Today I am reviewing Kogyokudo Bay Wind incense.
I am not yet familiar with their products, but that changes today.
The product description states:
Inspired by the winter winds through Awaji Island’s Ei Bay. Fragrant salt-laden breezes and aromatic mountain winds are what first go into the making of Awaji Island Incense Sticks.
Main Ingredients: Secret
Burn Time: Approximately 30 minutes.
Apparently this a low-smoke incense which has a secret fragrant ingredient.
The aroma of this incense is quite peculiar.
Primarily I am getting some sort of marine note, paired with images of sandy mountains and crisp air. For some reason, this incense makes me think of old martial arts movies, particularly mountain climbing scenes.
I believe there is something floral in there as well.
I am also detecting something bold in the bottom-end of the fragrance profile, but I cannot tell what it is. The smell of it seems to come and go.
Unfortunately, they don’t tell you what their ‘secret’ ingredient is.
I found this incense formulation to be more interesting then some of the other ones I have burned so far from the ‘Four Seasons’ incense assortment.
