CELEBRATING THE JAPANESE ART FORM
MADE BY HAND
For more than a thousand years, the Koh-shis or Masters of Aromas have produced the finest incense in the world on an island off Japan. Meticulously crafted using ancestral techniques and the finest quality natural ingredients, our exceptional range of transportive scents are a true celebration of the sacred Japanese art form.
The Koh-shis' incense is widely regarded as the best in the world, owing to their access to the finest natural ingredients. Grown on the island, the ingredients such as cedarwood, sandalwood and frankincense create the perfect fragrance profile, resulting in some of the world's finest incense.
Using ancient techniques that have been honed over centuries, raw materials are rigorously kneaded to create a rich and aromatic dough that's left to soak up the fragrance for two weeks. This process enhances the scent and ensures it's evenly distributed throughout the incense. The dough is then cut and rolled into long, narrow ribbons, ready to be dried and bundled by hand.
The island's high humidity levels and stable temperatures create the optimal conditions for ageing incense, leading to rich, complex and long-lasting scents that mature and deepen over time.
