Japanese Incense | Koh-Do | Rose (Bulgarian Rose) | 20 Stick Box | Low Smoke
Koh-Do* Incense – traditional high quality incense, made by Nippon Kodo, in small, affordable and attractive boxes.
These Rose fragrance incense sticks offer a deep and sensual aroma, which creates a very special atmosphere.
The main ingredient in this incense is an oil, which is harvested in Bulgaria by hand. The petals from the roses produce an oil known locally as 'liquid gold' - approx. 1,300 petals are needed to produce just one gram of rose oil. The Rose variety is known locally as the Damask Rose and internationally as Bulgarian Rose.
The heady, floral fragrance is powerful and is noted immediately on opening the packaging. This becomes more subtle and sophisticated on burning, with very low smoke production.

* 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. Using Nippon Kodo incense, each Koh-Do box is ‘linked’ to a large box – varying in quantity from 220 to 480 depending on fragrance. See the Nippon Kodo ‘Large Box’ section of our shop for more details.
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 considered to be 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).
