Nanban was inspired from 南蛮, which means southern barbarian.
Nanban contains 57.5% of a selected indonesian fragrant wood, hand picked and ground personally.
binder content is 14%, other ingredients include a small amount of sandalwood, thai benzoin etc, to give the acidic/mild piney together with the aloeswood woody afterscent during burning.
The incense dough was heavily pounded for over a thousand times before extrusion.
Designed to perfumate rooms with its presence, like a loud barbarian barging into the room, his presence is bold and strong.
If lit at a window with an incoming breeze, its scent travels and permeates large distances.
