100808. 2034hrs. Horikawa Coil Incense.

Earlier this year, I made a trip to Japan. Kyoto was one of the stops.

When I was walking along the streets near Kiyomizu Temple, this particular shop caught the attention of my sense of scent. Walked in and out a few times, trying to figure out what the smell was.

It is a scent called Horikawa: Aromatic wood, Knowledge, Camaraderie.

I like how the it calms me down. How relaxing it makes me feels.

Perfect preparing for bedtime.
