Porte des Lilas - Incense Box (120 sticks)
A dream of times past: next stop, Porte des Lilas.

One is enraptured by the delicious and verdant fragrances, mixed here and there with puffs of rose and jasmine.

The kneading of the paste, which is pressed and worked for lengthy periods of time, then laid out to rest for two weeks to fully absorb of the perfumes. The cutting of the paste into lengthy ribbons, rolled by hand, then left to dry in a West Wind for three days, before binding them in sheaves.
