Villa Medicis Incense
Incense Villa Medicis by Astier de Villatte“Along the length of the artists’ workshops, with their large windows opening over the rooftops of Rome, run the majestic gardens of the Villa. A centre for encounters and for meditation, the residents delight in the subtle fragrances of lemon tree leaves, lavender and oregano flowers. The air thrills with the woody aroma of the tall cedars nearby, and the inexpressible fragrance of the ancient stones in the heat of the sun.”
Each box contains 125 sticks with a burning time of 30 minutes each.
How is Astier de Villatte incense made?
It is in Awaji, off Kobe, because of its favorable climate, that the best incense on the planet is made. According to a tradition of more than a thousand years which is transmitted from father to son, they are made in an artisanal way by the Koh-shis or masters of aromas. They alone perfectly master the four stages of production: dosage of exclusively natural materials, precious woods, herbs and plants, vegetable resins, perfume. Kneading the dough, pressed and worked for a long time, then left to stand for two weeks to soak up the fragrance. Cut this dough rolled by hand into long and narrow ribbons to the desired size. Drying in the west wind for three days then bundling the sticks. This is all the magic of Astier de Villatte incense.
