Shorindo Green Apple Incense Review

Memories of Japan Incense Sticks

Today I am reviewing Shorindo Green Apple incense sticks.

This came in the ‘Memories of Japan’ incense assortment.

I’ve never tried a green apple incense before so this should be interesting.

This is also a ‘low-smoke’ incense.

I imagine the note might be hard for them to pin down, as it’s not really a scent typically used in incense, but let’s see how it goes.

The product description states:

The fresh, invigorating aroma of green apples. Bitter sweetness with clean, fruity fragrant overtones.

Main Ingredients: Cypress
Length: 5.5″
Burn Time: Approximately 30 minutes.
Company: Shorindo


Cypress is definitely the dominant note here. There is definitely apple there too. It’s strange, because I’m not sure how they would add apple into their formulation. I assume, since this is a low-smoke incense, that they are using some sort of green apple oil in the incense stick. The green apple isn’t overpowering or anything, rather, it’s a bit light, although the aroma is certainly recognizable. It’s not like smelling a raw apple.

The cypress works pretty well with the light green apple scent and I believe they picked the right aromatic wood to accompany the green apple.

Personally, I usually prefer more ‘dry’ scents, but if you like the combination of wood and light fruit, then you may very well like this.
