Notes: golden sandalwood incense, rice milk, bright cardamom, amber, dry wheat, and sunflowers
Amaterasu is the Shinto goddess of the sun and the universe, and the mythical ancestress of the Imperial House of Japan. She illuminates all things and oversees the movement of day into night, representing order and purity, two of the most important concepts of Shinto. Once, Amaterasu abandoned the world to hide in the Cave of Heaven, and to trick her into returning, the other gods created music and dance to tempt her out, returning light to the world.
An opening of bright cardamom gives way to a delightful blend of golden sandalwood and creamy rice milk. Rich amber and the nutty, grassy scent of dried wheat create a soft base, while a sunflower accord uplifts with its lightly floral, citrusy, herbal, hay-like notes. Comforting, balanced, and unique — this is sure to be a new favorite!
