hibi | small box - favourites back in + new scents!
Hyōgo is a Japanese prefecture in the Kansai region of the country’s main island, Honshu.
- 70% of Japan’s match production is in Hyōgo.
- incense blending is a traditional craft in Hyōgo
So the clever crew at hibi combined the two and created self lighting incense sticks!
Painstakingly trialed and refined over 3 years, hibi (meaning ‘days’) incorporates natural paper fibers, wax and charcoal into meticulously balanced incense powders, creating a strikable, matchless incense stick which burns safely resting on its own reusable custom pad without the need for a lighting device.
In additon to hibi's core collection are:
deep - three considered new fragrances which reach create mystery and luxury, with dry, woody and exotic aromatics reaching for something beyond the familiar.
garden - fragrances that invite us to an imaginary garden of blooming flowers, to find a moment of enveloping euphoria in everyday life.
This starter pack includes 8 hibi incense sticks, with one reusable burning pad.
