Editor's Note

"Potent and captivating, Kousaido’s Lotus inherits the house’s signature sweet musk in abundance — an ideal choice for those in search of high-performance alternatives."

Behind The Creation

Lotus · Hasuka

Lotus — a symbol of both purity and perseverance — serves as the muse for Kousaido's eponymous creation. The incense seeks to capture both the delicate aquatic essence and the unmistakable sweetness associated with this symbolic flower. Hand cut in small batches, each incense stick bears the mark of imperfections, celebrating the craftsmanship of Kyoto's incense makers. Every creation comes in a Paulownia box, which allows its natural fragrance to mature and enhance over time.
