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.

The History of Japanese Incense
Staff Review by Brett Almond
You can tell these are Japanese made just by the title. I mean what a great name, 'Comfortable Time'. You can imagine yourself after an honest day's work on an English farm in the 1950's, sitting on your favourite sofa in your lounge, slippers on, faithful sheepdog (probably called 'Patch') by your side, feet on the footstool, most probably puffing on a pipe. Man you are comfortable! In fact you are having a 'Comfortable Time'. The only thing that really doesn't fit in with this scene is traditional Japanese incense. But could times be about to change?!
So joking over for now, the most obvious smell out of the packet is the lavender, smelling just like lavender essential oil. The rosemary is immediately less obvious. The stick definitely has a sweet smell. On lighting, the smoke maintains some of that sweetness, but as with every lavender incense stick I have ever smelt you never seem to get that full pure lavender hit in the smoke. I think that is the nature of pure lavender when burnt. However, there is a definite sense of lavender and the smoke has a smooth, drifting, sweet texture with a mildly (not unpleasant) burning smell in the background. But it is not overtly floral. In all, a nice sweet incense. I think our 1950's farmer would either love it and want no fuss, or would ignore the sticks and just marvel at how printing techniques have really come a long way these last few years!
