Editor's Note

"Subtly sweet and spicy, potent aroma, with an almost unnoticeable smoke."

Behind The Creation

Kyoto Purple · Kyomurasaki

Murasaki, or the regal shade of purple in Japanese, holds a profound connection to the ancient capital of Kyoto, symbolising royalty and nobility. Coincidentally, it also echoes the name of the female protagonist in the renowned Tale of Genji, a lady-in-waiting at the Imperial Court of Japan. In harmonious resonance, the fragrance encapsulates the essence of refinement and dignity. As part of Shoyeido’s Tamayura Low-smoke Incense Collection, the incense is formulated with activated charcoal that emits significantly less smoke than a regular classic composition, suitable for a quick gentle fragrance boost indoor.
