Japan Collection

It’s strange to attempt to faithfully create a series of perfumes based on Japan, because simply, Japan has an equally strange relationship with perfume.
There is a rich history of scent being used in spiritual practices, namely the Shinto scent ceremony of kōdō , or "Way of Fragrance,” in which incense is appreciated and  contemplated, as the practice of fragrancing temples and homes is considered high art. Despite this, common usage of perfume has never taken hold.

In this style, we have recreated literal scent memories from my year there that wear like perfume.
