The literal translation of Mainichikoh from Japanese into English is 'Incense for everyday use'. This sweet and woody aroma of Sandalwood is highly reminiscent of Japan and very popular there - this being one of their best-selling items.
This fragrance recipe developed during Japan's Meiji Era (1868 - 1912) by master Incense blender Yujiro Kito to "nourish the hearts of those who live hard day after day, so that people use it every day”.
