Awakening Vermilion Scented Candle 250g



Concealing Awakening

An awakening, realised by a path of ash-grey stones and crimson Torii gates. The comfort of gentle cedar wood bounds and spreads with the stimulation of carefully selected nutmeg and cumin. A fragrance like the sound of distant bells.

The thousand torii gates at Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine; crimson pillars that lead one to the place of the gods. A further torii gate is added each time the wish of visitor to the shrine comes true; there are currently more than 10,000 of them, and the number continues to grow. These crimson gates start from the entrance to the mountain, the site of the god’s advent, and continue unbroken to the summit, providing a gateway from this world to the spirit world of the gods. The entrance to awakening, bringing you to a place of the divine.
