Villa Médicis Incense | Astier de Villatte

$78.00

Description

Villa Médicis Incense by celebrated French ceramic house, Astier de Villatte. Along the length of the artists’ workshops, with their large windows opening over the rooftops of Rome, run the majestic gardens of the Villa. A centre for encounters and for meditation, the residents delight in the subtle fragrances of lemon tree leaves, lavender and oregano flowers. The air thrills with the woody aroma of the tall cedars nearby, and the inexpressible fragrance of the ancient stones in the heat of the sun.

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.
