Traditionally used for court ceremonies and meditation, incense is an integral part of Japanese identity. The Sonoran Desert Series takes inspiration from the North American landscape, combining an ancient Eastern tradition with an unequivocally American character. The sturdy ironwood tree is indigenous to the Sonoran Desert. Bright notes of oud and tobacco balance out this warm, soothing scent.

HOW TO USE
Light the tip of the incense until a flame is established. Allow it to burn for a few seconds to ensure it is properly lit. Then, gently extinguish by blowing or fanning out the flame. Your stick should glow red and a gentle wisp of smoke should be seen.
Tennen is a multidisciplinary architectural firm based in Phoenix, USA, founded by Ethan and Sarah Swartz Wessel in 2001. Dissatisfied with the lack of beautiful and functional incense burners, they decided to create their own, designed to prevent the nub of the incense from sticking to the vessel after burning. From buildings to aromas, their design projects pursue aesthetic simplicity inspired by the culture and design sensibilities of Japan - natural light, seasonal rhythms, minimalism, and the inherent physical and sensual qualities of materials.
