A set of three types of wood incense; Hinoki, Keyaki, and Kusunoki. Waboku incense offers a powerful scent of Japanese trees (和木, waboku) that seems to spring up from the ground.
• Hinoki: A beautiful mix of hinoki (cypress tree) and sandalwood. This scent will bring to mind the calmness and harmony of standing in a still forest with the sun on your face.
• Keyaki: A quiet and dignified scent made from a mix of sandalwood and keyaki (zelkova tree). The huge zelkova tree has been around since ancient times and offers a refined aroma.
• Kusunoki: A powerful scent of trees that seems to spring up from the ground. The mix of sandalwood and kusunoki (camphor tree) creates a compelling aroma that arouses the senses.

Kousaido was founded in 1994, born out of the concept of “colouring your life with incense.”
For all their incense, traditional sandalwood is used as the base. A wide range of scents are layered together with the sandalwood, creating a mellow aroma out of more characteristically sharp scents.
