Shoyeido / 12 months (quick comments)

I’m surprised this incense series doesn’t show up in every incense supplier’s catalog, as I’m very impressed with what I’ve sampled so far – surely this makes a fine companion to the Horin line. I’m up through July and liked every single one, although May and July were my favorites. At the very least these are rather high end sandalwood blends with unique and complex notes, all attempting to capture the nuance of a calendar month. For example January is icy cool, where May is musky and starting to swelter. Can’t wait to get used to some of these.
