Enjoy incense with

Narcissus fragrance:

KAYURAGI Narcissus

Keynote: A green floral note of clear and velvety narcissus

★★★★★  “Now this is a excellent well-made stick, very low smoke and hardly any base, just around a 90% overall delicate burn. The Kayuragi people really know what they are doing and this scent proves it, not heavy or perfumery, just a great stick if you want to get away from a woody aloes/sandal for a time. Would make a nice gift to the uninitiated beginner to incense.”-Marc C.

★★★★★  “For years Kayuragi Aloeswood has been my #1 go-to incense. On a whim I decided to try the Narcissus and I can only say that Aloeswood is now tied for first with the Narcissus. I only use 1/2 a stick per burn as I have a very small space and it's perfect... the light, unimposing scent stays in the air for 2-3 days. I would call it more woody than floral but it's a pleasant combination of the two.” –M

Peony fragrance:

OEDO-KOH Peony

Keynote: Peony Tree
Love potion of the geisha quarter, enchantment of the floating world. The sweet scent of peony has untold charms.

★★★★★  “This incense is beautiful. I use it during my yoga practice to calm my mind and uplift my soul. I highly recommend it.” –Candida Junor

★★★★★  “This incense reminds me of when I was a kid and we had peonies growing in our yard. It doesn't have that fake smell that most incense has these days. I will definitely be buying this again.” –Jill

★★★★★ “The aroma on this one is very floral in an old school way, it's sweet and perfumy but with some very musky background.... something warm and fleshy about it. It lingers a bit but doesn't overstay it's welcome, no feeling of stale perfume or dead flowers”-Matthew

Gardenia fragrance:

MORNING STAR Gardenia

Keynote: Gardenia

★★★★★  “…Though I primarily use it for matters of spirituality and reflection, I would strongly recommend Gardenia to anyone who is looking to create a peaceful and reflective atmosphere; it is also a good incense to introduce others to, along with Sandalwood. Very refreshing and invigorating, and I find it makes the atmosphere feel more confident and energetic after the stick has finished burning…” - Gaianist
