Brand name : Bridge and Blend


Bridge and Blend brings you “Six in Sense,” an incense that is as faithful as possible to the 1000-year-old blends to experience the world of The Tale of Genji, in an easy-to-use, sustainable conscious package with 100% natural ingredients. Six different fragrances representing the Heian period are timeless fragrances packed with the seasons of Japan. “Six in Sense” translated as ‘Six Roots’ in Japanese, deriving from a Buddhist term that refers to the five senses; sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch, plus a sixth: consciousness. And to maintain these six “powers” which most of us are lucky enough to naturally possess – this process of purifying both the mind and body ​is called ‘the Six Roots Cleansing.’


Bridge and Blendは、1000年前の調合に可能な限り忠実に再現し、100%天然香原料で、使いやすく、サステナブルを意識したパッケージに収めて、源氏物語の世界を体感するお香「Six in Sense」をお届けします。平安時代を代表する6つのお香は日本の季節に詰られた、タイムレスな香りです。「Six in Sense」は仏教用語の「六根」に由来し、 六根の「根」は感じる力を意味し、眼(視覚)・耳(聴覚)・鼻(嗅覚)・舌(味覚)・身(触覚)の五感に意(意識)をまとめて六根と呼びます。 そして、これら 6 つの「力」 ー 心身を清らかな状態にすることを六根清浄と言います。
