Morning Star Lotus Japanese Incense - a Luxurious Floral Fragrance.
The fragrance of exotic Lotus - a flower/fragrance used and revered in the religions of Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism.
Buddhists note the Lotus grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower’s most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment. In Buddhist legend, it was said that everywhere the Buddha walked, Lotus flowers bloomed. In Hinduism, the Lotus flower is especially associated with Vishnu and Brahma.
It’s common across all Asian religions that some (especially the most important) deities are depicted seated on a lotus flower.
The popular mantra ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’ as used in yoga, mindfulness and many Buddhist practices makes direct reference to the Lotus (Padme). Hence this fragrance is especially popular amongst people who regularly use this "Hail the Jewel in the Lotus” manta.
Karen @ Vectis Karma says "Whilst feminine and very floral, this fragrance has a wide following (both male and female), especially given its association with Buddhism and the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra. Anyone who has travelled to South or South-East Asia will be immediately familiar with this fragrance; and using it will bring back your happy memories of being there, no doubt.”
