Palais de Tokyo Incense | Astier de Villatte

$78.00

Description

Palais de Tokyo Incense by celebrated French ceramic house, Astier de Villatte. Overlooking the river Seine, like a mysterious starship navigating the mysterious turbulence of artists’ imaginations, it dominates the view. A haunting fragrance floats between the raw cement walls of its wide, maze-like passageways, where a crowd of zealous and enlightened visitors feverishly gathers: intoxicating wisps of smoky wood, warm skin and metallic vibrations.

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.
