This olfactive sculpture is pure 100% nirvana in a bottle. This is a near exact representation of my favourite Japanese incense: Shoyeido’s Nankun Kodō.
It's a composition that is very close to my heart as I created it for my own personal enjoyment of this ancient art form that unfortunately I can't enjoy at home due to my family's dislike of burning incense.
Out of respect for their wishes, I composed this composition after hours of research and experimentation using the finest ingredients possible. I used the exact ingredients as documented about Nankun; however, I added more as some of the documented composition was extremely vague to say the least.
As a result, I had to improvise with the olfactive materials to find a near exact match to the accords I experienced when burning these precious sticks... however, the condition was that the materials I used had to be easily available in Japan over the last hundred years.
I used Ambretollide to enhance the nutty ambrette absolute. This is the only synthetic I used in this composition and represents a mere 3% of the whole composition. I'm proud to say that this composition is 97% natural!
