It was considered an expression of sensitivity and refinement adapted to everyday life whether to perfume the house in preparation for a guest or to provide a specific atmosphere. Japanese incense is a perfect expression of the olfactory culture of a people and the expertise of its incense manufacturing houses on a secular level.
