Nippon Kodo Oedo-Koh incense
This range of incense from Nippon Kodo refers to the period in Japanese history known as Edo. At that time, the capital was Edo (now Tokyo). Each fragrance in this range evokes different situations from everyday life during this period.
The love potion of the geisha quarter. The sweet scent of the peony is extraordinarily charming and was very popular in Edo. Its distinctive shape is reminiscent of a beautiful geisha, and when you look at a peony flower, you can imagine the music and dancing of the geisha quarter. It was an exclusive world, reserved for a privileged clientele. It is said that the time spent by customers in the teahouses was measured by incense sticks.
The scent of the peony, the 'queen of flowers', evokes this magnificent, evanescent world.

The hustle and bustle of the bath house, where neighbours laugh and splash together. A warm and friendly fragrance for the end of the bath.
Private baths did not exist in the Edo period, which is why public baths were built. The first steam baths were replaced by large bathtubs. These baths were egalitarian places, as customers were undressed and rubbed shoulders with each other regardless of age, sex or even rank.
Water Drop incense has a floral fragrance reminiscent of a lotion used in those days as soon as you got out of the bath.
