Nippon Kodo are offering sampler packs of their higher end aloeswood lines, expiring on September 18th, although I don’t see a sampler pack for Tokusen Kyara Kayou, the highest end NK kyara I’ve seen for sale in the US. There’s also a small package of Kyara Taikan I haven’t seen before. This should be a neat opportunity to check out two scents that seem remarkably uncommon in the US and perhaps give us more of a taste of what NK can do with aloeswoods, as their company has always been light on the high enders here. The scents higher (in price and quality) than Kyara Taikan rarely ever make the boutique shops, so this will be one of your rare chances for a sample. The samples look to be in the same inner packaging the Yume no Yume series uses. As an example in price differential, the Gokuhin Kyara Taikan is about $0.413 per inch in the usual box where it’s about $0.792 per inch in the sampler.
