Shoyeido Premium Agarwood Incense : Sho-kaku / Translucent Path

4 reviews

Translucent Path is the crown jewel of incense. It is made ofkyara - the most cherished and fragrant form of agarwood. It is unlike any other fragrance on Earth.

Shoyeido's master incense crafters spent a full decade perfecting the recipe for this exquisite fragrance. With great care and clear intention, a true masterpiece of fragrance was born.

Incense is available in full pack of 37 sticks (18cm) and sample size of 9 stick (9cm)

A review by Kyarazen

"Maybe it is just the name of the incense playing tricks with my mind again, but when enjoying a lit stick of Shokaku, it takes me back to my overnight temple stay at Mount Koyasan in Japan. Waking up early to attend the morning service in the temple main hall at6am, everyone huddling around a kerosene heater in the cold freezing winter, whilst the monks, clad in their thin cotton garbs, braved the icy temperatures, breaking into the chant of Shichibongo (四智梵語). Shokaku starts off in a way similar to the chief abbot reciting a few stanzas before the other monks join in with their blended voices. Perhaps it is with all these experiences, and knowledge onkyara/agarwood that I’m beginning to revere the Shokaku as one of the best purekyara incenses I’ve ever burnt (personal preference!! does not apply to anyone else).

 If you have the fortune of owning any sticks of Shokaku, stow it away carefully and revisit it from time to time, perhaps you might find as much delight as I did."

    This incense takes me back to Kyoto last year burning Kyara at the Shoyeido store. An exquisite incense.

    Very simple

    If you want to enjoy this, you need to sample the "kyara skin" poweder first to get used to the smell or to learn the note, memorise this note before trying "Translucent". This incense is very simple and plain if you have not tried kyara before. There are musk, I think, and Kyara content. Very pricey but for something once in a life time. it is worth it
