Rikkoku Aloeswood Set - "Six Countries"
Rikkoku Set from Baieido, Osaka Japan.
This Rikkoku Set represents the "Six Countries" of aloeswood as personally selected over twenty years ago by the Headmaster of the Suifu-ryu Kodo School in Kyushu, Japan.
Each set contains:
1 gram Kyara: The most treasured of all types of aloeswood. The essence of Kyara is described as: "A gentle and dignified smell wth a touch of bitterness. The fragrance of an aristocrat in its elegance and gracefulness."
5 grams Rakaku: "A sharp and pungent smell similar to sandalwood. It's smell is generally bitter, and reminds one of a warrior."
5 grams Manaka: "Smells light and enticing, changing like the mood of a woman with bitter feelings. The fragrance is of good quality if it disappears quickly."
5 grams Manaban: "Mostly sweet, the presence of sticky oil on a mica plate is often present after smoldering Manaban. The smell is coarse and unrefined, just like that of a peasant."
5 grams Sumotara: "Sour at the beginning and end. Sometimes mistaken for Kyara but with something distasteful and ill bred about it, like a peasant disguised as a noble."
5 grams Sasora: "Cool and sour. Good quality Sasora is often mistaken for Kyara, especially at the beginning. It reminds one of a monk. Sometimes very light and disappearing."
