Monocle Shoyeido Incense

€ 25,00
The gentle scent of Monocle Shoyeido Incense could be thought of as a travelling companion. Give it time on a busy day: fifteen minutes to bring it to flame and ash, fifteen minutes to let its smoke fill up a room; it brings clarity and purifies the air.

Monocle Shoyeido Incense is a spin on Shoyeido’s excellent, unadulterated Gen-roku incense. Gen-roku – which translates as ‘the origin of good fortune’, and refers to a golden age of Japanese culture during the 17th century – is a sandalwood-based incense with verdant undertones and the capacity to fill out a room without becoming...

Monocle Shoyeido Incense is a spin on Shoyeido’s excellent, unadulterated Gen-roku incense. Gen-roku – which translates as ‘the origin of good fortune’, and refers to a golden age of Japanese culture during the 17th century – is a sandalwood-based incense with verdant undertones and the capacity to fill out a room without becoming overwhelming. Shoyeido are know as one of Japan’s top incense producers, and have a reputation for producing incenses with unmatched skill and purity.

After having spent years documenting the art of stylish living, it was only a matter of time before Monocle turned their attention to domestic pleasures. Whether they’re working with craftsmen of rare and unusual excellence, like Kontex or Shoyeido, or designing their own elegant items, Monocle bring a passion for the beautiful. As retailers of Monocle in Amsterdam, we see Monocle crafting a link between the spirit modernist design: an interpretation of their global outlook that feels just right the presence of Monocle in the Netherlands. Monocle’s feel for finer things is applied to the smallest pleasures of everyday life – just the right amount of luxury.

From fledgling beginnings in London a decade ago, Monocle is now a cosmopolitain enterprise, with a decannual magazine, a 24-hour online radio show, press bureaux in six countries around the globe, and eight brick-and-mortar shops in six cities. Miscellaneous Store is the proud home of Monocle in the Netherlands. As the first retailer of Monocle in Amsterdam, we’re enormously pleased to have brought their range of notebooks, bags, carry cases, and carefully-made homewares to the Netherlands.


A tube of Monocle Shoyeido Incense contains twenty 70mm sticks; each of these burns for around twenty minutes. If you're in need of an incense holder, the Monocle Brass Incense Burner was designed for just this purpose. Monocle Shoyeido incense is made in Japan.

About Monocle

The voice at the heart of Monocle is gentle, but authoritative. Reading its print magazine, or listening to one of its radio bulletins, is like listening to a friend – perhaps one a little bit older and wiser – as they narrate their adventures around the world in search of the best in life. It speaks confidently on a number of topics: business, politics, urban architecture, the state of modern journalism, the pleasures of fine cooking, or the mechanics of a beautiful watch. They’re attentive to the physical and mental pleasures of life. It’s an approach that makes ears prick up.

They’ve certainly found no shortage of willing listeners. More than a decade after their beginnings as a print magazine, Monocle now boasts press bureaux in six cities, its own creative agency, a 24-hour online radio station, a formidable book-publishing partner in Gestalten, cafés in London and Tokyo, and brick-and-mortar stores around the globe. We are honoured to be the first to represent Monocle in Amsterdam through Miscellaneous’ De Clerqstraat store. We share a deep appreciation not just for life, but for a life lived well. Miscellaneous Store will be the primary home of Monocle in the Netherlands, stocking a range of Monocle notebooks, organisers, bags, wallets, and scents.
