An aromatic tour of the East….
A rich aromatic combination of precious woods, resins and spices. It is made up of of 3 types of fine Japanese granulated incense , including the renown “She-un, Purple Cloud”, Tokusen powder, ground Agarwood from Thailand, Highest quality heartwood Sandalwood Granules, and ground Green Frankincense.
You can use Eastern Intrigue on the Golden Lotus first and then burn the remaining wood on a Japanese charcoal. My personal preference is to use it first on quality charcoal to bring out the deep beautiful agarwood and sandalwood notes - either way it is an excellent incense with quality ingredients.
9 grams come in an amber glass jar with 2 tablets of Japanese charcoal in a tangerine pouch.
The name Eastern intrigue came from song by Todd Rundgren I always loved…
“As the sun rises in the east
As the wind blows the fog across the sea
As the hand of Man creeps across the face of the world
Caught in a web of glamours
Persian perfume and oriental eyes
Yogi in knots and Sufi wise
Master sublime and swami high
Through in some Voodoo on the side
And a dash of the old Kung Fu
Lord you got me strung out on eastern intrigue.
On the banks of the Holy Nile
As the palm tree sways at the base of the sphinx
'Neath a crescent desert moon many thousands
younger than ours
In fact, forget about time completely
Think of it in the abstract please
Think of the swaying tropic trees
One of your many destinies
Like having a hot peyote tea
In the palace of Fu Manchu
Lord you got me strung out on eastern intrigue”
