5 of 5 Transported to Gion July 6, 2020
Reviewer: Steven from California  
As soon as I lit this incense, I was transported back to late nights strolling in Gion during Fall with the fragrance of incense wafting in the air. This is a purer aloeswood incense with a slight perfume note to it too. It is gentle and calming and I actually prefer this to the higher grade aloeswood incense. Such a beautiful and ethereal fragrance. The box that carries this incense is also one of the most beautiful I've seen and the metal incense holder is equally luxurious. I highly recommend this.

4 of 5 Beautiful! July 17, 2018
Reviewer: Jennifer from N/A  
Doesn't burn with a traditional incense smell--this is a true Japanese incense with little wood burning scent. Very beautiful. My favorite in this like is the Cherry Blossom, which is above and beyond. But all of them smell nice. This one has a very earthy woody smell.
