L'Apres Midi Incense
L’après Midi articulates the sense of calm and warmth conveyed by Claude Debussy’s symphony Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun*. The earthy vapours of sawdust and resinous notes of cypress harmoniously impersonate the animalic grace of the faun.The box holds approximatively 50 incense sticks of impeccable quality, made on the Island of Awaji in Japan. Each sticks burns for 25 mins.
