Nha Trang Aloeswood ｜ 芽庄沉香 「Classic Single Scent」
Vietnam’s Nha Trang region is highly regarded for its superior quality aloeswood, with the Nha Trang aloeswood being the most famous of the Hui’an aloeswood family. Also known as agarwood, jinkoh in Japanese, and oud in Arabic, aloeswood is a classic scent worldwide, and has been revered in Chinese incense culture since the opening of the silk road.
Our Nha Trang aloeswood incense comes from a highly experienced, second generation Chinese incense craftsman. The quality of the raw ingredients is meticulously controlled, as aloeswood pieces are carefully selected and then hand ground into powder in his studio.
The final hand-made incense sticks are the best we’ve ever smelt without breaking the bank – a warm, complex scent that is milky with a touch of cool, radiating from the stick almost as soon as it is lit.
Due to the very high cost of aloeswood, Nha Trang aloeswood is only available in stick form. These are also slightly thinner than other incense sticks in our Premium Collection.
Nha Trang Aloeswood is part of the Kin Premium Collection, a collection of incense exclusively hand-made in small scale studios including our own. All incense in the Premium incense collection are enclosed in Wutong wood boxes painted with traditional Chinese red ink.
