Agarwood,Ambrette,Black pepper


Jinkoh expresses the mysterious and profound "agarwood" fragrance, which is based on the deep and heartfelt sense of gravity peculiar to aromatic wood, co-existing with a floating sensation like a delicate veil shimmering in the air, which is the exact opposite of the feel of gravity.

"The name of our project, √595, derives from the year 595, when agarwood is said to have drifted to Japan.
Agarwood/Jinkoh is an aromatic wood (fragrance extracted from trees), in this case an evergreen tree belonging to the genus Acularia of the family Zingiberaceae. Normally, this plant does not produce resin, but it seems that resin is produced accidentally when the plant is injured, but the mechanism has not yet been elucidated.

There are hundreds of types of fragrant woods if we go by name alone. In the world of aromatic woods, fragrant woods are classified according to their place of origin: Kyara, Rakoku, Manaban, Manaka, Sasora, Sumotara. The aromas are further classified into five tastes: sweet, sour, spicy, bitter, and salty, and the six countries and five types of tastes are combined to classify them.

The effects and benefits of fragrance are described in a Chinese poem titled "The Ten Virtues of Fragrance" written by Huang Tingjian, a poet in the Northern Song Dynasty of China, which stretched from 960 to 1127.
In Japan, it was introduced by Zen monk Ikkyu, later famous for his stories and cartoons, and the benefits of incense described in this poem are also relevant to our modern sensibilities.

When we trace the history of agarwood, we find that there are many references to the quality of the fragrance and its efficacy, but many of the descriptions of the fragrance seem to be ambiguous. This may be partly due to the fact that it is difficult to use a common language to describe fragrances, which cannot be captured visually.


We have added one interpretation to the word "fragrance” for this project. It is to capture the form of fragrance by adding visual color, brightness, and tactile textures such as softness and smoothness to the fragrance. Jinkoh expresses the mysterious and profound "agarwood" fragrance, which is based on the deep and heartfelt sense of gravity peculiar to aromatic wood, co-existing with a floating sensation like a delicate veil shimmering in the air, which is the exact opposite of the feel of gravity. Through the process of replacing the invisible fragrance with a sense of experience and reconstructing the subdivisions of it, we have reproduced the ideal "Jinkoh" fragrance in this incense."
