Behind The Creation

Sandalwood · Byakudan

Sandalwood, or Byakudan in Japanese, has long been a coveted incense wood, with Old Mountain Sandalwood standing out as a superior variety due to its creamy and woody warmth. However, increasing demand over the years has posed challenges in procuring sustainable high-quality Sandalwood, resulting in limited availability. Kyukyodo’s Sandalwood seeks to capture the essence of this natural incense wood in a contemporary presentation, using a modest amount of Sandalwood and other aromatic substitutes that offers a sustainable supply for daily indulgence.
