Here I am going to list what I consider to be the best Shoyeido incense sticks.
The list will start at the cheaper options, and go up in price as the list continues.
Moss Garden is probably the most popular incense blend from Shoyeido’s “Daily Incense” product line. The benzoin and patchouli are the heart of this fragrance. A very playful fragrance. I would happily burn this everyday.
Pride of Kyoto
Shoyeido Pride of Kyoto is simply fantastic.
Agarwood, benzoin, and a hefty helping of clove.
It is meant to exhibit the very essence of the city of Kyoto.
An amazing floral incense stick from Shoyeido.
Other additions to the scent include camphor, patchouli, and clove.
A truly amazing scent which actually clears my sinuses due to the large amount of camphor in the formulation.
This is one of my personal favorite incense sticks from Shoyeido.
Shoyeido Infinity incense sticks have a very potent bitter agarwood scent.
Surprisingly, I almost prefer this incense stick to Translucent Path.
For whatever reason, I feel it has a little more character, despite having less of a kyara aroma.
This is Shoyeido’s flagship kyara incense stick. It is also their most expensive. They state that it took them a decade to perfect this recipe. It is a decadent bitter Vietnamese kyara incense stick. Probably one of the best ones I’ve ever smelled, from any incense manufacturer.
