HA KO Paper Incense - Autumn, Osmanthus
A fragrant maple leaf carries the scent of sweet osmanthus - one akin to newly picked peaches, and an annual sign of the changing seasons in southern Japan.
An individually packaged HA KO leaf is the perfect introduction to this new form of incense, which was developed over the course of five years by one of Japan’s oldest incense makers. Made from Japanese washi paper and shaped into delicate leaf forms, each leaf can be used as subtle potpourri, giving off fragrance for up to three months, or as incense that burns for approximately seven minutes while cleansing and deodorizing an area.
Place one on a desk, in a car, near an entryway, or anywhere a touch of fragrance is desired. HA KO Paper Incense also makes a unique gift for friends and family; the leaves are easy to slip inside a card, and they make a lovely adornment for a wrapped gift.

Do not allow to burn unsupervised. Avoid placing in drafty areas or near any flammable materials. Note that direct sunlight can cause discoloration.
