Shoyeido Himenoka Pressed Incense
Himenoka (Princess Fragrance) is part of the exquisite In-Koh Pressed incense line. It is designed for use on a heater. Each package has 4 scents each containing 10 – 12 pieces which lasts a long time when used on a temperature controlled heater.
Housed in a cubical, black box, the four pressed incense aromas in Himenoka are arranged in a slightly pyramidal scheme. Each of the four fragrances have a different colour (red, green, tan and purple). The incenses use different shapes that change in groups depending on the colour including fans, leaves, flowers and other organic shapes.
The red piece is a combination of woods and berry or fruit like scents delivering an extremely friendly and attractive scent reminiscent of cherry blossom with undertones of strawberries. The spiciness and woodiness to the scent that gives it added substance.
The green incense has notes of sencha/green tea with hints of mint, patchouli, and other floral qualities. It delivers a friendly and modern incense without any wood hints whatsoever.
The tan incense is a spicy sandalwood blend with lots of cinnamon and clove in the middle, a more traditional scent with chai undertones. There are also some nutmeg hints and the overall scent is reminiscent of a sugar cookie or even spiced tea or cider.
The purple incense is a very floral incense with strong hints of violet in the middle with subtle aloeswood tendencies. The fruit and floral scents are in perfect symphony with the aloeswood notes.
Shoyeido Incense contains no sawdust or any other fillers and no artificial scents or ingredients.
