Tucson Incense

DESCRIPTION

Tucson Incense by celebrated French ceramic house, Astier de Villatte. Planted in the Arizona desert, surrounded by giant cactuses with amazing shapes, stands Tucson. Wander downtown, along streets lined by colourful houses. Crushed by the heat, take a break in the shadow of a mesquite, watered by a little glass of mezcal. Intoxicating scents of the Far West float in the air: lightly smokey and sweet aromas of wild grasses, parched wood, immortelle flowers, and red earth, burnt by the sun.

Scent family - Woody.

Notes: Wild grass, dry-woods, immortelle flowers, and earth.

All natural fragrance incense.

Each box contains approx 125 sticks, each with a burn time of 30 minutes.

Incense sticks are handmade in Japan. Comes in a beautiful box each with a label handprinted in France.

DETAILS

  • Thanks to its favourable climate, the best incense in the world comes from Awaji. Just off the coast of Kobe. The Koh-Shis, masters of scent, make incense in line with a thousand year old tradition that is handed down from father to son. They alone master the four production stages. First, the all-natural ingredients are prepared and mixed: exotic woods, plants and herbs, vegetable resin and perfume. Then the paste is kneaded, squeezed and shaped before being left to dry in the west wind for three days before being gathered into bundles.

ABOUT the MAKER

Astier de Villatte

Astier de Villatte ceramics are handmade in their Parisian workshops. Each piece is unique, as a result of manual work and the natural method of drying. The white enamel allows an irregular glimpse of the brown clay underneath.

The production of ceramic objects is a long and delicate process. Each piece is entirely made by one craftsperson. In fact, you can find engraved on each piece the initials of Astier de Villatte and of the craftsperson who made it.
