Inspired by the experience of walking among the rocks, moss, sand, and streams of a Japanese dry garden, these short incense sticks are crafted by master incense makers at a workshop in the ancient city of Kyoto.

Cylinders sold separately.

Each cylinder contains 100 clean-burning sticks in one of the 3 different scents.

Choose your scent below, or purchase the sample pack of all three scents here.
Wandering Moss – an earthy mix of oakmoss and cedar
Fallen Blossom – a fresh gardenia paired with green notes
Mountain Stone – a subtle blend of weathered sandalwood

Sticks have a burn time of approximately 20 minutes.

Place them in an Agave Incense Holder and light, smolder, and relax. Due to their handmade nature, no two sticks are exactly the same.

Gorgeous scent!

I purchased the Japanese Dry Garden Incense Sticks in the Wandering Moss scent. Just an absolute gorgeous scent that filled my apartment immediately. It’s a warm and inviting smell unlike most incenses that are strong and over powering.

Best incense ever!

Definitely worth the price! Once lighted, the fantastic aroma instantly takes over the ambience, giving you the feeling of tranquility and comfort. I absolutely love this scent, I can close my eyes and imagine a Japanese garden. It’s uniqueness makes it a great gift!

Refreshing smell

I love these earthy smells. I just wish the sticks were longer so it will burn longer cause I just love it.

Really nice, high quality

Mountain Stone, this has a very good construction, rather light but has for me a nice woodsy base with a sweet subtle high note. Fallen Blossom, OK this makes a little more of a light flower statement, it's a 1 note burn which is good cause it does it well. Wandering Moss, this is the most interesting of the 3, like it but it's hard to put a finger on exactly what it smells like, I do enjoy a new scent. No secondary note except there is a flash of a high end. What makes this line nice is if you care, very low smoke and most importantly no underlying cheap binder that can come through and ruin or make any incense a diminished experience. Overall these are good high end sticks, if you are a collector add them in, if not get the sample pack. Thanks!
