Bright aloeswood incense with a profile that's soft, rich, and dry, yet incredibly silky. A real treasure.
Silky soft aloeswood, with notes of aged wood, rich in fragrant resin.
One of the most approachable and delicate of incense, this Hainan Aloeswood could burn nearby without ever feeling overwhelming. The calming, subdued quality this incense brings to a room is as remarkable as it is ephemeral.
Aloeswood is an incredibly prized fragrant wood, more valuable that sandalwood. Aloeswood comes from the Aquilaria tree, and it only becomes fragrant once it has been infected by a particular mold. It has a scent profile that is both bright and dark at the same time, and is quite beautiful.
I encourage experimentation with incense and tea pairing, but I think that Hainan Aloeswood incense pairs quite well with all of Totem's green teas.
20g incense ~ 60x 21cm sticks. Approximate burn time of one stick ~ 30 minutes.
