Savor the deep, rich fragrance of aloeswood, prized by the people of old Edo as the most luxurious of fragrances.

Incense-smelling ceremonies were the practice of court nobles, feudal lords, and other wealthy people. While they may have lacked access to genuine fragrant woods, even common folk were fascinated with them, and they are frequently featured in works of Kabuki and Joruri theater. The word kyara, meaning aloeswood, even became a general term for ''something wonderful''. Experience the fragrance, and understand why it was the most highly prized of scents.
