this is a retrospective incense, which combined studies of previously made incenses (Rengetsu, 8 milleniums, Kunmeido tokusen kyara tenpyo, etc) together with experiences/inspirations of a recent trip to Chaozhou in China. I was visiting the century old tea trees at Fenghuang Shan, a quiet and serene environment as the region goes into a quiet lull after the hectic spring tea productions. Occasional whiffs of tea roasting permeates the air as some traditional roasters are still working on roasting their spring harvest. Beneath the huge wizen tea trees, through the leaves and foliage, glimpses of the blue sky, with elegant drifting of passing clouds. sitting by the side of a forest stream, hearing the water trickle.
made using a combination of top quality tarakan/brunei heartwoods blended, processed and re-iterated to my idea of “perfect” representation after six attempts. the scent’s soft and powdery tones are deepened with the sweetness of tarakan/brunei agarwood, presenting a 毓琇(elegant?) aesthetic that is important in the chaozhou chinese culture.
