New Green Tea and Coffee fragrances from Nippon Kodo

New Green Tea and Coffee fragrances from Nippon Kodo
Green Tea and Coffee fragranced Japanese Incense Sticks from Nippon Kodo's new Aroma Bliss range

The aroma of fresh Green Tea and Coffee from Japanese Incense Sticks. These sticks are refined and delicate - showing off their scents with sophistication and no hint of overpowering the 'listener'.

The fine Green Tea and Coffee ingredients are built upon a base of Japanese Binchō-tan charcoal. Sourced from Ubame Oak trees, this is considered to be the best charcoal available, as it burns at lower than normal temperatures. This ensures it does not release unpleasant odours and produces very low levels of smoke when burning.

These are beautiful boxes to have around the home and feature:

  • Approx. 160 5.5 inch sticks per box
  • The sticks are wrapped in fine Japanese tissue paper
  • Have a burn time of approx. 25 minutes each
  • A per stick cost of 12.5p each
  • Are made in Japan

Aroma Bliss Coffee and Green Tea show off Nippon Kodo's mastery of Japanese Incense to the full

An update on Morning Star Japanese Incense by Nippon Kodo

The Morning Star range by Nippon Kodo continues to be extremely popular with our customers - offering a wide range of powerful fragrances in great value packages. The past year has seen some new additions and some discontinuations across the range, so here is an update:
  • Frankincense, Myrrh and Sage (in packs of 50 sticks) were new in 2016 and have proved an instant success. Watch here for news about 200 packs in the future.
  • Cinnamon fragrance has been discontinued, and stocks are no longer available
  • 5 more fragrances have been discontinued - Lotus, Yuzu, Mimosa, Fig and Iris. The good news is that we do have stocks, but levels do vary - so check soon if these are amongst your favourites
  • All others are in production and we keep stocks of them all:

Our Top sellers are: Sandalwood, Cedarwood and Frankincense.
