Description
Courtiers in ancient China and Japan lived their lives wafted to and fro on clouds of fragrant incense. In this class, we'll discuss how these incense blends were made and used, explore the exotic ingredients that went into them, and "listen" to the fragrance of some of these recreated varieties. NOTE, strong smells will be in this room. Not recommended for people with asthma, breathing issues or sensitivity to scents.
