Meikoh Shibayama Incense (430 Sticks) - Meiko SHIBAYAMA Floral Sandalwood
Fragrance of Powdery floral wood, based on Sandalwood and mild herbs.
Meikoh Shibayama incense is a specialist form of Japanese incense made by Nippon Kodo that has the aromatic fragrance of a floral meadow.
The incense was created to conjure up the scent of a spring meadow bursting with colourful blooming flowers. The incense has a floral, wood and herbal aroma and it’s a clean burning, low smoke product.
The base notes of the Meikoh Shibayama incense are sandalwood and hinoki, otherwise known as Japanese cypress, which together provide the woody elements of the scent. The floral and hints of herbal notes come from the top notes of the fragrance, which are produced using ingredients from flowers such as rose, jasmine and lily of the valley.
When you light this incense, you’ll notice that it’s not an overpowering fragrance – it’s much more subtle. It’s got a good balance of floral and woody notes and is a lovely incense to have burning at home or at work. The incense comes in attractively packaged Japanese style rolls and the large pack should last you a while.

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.

Den perfekte introduktion til den fineste japanske røgelse.
Hvordan kan den billigste røgelse fra Nippon Kodo mon kaldes 'Quality Collection'? Jo, der medfølger ikke den lille røgelsesholder som i mange af de andre serier, og der er måske sparet lidt på indpakningen. Der er 'kun' 20 pinde i en æske (mod f.eks. 50 pinde i en æske Morning Star). Men indholdet i røgelsen er der ikke sparet på! Du får et fantastisk udvalg af traditionelle japanske røgelser ud fra udsøgte gamle opskrifter - store klassikere fra en rig tradition til en meget, meget rimelig pris. Der er hele 12 forskellige dufte at gå på opdagelse i. Luk øjnene, nyd duften, og se for dig japanske zenhaver, kimono-klædte kvinder, buddhist-templer, te-ceremonier, bonsai-træer, fine klokker i vinden og nyudspringne kirsebærtræer - altsammen med en ophøjet ro og estetik.
