This recipe containing sandalwood, patchouli and cinnamon was inspired by the spectacular Kinkaku-ji temple's reflection in Kyoko-chi pond.
If you prefer incense that is a bit more on the earthy/spicy side without sacrificing the traditional subtlety of Japanese incense, Golden Pavilion fits the bill.
Lady Lorien's impressions: This blend highlights the warmth of sandalwood with a gentle touch of cinnamon and rounds it out with the barest hint of patchouli, making this a uniquely earthy incense. Personally, I wouldn't label this incense 'spicy' as I think it is more warm than hot, but the cinnamon and spices are definitely present in the blend. Golden Pavilion is a lovely incense to burn any time, day or night, and one that will be enjoyed by anyone that appreciates quality incense.
Shoyeido incense makes some of the finest Japanese incenses and is burned in temples throughout Japan. Blended in Kyoto for over 300 years by masters using centuries-old incense recipes and techniques.
