Do you remember this little seal that was carved and that now appears on most of KZ’s boxes? This was a phrase from Zhuangzi, that marked a reclusive phase in KZ’s life, in only doing the things that are worth time and effort. There was once Zhuangzi dreamt of a butterfly, fluttering around being carefree and happy, when he suddenly woke up, he came to his senses, and was met with an identity conundrum, was he Zhuangzhou whom had dreamt that he was a butterfly, or was a butterfly dreaming that he was Zhuangzhou? 

Taking an even deeper inspiration from this, and moving out from the reclusive state, can KZ’s incense products aspire to reach the level where beautiful scents can allow others a glimpse of relaxation, carefreeness and happiness? In parallel to Zhuangzi’s Dream of the Butterfly, this new KZ series is the Dream series, where ingredients of unrivalled qualities are made into iconic incense sticks that offer you some of the purest olfactory experiences. This series aim to present core notes that are the most pertinent to a region or a material’s identity. All of these incenses are carefully formulated, blended and then hand kneaded before being subjected to extrusion in a small press to form sticks at Kyarazen’s secret incense manufacturing facility.

唐宫の香 - Dreams of Ancient Palace 
Extracted from Tang dynasty incense manuals, and undergoing conversion from a kneaded incense recipe nerikoh into a combustible incense. It exudes a stoic calmness and the hushed serenity of the large airy palace halls in ancient Chang'An. Art, music, poetry flourished during the Tang Dynasty, and along with them, the usage of incense. Incense use had by then become so deeply ingrained in palace life, that it was part of almost all rituals. In fact, an unmissable sight in the regular Tang court session was an incense burner, along with a table dedicated to incense (香案). 

Comes in a 10 grams tube.
