The Premium Incense Mix Box - Backflow Cones

The Premium Backflow Mix Box | 手工倒流香样品装

The Kin Premium backflow incense collection is a curated range exclusively handmade in our studio. They were created after countless hours of research and trial into incense ingredients and recipes.

We finally developed a collection of backflow incense cones that not only have the striking backflow visual effect, but also smell great. Their quality is obvious from the burn time - while many backflow incense cones burn in as little as 5 minutes, our cones burn for up to 25 minutes.

A no-brainer way to sample our all natural, artisanal incense cones. See details of each of the 3 scents included below -


3.5 (h) x 1.3cm (at base) |1.4 (h) x 0.5 inches (at base)

5 cones each scent, 3 scents, total 15 cones

Each backflow incense cone is approx. 3 times the weight of an incense stick.

25min burn time/cone, 6+ hours for 15 cones

Please note that as every piece of incense is handmade, the size, shape and color will have irregularities depending on the batch. These are a part of the handmade process and not considered defects.

Over time, we may continue to tweak the blend as we are continually searching for better ingredients, and improvements to our processes.

Palace Rituals | 宫中香

This blend is derived from one of the various palace incense recipes recorded in History of Incense《香乘》. It has a base of sandalwood and aloeswood, a rich overlay of native Chinese roots and flowers, rounded off with musk grass and unguis odoratus – the powder of a marine shell dating back to Babylonian incense recipes.

Butterfly Interpretations | 蝴蝶香

Butterfly Interpretations is one of our favorite scents of the collection. As its name might suggest, the scent is sweet and enchanting, but substantiated with depth and warmth. There is the fluttering of the butterfly wings, and the complexity of the wilderness underneath the flying wings.

Main ingredients:Sandalwood, Frankincense, Chinese Spikenard, Figwort Root, Rhubarb, Acronychia, Black atractylodes rhizome, Clove, Charcoal, Nanmu

A Touch of Jupi | 橘皮装点

The sandalwood and aloeswood base is accented by the jupi (also known as chenpi in Chinese), aged tangerine peel. As it ages, the crisp, acidic flavor of the tangerine peel matures into a warm citrus scent, refreshing yet nourishing at the same time.

The Kin Premium Incense Collection

A Collection of Handmade, All Natural Incense

The Kin Premium Incense collection is a collection of premium incense exclusively hand-made in small scale studios. Part of the collection is from our own studio, the remainder is hand-selected from experienced Chinese artisans that we know and trust.

Like all of our products, the Premium Incense collection is rooted in thousands of years of traditional Chinese incense culture. Part of the collection closely follows traditional recipes from the archetypal Chinese incense book History of Incense《香乘》, written almost 500 years ago in the Yuan dynasty; these we call the Re-interpreted blends. Part of the collection are our own creations, using ingredients and blends with modern, non-Chinese influences – these we call the Imagined blends. There is also a focus on precious single scents like aloeswood (otherwise known as agarwood, oud or jinkoh) – these we call the Classic single scents.  

The Perfect Accompaniment for Daily Rituals

The Kin Premium Incense collection contains no artificial ingredients or enhancements. They are made from all natural, hand-selected ingredients, chosen because they were the absolute best we could find at reasonable prices.

The binding powder used is Indonesian nanmu powder, a wood-based binder popular in Chinese incense, and where the Japanese makko or tabu no ki powder derives from.

All of the Kin Premium Incense are carefully enclosed in Wutong wood boxes painted with traditional Chinese red ink. Wutong is a type of wood popular for storing incense in East Asia, due to its superior anti-mold and anti-moisture properties.

Indulge in a stick of natural incense, gift yourself a moment of calm.
