural fragrance in his or her environment, especially if you don't like incense. If in the past you found incense to be too strong or overpowering, it was likely due to inferior ingredients, wrong ratios, or incorrect heating during manufacturing. Try Shoyeido and see how high quality incense can improve your environment and your sense of well being.
