On October 7th, 2017, after over a year of planning, design, and development, we were proud and excited to launch Kikoh Incense. At the time Kikoh carried the three most well known Japanese brands available in the US, and we were very grateful for their support as we started up. Now, five years later, Kikoh carries 16 brands and 300+ products from the most well known incense manufacturers across Japan. We are so grateful for the support of our Japanese partners, the many notes of encouragement we've received, and the patronage of our customers over the past five years that made the success of our business a reality.
To celebrate our five-year anniversary, we're giving one fortunate customer one of the most revered incenses in the world: Baieido's Kyara Kokoh. Synonymous with unparalleled luxury and fragrance, Kyara Kokoh is made from the most exceptionally rare and extraordinary Kyara known to exist, personally selected by Baieido's Nakata family, and made completely by hand in a centuries old process rarely seen today. Every order of $50 or more placed between October 7th- 22nd will be automatically entered to win (see below for official giveaway rules).
It's been quite a journey along what we've come to call "The Fragrant Path." When we started, our intention and our challenge was to honor the spirit of the master Japanese incense manufactures we represent, many of whom have a long heritage developed over centuries of practice. Five years later, we strongly believe that the experience with Japanese incense begins well before it is burned, and includes the purchase experience, how products are presented, boxed, and shipped. It is in this way that we honor the fragrant woods that are a gift from nature as well as the skill of the manufacturers who create the exquisite incense we offer.
With great appreciation, thank you to all of those who have been there with us over these past five years, and those new to come. It is our sincerest wish to continue to provide exquisite Japanese incense that brings joy and serenity to the lives of our customers as we continue along the Fragrant Path together for many years to come.
