Neriko refers to Japanese kneaded incense. In ancient Japan,
neriko was used by aristocrats and government officials to scent
their sleeves. Our Neriko attar is tributes to one of
the most ancient documented uses of agarwood in the Japanese
Neriko was traditionally prepared in a base of plum flesh or
honey, with a carefully balanced blend of woods, spices and
herbs. After rolling the mixture into little pellets, it was
buried underground for several years to mature.
Neriko is never ignited or burned directly on charcoal. Rather,
it is gently heated to release its characteristic creamy sweet
True to the neriko flavor of yesteryears, our Neriko features
buttery smooth notes of sandalwood from Mysore and the
fruitiness of fine Cambodian and Laotian ouds. Delectable heart
notes of plums and apricots gives it an irresistible allure, and
traditional spices both ground it and give it an uplifting
Best of all: this new batch of Neriko utilizes our
1.5 year aged Yamada-Matsu Green Kyara macerated enfleurage base
— yes, the very same one that was used for crafting Kyara
To Byakudan (so don't mind the little bit of dregs you
may find in your bottle, the stuff is precious).
Delicate, refined and luxurious, Neriko is the scent of medieval
this one is fantastic, masha Allah.
First of all, the oils arrived today, and I had to try all
three right away. I like them all. The greatest surprise is
Neriko, which is my current favorite. I smell home made plum
marmalade with rum, cinnamon, vanilla and german chamomile,
cocoa butter, traces of ghee, raisins, perhaps massoia
I’ve been wearing the Neriko for several days now… I
actually got a compliment from my wife on smelling nice! I
think she’s started to sense the depth of oud’s presence.
I tried the Neriko sample tonight and it was very beautiful.
I love Neriko and I think it's the prettiest scent you've
made to date. I can smell the fruity plum and spice with
whiffs of sandalwood as well.
Just wanted to let you know that I received Bushi No Kaori
and Neriko yesterday. I have to tell you I really love your
Japanese incense inspired mukhallats; I have Idaina Dento,
JTB, and now these two....and I absolutely love each of
them. Thanks so much for the wonderful creations and quick
Another fantastic mukhallat that will take some time to
fully explore but for the time being is an amazingly
pleasant experience with a soft "fuzzy" warmth to it and a
slight fruitiness that reminded me of cherries (or could be
plums, I guess) with a touch of cinnamon. There is a slight
resemblance to Bushi no Kaori but they are distinctively
different. This one elicited the first compliment (first
comment period, for that matter) from one of my coworkers
who said I smelled "good, earthy." I remembered immediately
the description of this, which described the historical
process that entailed burying the pellets to age. This one
started out with a soft woodiness, then some spice
(cinnamon?), then some fruit appeared, then it became more
incense-like with subtly sweet leathery notes.
