Love Carrot is the first and favourite fragrance perfumer Chikako ever created for Tokyo Kodo. It's also Stīl Store's favourite incense - and we've sampled many.
The smell of carrot seed oil is earthy, ethereal sweet floral, with a leafy green note. Combined with sunny orange, patchouli, sweet vanilla and Indian sandalwood to create a complex sophisticated scent.
These high-end incense sticks are created by Japanese founder and perfumer Chikako. A unique concept, they combine the ancient art of the Japanese incense, with techniques learned in Grasse in the south of France, the perfume capitol of the world.
Luxurious and petite, this box of incense comes in a sliding can which also doubles as a travel container. Good things come in small packages.
