The first in this series of stunning pure herbal incenses is Mogao, so named after a complex of ancient art filled Buddhist caves, situated at a crossroads of trade, cultural and intellectual influences in the Gansu province of Western China. This vibrant blend of plant components bursts with the energy of earthy angelica root at the base. A refreshing breeze of Korean mint with honeyed heart notes of liquidambar formosana further resonate in inspirational harmony. Mogao is a creative, reviving fragrance, which is sweet and delicious.
