Unlike Neriko’s flamboyant sweet creamy-woodiness and Bushi No Kaori’s serious and sombre character, Soryo No Kaori strikes a perfect balance in its scent notes. There’s dark woodiness, sweeter notes, zesty highlights and serene woodiness – all united in perfect harmony.
It is the scent of the monk.
Alongside oud oil, another key ingredient in this blend is authentic Japanese Hinoki wood oil. Hinoki has a long history of being used in traditional architecture including palaces, shrines and temples. It is also used in Reiki, healing and cleansing.
Soryo No Kaori has subtle suggestions of spices used in traditional incense mixes that are also regarded as having purifying properties. A gentle smokiness coupled with the classic ingredients paints a vivid image of an ancient Japanese temple, the Hinoki wood structure dark with age and its soft woody smell mixed with centuries’ worth of incense burnt. Threads of fragrant smoke rise from a bronze censer where agarwood and other incense materials are burning and exuding a tantalizing aroma.
The whole scene is one of peace and serenity.
