The enchanting Peony enjoyed enormous popularity in Edo. Its bewitching form is reminiscent of a beautiful geisha, and gazing upon a peony you can almost hear the music and see the dances of the geisha quarter. This was an exclusive world for the privileged few, and it is said that customers’ time spent in teahouses was measured by sticks of incense. The fragrance of the peony, “queen of the flowers” evokes this beautiful and evanescent world.
Each incense includes an incense holder that resembles the stone pavements of Edo. Tin was a favored metal by the upper class during the Edo period. The tin incense stand included in the package can be washed with water and will last for a long time.
