"Predominantly woody, with a hint of bitter-sweetness that gently stimulates the senses."

Behind The Creation

Fragrant Tree · Nenjyu

Nenjyu, directly translated as Fragrant Tree, paints an olfactory picture as one reclining beneath a Zelkova’s canopy. Its woody traces caress like whispers from lofty branches, while the spicy coolness of the shade dances upon the skin. As one of the offerings within Kousaido’s Scent of Kyoto Collection, the incense embodies a harmonious fusion of traditional aesthetics and innovative formulation. Made for contemporary indulgence, the incense emits significantly less smoke than its traditional counterparts, ensuring a clean trail of fragrance for an enclosed space.
