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.

南蛮の夢 - Dreams of Nanban
Revisiting one of Kz’s well loved incenses, using a new way of blending and manufacture, this incense presents gentle bursts of Brunei and Tarakan tones on a melodic agarwood baseline, exuding more refined elegance compared to the original Nanban. The scent generates a tranquil stillness almost like a protective sphere that negates all bad vibes and negative energies from the volatile world outside.

Comes in a 10 grams tube.
