Series 3 Incense was launched in 2002 and was devoted to the five main spiritual teachings of humanity:
Kyoto – Buddhism, and Shintoism
Avignon – Catholicism
Jaisalmer – Hinduism
Ouarzazate – Islam
Zagorsk – Orthodox Christianity
Each of the fragrances is named after the cities significant for those teachings.
Kyoto is Buddhism and Shintoism, a fragrance for meditation, named after the city of Kyoto, considered to be the heart of Japan. Kyoto is calm and wise, it takes us through the temples of the city, making us think and reconcile. The eternal green aromatic cypress mixes with calm and powerful elegance of cedar; vetiver invites us to listen to the breathing of black and warm earth. Powerful, yet not rough, Kyoto can also be found in a form of fragrant candle for the house.
For thousands of years, people around the world have burned incense to honor their ancestors, purify the air, worship deities, accompany rituals or merely for the pure enjoyment that incense brings. Kyoto is a spiritual journey to the serene temples of the city known as Heart of Japan. Dry and calm, the cedar note in Kyoto is evident, swirling with the earthy scents of spicy, smoky vetiver and the juniper-meets-evergreen aroma of cypress. Serene and earthbound, Kyoto's quiet power is never harsh; it's a meditative scent, bringing to mind relaxing in one of Kyoto's legendary rotenburo (outdoor hot spring baths) nestled among the legendary cypress trees.
