This incense line is inspired by the first novel in the world: Genji monogatari.
The legendary 'Story of Genji' is one of the cultural milestones in world history. Written by Lady Murasaki in the early 11th century as entertainment for Empress Akiko, this 1,000-year-old masterpiece is a literary record breaker:
the world's first real novel
the first psychological novel
the first historical novel
The story gives a glimpse into Japan 1000 years ago. The Genji line from Shoyeido gives shape to the scenes and beautiful storytelling from Genji Monogatari through subtle scents.
