Product Review: Nippon Kodo Incense

There are so many things to love about Nippon Kodo incense. I first of all love their light, natural aroma. I personally have tried the Ka-fuh in  Aqua and Hinoki and both are calming. These are  made with selected natural and organic ingredients. The Aqua scent contains cyclamen and primrose and leaves me feeling happy and calm when I burn it. It also leaves very little mess, which is an added bonus in an incense. The Hinoki is also delightful with a scent of Japanese Cypress trees.

Nippon Kodo is a company run with environmental awareness,  from reducing CO2 emissions, to planting trees, reducing packaging and using more organic and natural ingredients. The corporation takes pride in “reducing the environmental burden caused by material procurement.”  In addition the company participates in cultural activities around the globe to share Japan’s fragrance culture and history.

Nippon Kodo’s incense are produced using  Japanese traditions  dating back  400 years. Japanese artisans began creating original, rare and exquisite scents especially for the Emperor of Japan and his court. “The incense that Nippon Kodo produces today are based on the original formulas.”
