Oedo-Koh Fragrance from Old Edo beckons you to the stylish, modernist world that Edo represents. Water Drop is a fragrance that has a floral warmth just like the moment you step out of the bath.
- In the Edo Period (1603-1868 ) of Old Tokyo, people did not have baths at home, therefore public bath houses were built to meet the needs of the people.
At first they were steam baths, then large bathtubs were developed. As people were unclothed and mingled in the bathhouses without regard for age, gender, or rank, the bath house was a place of equality.
- A popular item for these bath house-goers was a scented lotion made with distilled floral essences using a device called "ranbiki." Water Drop aroma recreates the scene of fragrant old Edo bathhouses and the soothing scents experienced then.
- These incense are specially produced with traditional Japanese techniques, so there is no bamboo core for a clean burning and pure scent.
The stick type incense burns evenly, so its mild fragrance spreads constantly.
- A good incense for a private room to enjoy the fragrance by yourself or an intimate tea session with friends.
- Each box includes 60 incense sticks and a mini tin incense stand.
Each incense box includes an incense holder that resembles the stone pavements of Edo. Tin was a favored metal by the upper class during the Edo period. The tin incense stand included in the package can be washed with water and will last for a long time.
- Comes in a petite and cute package.
Perfect as a gift on its own or 2-3 boxes as a set!
Great for any day as a refreshment after work, for relaxation, while you enjoy some reading, listening to music, during yoga, or just winding down in a hot bath.
