Editor's Note

"A proud and euphoric fragrance, featuring the stimulation of tingling, minty notes over a woody and syrup-like base."

Behind The Creation

Pride of Kyoto · Kyojiman

Guided by the deep-rooted pride and kinship felt for Kyoto, the namesake incense brings together two fragrant woods that form the very foundation of Kyoto's incense making culture. Once lit, the note of Benzoin instantly presents a sweet induction that leads to a fond redolence of spice and woodiness. As noted by the house, the current edition of Kyōjiman’s recipe dates back more than six decades ago while its inaugural formula is even older, making this incense a modern classic in Shoyeido’s Premium Incense Collection.
