Golden Pavilion (also called Kin-kaku) was inspired decades ago by the luminous reflection of Kyoto's Golden Temple — Kinkaku-ji on the Kyokk-chi Pond's placid waters. An earthy, evocative fragrance, it continues to be one of Shoyeido's best selling creations.
I have to add a personal note here - I used to hate incense with a passion reserved for very few things. My dislike was intesified by the fact that I always got nasty migraine headaches from the incense that I had tried to that point. Shoyeido made a complete convert out of me, and now I adore their incense. Shoyeido is the only incense I have ever tried that does not give me headaches or provoke extreme revulsion on my part; quite the contrary, I burn it very regularly. I can only put this down to Shoyeido's honestly representing the purity of their ingredients and their committment to use of real ingredients and avoidance of chemical scents in their incense.
