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 marvellous and delicate earthy aroma exudes from the dense and luxuriant vegetation, with its enormous yakasugi trunks and limpid waterfalls.

Astier de Villatte incense is hand-made in Japan on the small island of Awaji, off the coast of Kobe. The incense is created using the world's oldest incense tradition, a thousand year old craft handed down from father to son. The Koh-sis Masters are experts in the four different steps of creating incense; mixing, rolling, drying and cutting. Throughout the drying process, the incense is exposed to the Western winds which carry a higher content of iodine, giving the incense a delicate and distinct scent.

The packaging is printed in letter-press and type-set by the last Master Printer in Paris.

Each box contains 125 sticks with a burn time of approximately 30 minutes per stick.
