More About Nippon Kodo Incense
The Japanese incense company, Nippon Kodo, was founded over four centuries ago and originally began by producing high quality incense for the Emperor of Japan. The company has continued to thrive ever since, now accounting for more than 50% of the entire incense industry in Japan. The company have a great philosophy about the importance of celebrating incense and recognise that, although many people simply love the ability of incense to fragrance a room, for others, their use comes down to spiritual and religious traditions. In fact, Nippon Kodo say that, through the production of their traditional Japanese incense they aim to, ‘cherish the ancient traditions and values’. The ingredients of Nippon Kodo incense are all high quality and are sourced from around the world. Experts help locate and harvest the rare aromatic woods, natural gums, resins and other ingredients used to make their incense. Once acquired, the ingredients are processed by hand, and by machine, in their eight factories in Japan and Hong Kong.

More About Japanese Incense
Japanese incense (speaking in general terms) is refined, pure, light smoke and rich in natural ingredients such as sandalwood. They don't usually have the thin wooden stick centre that is often found in Indian and other incense sticks. They are normally pure incense right the way through the stick. They are often designed with meditation in mind. Due to the high quality manufacturing processes the incense goes through they can be a little bit more expensive than other incense on the market.

Staff Review by Brett Almond

These sticks have a real kick to them when you smell them straight out of the packet. Orange and lemongrass in equal measures hit you straight in the nostrils! There is a real sense of citrus with the lemongrass adding a sharper note.

On burning though the smoke loses that sharp quality but maintains a kind of upbeat emptiness. There is still a slight lemongrassy feel to it, but not huge. Nothing really grabbed me too strongly about its nature. It may sound a bit contrived but I get a sense of space with this incense and feel it is maybe a good incense for stimulating new ideas and new energies in you. This would indeed marry up with their description of 'Inspired Mind'. That's what it meant for me. If you buy it and feel like it, please add your own opinion in the review section. I'd love to read it.
