While France has its master perfumers, Japan has the Awaji Island and its koh-shi. The heirs of an ancient know-how, these local craftsmen meticulously repeat the steps to creating these marvelous paper incense that hold many virtues. On this island, leaves and plants are naturally dried by the winds in this mild climate, which encouraged Ha Ko to identify and classify their benefits during combustion. This was 1983. This is how these marvelous sheets of paper (that hold antibacterial properties) came about. Today, they are distributed by the French website balboste.com. Elegant and with multiple purposes, this incense is refinement at its finest.
