Editor's Note

"Dense, waxy, and mysterious by nature, Ambergris by Kousaido juxtaposes intense sweetness with a dark, moody accord."

Behind The Creation


Ambergris, a scarce and highly valued substance in fine perfumery, finds its natural origins in the digestive system of sperm whales. Harvested from the depths of the ocean or occasionally discovered upon the shores, this raw ingredient has become subject to strict regulations and prohibitions in contemporary times. Kousaido's Ambergris presents an artistic attempt to evoke the aroma of this deep-sea rarity, through plant-derived materials and aromachemicals. The incense sticks are hand cut in small batches and housed in a Paulownia box which enhances their natural fragrance over time.
