Rikkoku Set - Six Countries
The traditional Japanese classification of Aloeswood
Rikkoku literally translates as the "Six Countries of Aloeswood". This Rikkoku Set represents the "Six Countries" of aloeswood
as personally selected over twenty years ago by the Headmaster
of the Suifu-ryu Kodo School in Kyushu, Japan.
Within each classification of the aloeswood is a quality (taste) used to classify the aloeswood aroma:
the smell of honey or concentrated sugar.
the smell of plums or other acidic foods.
the smell of red peppers when put in a fire.
the smell of a towel after wiping perspiration from the brow
or the lingering smell of ocean water when seaweed
is dried on a fire.
the smell of bitter herbal medicine when it is mixed or boiled.
