The story behind the Royal Lotus Travel Scent burner
What could be more dazzling and inspirational than climbing the very roof of the world – the Himalayas?
Tibetan crafts from the various pagodas of Lhasa are historically inspired by Royal Tibetan Lotus, and it is here we too found a potent source of inspiration. Whether climbing the Himalayas, visiting ancient pagodas, or at home in one’s own urban pagoda – scent is essential.
In the soft and hazy glow of the dawn, the past comes into view: pagodas ahead…
The Asian penchant for scent and incense is renowned but there is nothing familiar about this unique burner. Burning incense is an ancient practice. Incense is commonly known to purify one’s space, be that your private quarters or temporary nook in the highest of high mountains.
Incense creates a tranquil mood. A fresh morning breeze carries the scent of luminous spice mix, of sweet smoke entwined with wood. Aromas such as cinnamon, clove, cassia and star anise were widely used as ingredients for incense among the aristocracy.
Certainly, one can realise enlightenment without it. Though the more you practice, the more you are going to encounter incense.
Daring modern travellers travel light: a backpack, tablet, leather-bound books and attar… but they are never without a scent burner. The decadent jade coloured Royal Tibetan Lotus Travel Incense Burner carries a variety of symbolic implications: of “purity” like Tibetan butter tea, of “pristine calmness” from the high mountains.
Filled with light and throwing about the space a divine mood, the surprise of this item never denatures. Progressively smooth and highly decorative, this is a burner perfect for enlivening any scene.
