Incense is aromatic biotic material that releases fragrant smoke when burnt. Incense has been around for centuries, and it still has a place in many spiritual and religious rituals in cultures around the world.

In country like Japan, where tradition is well preserved. Incense is still widely used and evolved. For example, “Black Fallen Leaf Incense” designed by Japanese incense maker Kunjudo, is an elegant and fragrant paper leaf-shaped incense.

The beautiful paper incense leaves can be safely lit to burn and spread a variety of soothing fragrances on top of a special felt cloth and plate (lasting between 5-7 minutes), or left out as a decorative potpourri piece that will give of subtle pleasant aromas for up to 3 months.

These stylish left incenses come with three different fragrances:

  • Focus: Lemongrass, believed to stimulate body and mind with a refreshing scent.
  • Sleep: Lavender and cedar, thought to calm nerves and provide a sweet scent to fall asleep to.
  • Relax: Vetiver and cypress, used to relieve tension with a forestry fragrance.
