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.

安南の夢 – Dreams of Annam 
Presenting the cool, sweet airy notes of the best Crassna materials, the 蜜香树, that has graced the homes and interiors of temples of the Annammese nobility since they discovered this precious naturally fragrant wood. The solemn yet gentle and elegant smell was what was so coveted for by the mandarins of yore, its smoke spreading a mesmerizing tranquility. It was so treasured that they were even depicted along with other treasures on the Nine Dynastic Urns found in the imperial citadel of Hue, Vietnam, honouring the Kings of the Nguyen Dynasty.
