OEDO-KOH - Peony Tree

Alternative Views:

Price: $19.00

Product Code: 38202

Love potion of the geisha quarter, enchantment of the floating world. The sweet scent of peony has untold charms.

The enchanting peony enjoyed enormous popularity in Edo. Its bewitching form is reminiscent of a beautiful geisha, and gazing
upon a peony you can almost hear the music and see the dances of the geisha quarter. This was an exclusive world for the
privileged few, and its is said that customers' time spent in tea houses was measured by sticks of incense.
The fragrance of the peony, "queen of the flowers" evokes this beautiful and evanescent world.

5 of 5 Smells amazing! October 21, 2020
Reviewer: Jill from Minneapolis, MN United States  
This incense reminds me of when I was a kid and we had peonies growing in our yard. It doesn't have that fake smell that most incense has these days. I will definitely be buying this again.

5 of 5 Nostalgia in Late Summer October 20, 2019
Reviewer: Kristen Wegner from Waltham, MA United States  
Peony Tree is quintessentially Japanese. Floral and woody without being cloying or overstated. It fills me with nostalgia for misty nights in late Summer, in gardens where peonies droop their heavy heads in sleep, the sound of shoji doors sliding shut, the sweetness of tatami, and a pervasive stillness in the midst of a perfect moment never to be recaptured.

4 of 5 Beautiful! July 17, 2018
Reviewer: Jennifer  
Doesn't burn with a traditional incense smell--this is a true Japanese incense with little wood burn scent. Very beautiful. My favorite in this like is the Cherry Blossom, which is above and beyond. But all of them smell nice. This is similar to Cherry Blossom but even sweeter and more floral--definitely a good one for those who like perfumey scents.

5 of 5 Sensual March 26, 2018
Reviewer: Matthew from Indianapolis  
The aroma on this one is very floral in an old school way, it's sweet and perfumy but with some very musky background.... something warm and fleshy about it. It lingers a bit but doesn't overstay it's welcome, no feeling of stale perfume or dead flowers

Perhaps not for everyone or for every situation/moment, but if you love the smell complicated and musky floral smells and old perfume, there's an intimate charm to be found here
