Shoyeido Overtones Japanese IncenseSticks are their newest range of incense sticks (2016). Developed in Kyoto, Japan after researching and adopting customer feedback over a number of years. This is a range of blended ingredient sticks, each with a particular top-note. They are Cinnamon, Frankincense, Sandalwood, Tea Leaves and Vanilla. These top-note fragrances are supported by blends of plant extracts and spices.
Overtones Sandalwood features the top-note fragrance of soft and warm Sandalwood, blended with Benzoin and other spices. The aroma with these sticks is warm, inviting and meditative.
The Sandalwood tree is sacred to Buddhists and other Eastern religions. The perfume given off by its aromatic wood has the virtue of relaxing the body and calming down the mind. It induces spirituality and withdrawal. Any occasion is good to use it, but especially helps internal development and study.
