1. KyaraZen Eight Milleniums Blended Incense Powder
The Eight Millennium incense powder is based on an exclusive incense used by the Japanese nobility during the Tokugawa period, the kneaded nerikoh from Yamadamatsu made famous by Emperor Nakamikado and the aristocratic Reizei family of the Fujiwara Clan.
A recipe that went through careful reconstruction by Kyarazen, Eight Milleniums is an incense well loved by many whom have had experienced it in the stick format. This powder version exudes the same elegance and fills the air with dignified presence, transporting you back in time over a century ago, into the hallways of the Reizei Family house.
“The Reizei Family house at the north of the Imperial palace, surrounded by gardens of exquisite green pines, contrasting with the grey gravels on the ground that are carefully raked into patterns. The sliding cypress screen doors made of washi-paper slides open, allowing this precious incense to waft through elegantly through the cool crisp air. A wisp of solitude, a sense of longing, a sphere of tranquility, and a moment of awareness. This is Eight Milleniums, an incense with its name taken from a Japanese poem. ”
2. Black Meat Premium Mysore Sandalwood Coarse Grains
Sandalwood, Santalum album heartwood formation occurs when the tree starts to grow older and larger, with the heartwood being filled with aromatic oils in increasing concentration with age, in short decades you get a yellow oily heartwood that has volatile creamy florals, in many decades you get a dense reddish heartwood that is rich beyond words, and up to over a century or more, gets you the densest, resin rich heartwoods that are brown to even shades of black, which the chinese describe as “blackmeat”. Often or not, the heartwood diameters of “black meat” sandalwood are above one feet, one can only imagine how old or how huge the trees had to be to give heartwoods of such grades.

3. White Shinkyara Powder
We at Kangiiten have spent many years tracking shin-kyara’s supply and formation methods. Years ago, one of our partners discovered old mother “shin-kyara” trees that have strong natural resination properties, and also the grafting method of the branches of the mother tree onto wild sinensis agarwood trees to accelerate natural resin formation. To this end, all the time, efforts and investments have paid off, allowing more shin-kyara to appear on the market with high resination qualities.
The differences in Shin-kyara colours is currently limited to just the different “mother trees” the grafts are from. Whilst most shin-kyaras when heated have similar kinamic, woody and oudy core base notes, the olfactory differences between the colours are in the more volatile early heating notes. White present strong cinnamonic tones, cool sweetness.
Recommended gentle heating temperature - from a low 70°C to 130°C depending on your heater type. A sliver gently heated can perfume a space for many hours.
