The incense game. The guests are ready, the game can begin. The burner in which the small piece of wood lies is passed from hand to hand, it burns slowly. Everyone concentrates on the delicate scent from the plumes of smoke… Incensum pays tribute to Kōdō, an ancient Japanese ceremony where fun was had trying to identify different elements being burnt.
It is an imaginative recreation of these fragrances, the perfumer’s take on an ancient art, one of the most complex and refined that ever existed. In a meeting of the Orient and the Occident, you can smell the subtle, smoky notes of Wood and Incense and the depth of myrrh blended with papyrus and Woodleather®. In Japan, it is said that one “listens to” perfume, that it soothes the body, mind and soul.
