Each unique scent strives to express specific historic transitional periods of Kyoto by enriching the candle with Kungyokudo’s concept of “Scent of Times”.

Depending on the historical era of the chosen candle, the associated scents transition from an authentic and traditional Japanese aroma to a more Western sensibility, according to the trend of the times.

 

1482 – MUROMACHI ERA

This beautiful scent aims to rediscover the subtle yet profound principles indicative of the “Wabi-sabi” sensibility that had been lost under Higashiyama culture.

A gentle blend of rosemary and clove added to a woody amber’s deep and warm sweetness. Reminiscent of the fragrant forests Samurai of the era loved. 

 

Kungyokudo candles are paraffin-free. 

The wick is made from unbleached cotton. It burns with a gentle flame.

Since 1594

Kyoto, Japan

In the third year of Bunroku era (1594), Kungyokudo, a long-established incense company, opened in front of Nishi Honganji temple and they served as an apothecary.
From that time, they have been serving many head temples of each school of Buddhism across Japan.

With more than 400 years history of heritage, Kungyokudo is Japan’s oldest incense supplier which has been making the scent for ceremonies and everyday life of each era.

While keeping the tradition and the unique skills of blending natural fragrances and medicinal plants nurtured over a long period of time, they create gentle scents and experience for the present lifestyle.
