The shape of the cone is reminiscent of a lotus flower before it blooms this incense hints at the cultural significance of the lotus as Vietnam's national flower. We wanted to balance the floral scent of lotus and ylang ylang with strong East Asian woods and herbs like hinoki, ho wood, and eucalyptus. A soft and mellow aroma, truly reminiscent of spa culture in both Korea and Vietnam.
Ingredients: Make, Dark Sandalwood, White Oak, Mugwort, Passionflower, Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Hindi, Ho Wood, Lotus Flowers, Ylang Ylang Oil, Feature Flora Kabusecha Tea
Oud is a prized fragrant wood found in Vietnam, more expensive than gold. We paired the sweet and smoky out with rich spices like cassia cinnamon, which is also found in Vietnam. Nostalgic of Buddhist altars and temples, this incense also carries a hint of sandalwood, patchouli, and myrrh.
Ingredients: Handmade Korean Hanji Paper in 3 leaf shapes, Tinchures of Oud, Myrrh, Sandalwood, Spruce, Patchouli, Cassia Cinnamon

Her works recreate seemingly traditional rituals into fictionalized ceremonies with new age health trends and consecrating them. Her practice involves incense, historically used to measure time, as markers to reimagine new time structures for certain gestures. Her recent installation and digital works evolve from performances, attempting to replicate the visceral, and immortalizing it.
Hyungi currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA as tattooer, incense maker, bookbinder, designer, and runs BABOSHOP, a multi use space and studio.
