Oedo-Koh incense is a specialist range of Japanese incense inspired by the Edo period in Japan, from the 1600s to the 1800s. Edo was the name for the old city now known as Tokyo and it was renowned for having its own unique culture. Nippon Kodo’s Oedo-Koh incense was developed to tell the tales through fragrance of people and their lives, characteristic of old Edo.
Aloeswood was highly prized as a luxury fragrance in old Edo – as it still is today – and is one of the most expensive fragrance ingredients. Amazingly, it can even be more expensive in weight than gold. The aloeswood used in this incense is known as Kyara-Hime – it’s one of the finest forms and is sourced in Vietnam.
The high quality incense in the Oedo-Koh range is made by skilled artisans in Tokyo. The products feature traditional colours and scents, as well as Japanese patterns and surface textures on the boxes.
The Oedo-Koh Aloeswood incense is specially packaged with paulownia wood with a small tin stick holder, wrapped in a special Ukiyo-e painting, making this a perfect gift for any given situation.
