Koh-Do Genji (Narcissus) Incense - A cool and gentle Floral fragrance. A Low Smoke Japanese Incense
Koh-Do* Incense – traditional high-quality incense, made by Nippon Kodo, in small, affordable and attractive boxes.
The top notes of this incense are the floral aroma of the Narcissus, with backgrounds notes of both Musk and Moss. These background notes add a little earthiness to the fragrance, hence this is not a heady or overpowering floral fragrance. The base Sandalwood makes this an overall soothing and gentle experience.
Nippon Kodo has dedicated this fragrance to Genji, the shining prince who is the main character of 'The Tale of Genji' a classic and masterpiece of Japanese Literature, written in the 11th Century CE. Known as the world's first real novel, this book remains in print to this day. The light and sophisticated flora fragrance is one of Nippon Kodo's Traditional fragrances and has been in production for many centuries. This is a low smoke incense.

* Koh-Do incense
offers an ideal introduction into the world of Japanese Incense, and an ideal choice for those wanting to try new fragrances before purchasing a large box.

See the Nippon Kodo ‘Large Box’ section of the shop for more details.
✓ The Koh-Do range is ideal for trying new fragrances, before committing to a larger, more costly box of Japanese Incense
Much care has been placed in the design of the Koh-Do boxes – all based on Japanese masterpieces. This echoes the importance the Japanese place on incense burning or ‘listening to incense’. Koh-Do is one of the ‘Geido’ or Fine Arts in Japanese culture, along with ‘Ikebana’ (flower arranging), ‘Shodo’ (Japanese calligraphy), ‘Sado’ (Japanese Tea ceremony), ‘Yakimono’ (Japanese pottery) and ‘Noh’ (traditional Japanese theatre).
