Editor's Note

"Traditionally woody, with an inviting floral sweetness, Koin is envisioned by its creator to be the epitome of a fragrance that blends the past and the present."

Behind The Creation

Koin · Light and Shadow

Koin, poetically interpreted as Light and Shadow, is a Japanese expression that captures the ephemeral nature of time, likening it to the transformative interplay of light and shadow. Inspired by the evocative concept of Koin and the ever-changing aromatic evolution spanning from the Heian Period to the present day, the incense encapsulates a fragrance that merges the essence of tradition and modernity. Thoughtfully crafted from an abundance of traditional incense herbs and a contemporary fragrance blend, Koin is suitable for both casual incense appreciation and ceremonial practices.
