Astier de Villatte Incense - Yakushima

$ 50.00

Description

Known for their ceramics collection, but also working on special projects and collaborations around the world, Benoit Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli, founders of Astier de Villatte, began their scent collection in 2008. In collaboration with Emilie Massad and Françoise Caron, their collection of different scents is inspired by their travels. Their incense is hand made in Japan by the Koh-Shis (masters of aroma) of the island of Awaji. The packaging is so lovely - a most beautiful blue box with gold leaf decorated paper. 

 

There is a primeval and mysterious rain forest on the island of Yakushima, full of thousand-year-old cedar trees, covered with rare mosses and wild azaleas. A marvelous and delicate earthy aroma exudes from the dense and luxuriant vegetation, with its enormous yakusugi trunks and limpid waterfalls. Box of 125 sticks, 30 minute burn time each. 
152 × 63 × 19 mm
