Floral incense "Hana-no-Hana"

Floral incense "Hana-no-Hana" was created in 1911 by Yujiro Kito, a gifted incense master in the Japan's Meiji Era which is around 100 years ago, who fused Japanese incense-making techniques with the Western perfume culture.

More than 100 years after its birth, Hana-no-Hana continues to be loved by many people even today, as having laid the foundation for modern-day floral incense.

How to enjoy

The way to enjoy Hana-no-Hana is to relish the nokoriga that hangs faintly in the air after the incense has burned. When having visitors over, a suggestion is to burn the incense in the room beforehand. By using it in a remote location and letting the fragrance spread, you can enjoy a delicate and gentle fragrance.

*Nokoriga (lingering fragrance) : The fragrance that lingers faintly in a room after burning an incense.
