The high quality incense crafted by hand by skilled artisans in Tokyo in the Oedo-Koh range have been specially blended to relate to folk tales and take inspiration from old Edo, the Japanese capital city from 1603 until 1868 (now known as Tokyo).
The Peony Tree (Hanamachi-botan) fragrance was chosen as the tree was popular in old Edo, amongst the teahouses in the geisha quarter. The peony is known as the “queen of the flowers” and the design and fragrance of this gorgeous floral incense reflects that to a tee.
It is clean burning, comes packaged in a paulownia wood box and an incense holder made of tin, (a popular metal during the Edo period) that is designed to resemble the stone pavements of Edo. Plus, there’s an English guide inside the packaging. Both the packaging and incense sticks are a lovely shade of pink. There’s detail inside the box too, with Ukiyo-e paintings printed inside to add to the authenticity of the Edo-inspired incense.
