The timeless scent of lavender is like a balm for the soul. It evokes a marvelous scene in which a fresh and perfumed breeze caresses our skin and relieves us from summer heat. In the Tale of Genji, the young Murasaki mentions the Kobin Wakashu quoting these verses: “When you miss your loved one and think of the person you can rely on, it is called the purple connection.” Purple colour - murasaki in Japanese - is an essential theme of the Tale of Genji. It refers to love and the delicate lavender flower.
The Yume no Yume incenses - literally dream of dreams - combines poetry and fragrances. They evoke quotes from the Kokin Wakashu, Anthology of Ancient and Modern Japanese Poetry. This collection of waka poems was published in the 10th century, about 100 years before the famous Tale of Genji.
This large box is ideal if you burn incense regularly. Its lovely design also makes it an original fragrant gift! Please note that the number of sticks is approximate and may vary depending on the batch.
