Bikou Kobunboku Incense (Approx 180 Sticks)
Baieido says: Bikou means : "Delicate incense" Bikou Kobunboku is a subtler version of the traditional Kobunboku formula. Very soft and fresh, with just a hint of cassia and other Chinese herbs with both sandalwood and aloeswood.
Bikou comes in two types, regular and less-smoke. Smoother and softer is the way we describe this Kobunboku formula.
