- Additional Information
Scented Candle One: Hinoki by Comme des Garcons.
Hinoki takes its name from the hinoki cypress, a tree that only grows in Japan and is the preferred wood for building palaces, temples, shrines and the finest wooden soaking baths. It was inspired by a visit to Tawaraya, a famous three-centuries-old traditional Japanese inn located in Kyoto. Soaking in the legendary open-air hinoki ofuro(wooden bath) filled with warm spring water on a chilly morning, the idea for the perfume was born. The scent is incredibly beautiful, the rich scent of wood, surrounded by greenery and subdued incense. This scent is considered to be one of the ten cult fragrances.
Notes: Cypress, turpentine, camphor, cedar, thyme, pine, Georgian wood, frankincense, moss and vetiver.
