previous Japanese incense-inspired blends have been outstandingly
popular, but Kyoto
marks the launch of our new 'Smoke Infusion' series and give incense
lovers an experience like no other.
Take a look at the ingredient list of the finest Japanese incense
mixes, and you notice they are short and simple. It is the quality of
the raw materials and the precise ratios in which they are used that
sets them apart.
In that vein, Kyoto was formulated with minimal ingredients. But its
more than just a concoction of essential oils. What makes it unique is
the fact that its infused with the smoke of fine Vietnamese agarwood,
vintage Indian sandalwood, as well as the smoke of honey.
painstaking and time-consuming process of enfleuraging the smoke took
almost a year to complete
And its no exaggeration that this is literally incense in a bottle.
Formulated using some of the most traditional ingredients, Kyoto is an
olfactory journey several centuries back to the imperial court of
Japan. Unscrew the cap, and you would almost think there is incense
burning right under your nose.
A word to the wise, if you are a fan of agarwood or sandalwood, you
don't want to miss out on Kyoto.
others said about this product:
delight it is! I must thank
you for providing me with a little sample of this one, its absolutely
amazing. I dont know why, but even before reading its description on
your website, the smell immediately took me to Japan! Thats all I could
think about, Its amazing how fragrances work with your memory and your
Kyoto is super incense-y! Maybe it's the dryness? The sandalwood in it
smells so especially good :-)
So, Kyoto is fantastic!!! So powerful and long lasting, really
enjoyable. Complex. The smokiness is far more successful and elegant
than I could have guessed. Really adds to the atmosphere this oil
creates. Really like bubbling oud chips. Lovely. You can consider this
a successful experiment as far as I am concerned and I hope you
continue to work with this technique in the future.
Kyoto is the best thing I've smelled yet! It's perfect in its
simplicity. It is smoky sandalwood incense and absolutely
stunning. The agarwood still shines through but doesn't
totally wipe out the sandalwood, which is a meek note by
comparison. The smokiness is rich without
overpowering. It is so well balanced I think I need a full
tolah! This is bottled beauty!
All I can tell you is that this stuff smells incredible. Truly. I feel
like I'm inside of a warm, fragrant cloud of smoke, minus any noxious
"smokey" (i.e., combustible) notes.
"Kyoto“ is great! It’s bright and friendly but at
the same time deep and mysterious - and smoky. I admit that I am not
the biggest fan of Sandalwood, but the "smoky“ Sandalwood in
"Kyoto“ is really nice. The whole scent is perfectly balanced
and has indeed a calming effect on me. I also like the subtle
Honey-note which softens some of the rougher edges and makes
"Kyoto“ very sophisticated
Lots of oud, oud smoke, sandalwood and sweet incense notes. It is
mostly reminiscent of burning incense, but it also has a deep, woody,
sweet and fruity side in combination with the smoke. Its a great work
of art, and very unique.
I have to admit, I am impressed. This is anything but a traditional
men's fragrance, but nonetheless, it is an impression work of fragrance
art. The immediate smell hits me as being deep cherry cola. I say
cherry cola, because at the same time I smell the dark fruit of the
smoke, the scent plays havoc on my taste buds and nasal cavity as if my
palate gets hit with an overload of sensory input in the form of fruit
and carbonation. It's almost like smelling what cherry cola taste like
without actually drinking anything. I would have to say that being
incensy smelling would be a too smoky of a description, as it would be
more like the remnant of a piece of clothing that has been saturated by
the smoke a fine smelling piece of Cambodian or Hindi agarwood and the
smoke smell has completely dissipated to leave just the finest aspects
of the deep fruity agarwood scent. I can definitely pick up the
sandalwood as smoke, because it differs from a sandalwood oil, as well
as some other ingredient or ingredients in the background that I can't
quite figure out but to justice in blending well to fine composure. All
in all, it is a quite pleasant linear blend that stays consistent in
the same scent spectrum for quite some time (I applied it at 10 pm last
night and can still smell a faint reminder at 11 am the next day).
Smells exactly like incense sticks!
