Tokyo Kodo have combined the ancient olfactory art of Japanese incense appreciation, with the enchantment of French perfume. We look upon our incense as invisible art.
Our flagship incense series featuring fragrance techniques where East meets West.
First Collection- our refined incense series that blends the western concoction of fragrances and Japan’s traditional way of aromatic incense.
Fragrance is invisible art. Each whiff of aroma is a meticulously blended with consideration of the spatial movement of the evanescence, sprinkled with our heart and soul.
assing on the tradition of aroma since time immemorial Revising sandalwood with modern sensibilities
Lauded as a gift from nature, the sandalwood has always been treasured by our ancestors for its retention of fragrance over long periods of time, and treated as a miraculous blessing in our lives. The Classic Series reimagines the sandalwood while retaining its traditional essence. We hope to readjust our natural rhythms as humans by acknowledging the beauty of fragrance that has transcended through time and space, like the agarwood and Indian sandalwood. This series stays by you, in a special moment that is truly yours.
Order-Made Premium Incense A Collaboration with Artisans
This series exemplifies our spirit of TOKYO KODO that imagines fragrance as an invisible art. We introduce two types of angelic fragrances- the somberness lingering at formal cleansing ceremonies and the gentle warmth. The fragrance stand is crafted by sculpturist Katsuhiro Akihama with the image of wings, whereas the package design is hand painted by artist Izumi Owada. (Made-to-order)
Seasonal Series incenses are made with beautiful natural products to provide you the most refined the scent.
Once-in-a-lifetime chance of fragrance
While living in the south of France in Grasse, I was surrounded by nature. This made me realize that nature gives us strength and allows us to relax. TOKYO KODO aims to use these experiences to create incense fragrance as natural as possible products. The complex nature of natural products creates a way that the fragrance can reach our senses and touch our hearts. By following our beliefs, we are able to create a unique ‘Once in a life time’ fragrance.
