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
I love jasmine. I love jasmine essential oil more than any other. So you should be getting an extremely biased review right now! But then again, in another way, it has further to fall if it doesn’t live up to my hopes!
Oh, it’s more subtle than I thought it would be, although definitely jasmine. Also I am getting a hint of India. There’s a slight smell of what I imagine an Indian Temple to smell like.
It is floral but not quite as intoxicating as I might have thought. Some floral based incenses can be captivating but can be over bearing. Fortunately this doesn’t fall into that area. It has that sweet headiness with a mild hint of “new age” shops! I like it.
