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 tradition.
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 aroma.
True to the neriko flavor of yesteryears, our Neriko features buttery smooth notes of Mysore sandalwood juxtaposed against the rugged oudiness of wild Indo-Chinese oud. Delectable heart notes of plums and apricots gives it an irresistible allure, and traditional spices both ground it and give it an uplifting quality.
Delicate, refined and luxurious, Neriko is the scent of medieval Kyoto's royalty.
Mmm... this one is fantastic,
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 select.
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 shipment.
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.
