Behind The Creation

Western Constellation · Saihou

Kousaido's Saihou, or Western Constellation, envisions the celestial stars in Kyoto's night sky as delicate petals descending from above. The delicate incense, imbued with a musky luminosity, evokes a cooling sensation akin to a midnight breeze softly brushing through the blossoms. As one of the offerings within Kousaido’s Scent of Kyoto Collection, the incense embodies a harmonious fusion of traditional aesthetics and innovative formulation. Made for contemporary indulgence, the incense emits significantly less smoke than its traditional counterparts, ensuring a clean trail of fragrance for an enclosed space.
