Edonishiki Iki Incense

Edo Nishiki Iki – Light smoke incense

Edo Nishiki has an delicious aroma, a bittersweet fruity fragrance with hints of crisp cinnamon and subtle vanilla undertones.

Toward the end of the Tokugawa era, the citizens of Edo cultivated art and culture. It was a time of flourishing prosperity and one of the expressions of this era was fabric prints, Edo Komon. In samurai society clothes were very simple but people wanted to look unique and different and sought to express themselves through prints, colors and drawings on their fabrics. These decorative motifs extended to the kabuki theater, nishiki woodcarvings and many other aspects of everyday life, evoking images of a dazzlingly beautiful world and even today those designed created long ago seem modern and are still a source of passion and inspiration. We hope you enjoy this exquisite incense.

The design of the box is inspired by Edo prints and reflects a genuinely Japanese aesthetic sensibility. This type of leaf pattern, Asanoha, is connected to the idea of children's health and growth as leaves grow strong and quickly. People use this type of pattern in clothing and other items in hopes of bringing good fortune. This large box is ideal if you burn incense regularly. Its lovely design also makes it an original fragrant gift!
