Opéra Incense | Astier de Villatte

$78.00

Description

Opéra Incense by celebrated French ceramic house, Astier de Villatte. The splendour of the Palais Garnier. Ballet movements in the Great Hall: entrechats, pas de deux, ronds de jambes upon sumptuous parquet floors, polished with beeswax. Richly upholstered foyers reach to the very roof of the Opera, where thick streams of honey are collected from hives which spread forth giddying notes of Absolute Beeswax, rendered sublime by additions of Sandalwood and Styrax resin.

Thanks to its favourable climate, the best incense in the world comes from Awaji. Just off the coast of Kobe. The Koh-Shis, masters of scent, make incense in line with a thousand year old tradition that is handed down from father to son. They alone master the four production stages. First, the all-natural ingredients are prepared and mixed: exotic woods, plants and herbs, vegetable resin and perfume. Then the paste is kneaded, squeezed and shaped before being left to dry in the west wind for three days before being gathered into bundles.
