Incense

Oedo Koh Incense

This fragrance has the warmth and friendly glow of the moment you step out of the bath.

60 hand-rolled sticks with a metal incense burner that resembles the stone pavements of Edo.

The Incense

These fragrances have been specially blended to correlate with the folk tales that were told during the Edo Period.
Each incense is colored with traditional colors.

The Packaging

One by one, these products are carefully hand crafted by the skilled craftsman of Tokyo.The incense is nestled in a paulownia box while the packaging is adorned with Japanese patterns in traditional colors. We paid special attention to textures and made sure the packaging has a luxurious surface finish.

The Ukiyo-e paintings printed inside the package express the aesthetic during the Edo period. Box size is 3 X 4 inches.

History

In the Edo Period (1603-1868) people didn’t have baths at home, and public bathhouses were built to meet the need. There were about 600 in Edo. At first they were steam baths, then large bathtubs were developed. As all were naked and people commingled without regard for age, gender, or rank, the bathhouse was an egalitarian place. Apparently another popular item was a scented lotion made with floral essences distilled using a still known as a ranbiki.
