Editor's Note

"Mirroring Fu-In Sandalwood, Kunpu Byakudan exhibits initial warm and vegetal qualities in its unburned state, followed by a transformative shift upon ignition, revealing its cool and lactonic facets with a hint of dampness — an olfactory signature of the house."

Behind The Creation

Kunpu Sandalwood · Byakudan

Sandalwood, or Byakudan in Japanese, is an essential raw material in the production of Japanese incense, owing to its distinctive olfactory profile, versatility, and spiritual connotations. Taking a minimalist approach, Kunpu Byakudan channels its singular focal point toward the essence of Mysore Sandalwood without any olfactory redundancies, exemplifying Minorien’s blending philosophy. As part of the Kunpu Collection, the incense comes in thicker and shorter sticks, imparting a potent sillage, suitable for a quick fragrance boost at home or on the go.
