Astier de Villatte - Aoyama Incense
Aoyama incense by Astier de Villatte
“Damp wood, incense, and freshly laundered linen evoke for Sonya Park the typical smell of an old, Japanese wooden house from the neighborhood of Aoyama. Exquisite traces of chic patchouli (damp wood), smoked wood (guaiac and vetiver) and clove. A harmonious moss accord accentuates the feeling of freshness.”
Each box contains 125 sticks, of a burning time of 30mn each.

Known for its kind climate, the city of Awaji, off the coast of Kobe, Japan, is where the best incenses of the planet are made. They’re handmade by the Koh-shi, or masters of perfume, according to a thousand year old tradition passed down from father to son.
Only them master perfectly the four steps of production: proportioning of the exclusively natural materials, precious woods, herbs and plants, vegetable resins, perfume. Kneading the dough, pressed and worked lengthily, then left to rest for two weeks to be fully soaked in perfume. Cutting this hand-rolled dough, shaped in long and thin ribbons, into the right size. Westerly wind drying for three days and finally, the sticks are bundled together.
Each box contains 125 30-minute sticks.
