Hōrin Incense Collection - Horikawa, Genroku, Shirakawa, Nijō
Hōrin is a collection of incense created with all natural materials for relaxation and calming the senses. Burn time is relatively short, but the scent remains in the air long afterward.
Horikawa - Named after an old creek in Kyoto, Horikawa is the most popular in the collection. The scent is built on sandalwood and is sweet in the most disarming way. It makes you feel like you are relaxing at a beautiful Japanese inn.
Genroku - Genroku is a blend of sandalwood and aloeswood and its scent is the most traditional among the four. Without the sweetness of Horikawa or Shirakawa, the scent of Genroku is woodsy and very calming.
Shirakawa - Shirakawa is the newest addition to the collection. The scent is similar to that of Horikawa, but the sweetness of sandalwood is more restrained.
Nijō - Nijō is akin to Shirakawa, but with slight woodsy and musk notes. It is modern and relaxing.
