The KITCHIBE project combines Japanese craftsmanship, organic design and iconic scents.
Six fragrances inspired by four seasons, culture, and lifestyle in Japan:
SAKURA, WASHI, MATCHA, YUKI, KITCHIBE and YUZU.
A fragrance inspired by hanami, the traditional Japanese custom of viewing cherry blossoms in early spring. Japanese cherry blossoms last for a mere two weeks, and this seasonal motif has become one of Japan’s most symbolic aesthetics. Japanese people find beauty in the flowers’ short life, from the budding of the first blossom to the fallen petals dancing in the air. The sakura fragrance is inspired by the Oshima-sakura, a variety with a particularly vivid scent.
Top notes : Ozone breeze
Middle notes : Oshima sakura, Rose, Muguet
Last notes : Warm wood
This fragrance evokes an image of freshly hand-crafted Japanese washi paper from a traditional mill nestled deep in the mountains with cedar forest all around. Washi paper is a traditional craft made from pure water and plant fibers. Thin enough to see the scenery through, with a soft, matte texture and a natural feel, washi paper conveys a sense of calm.
Top notes : Leather, Cardamom
Middle notes : Geranium, Ylang ylang, Orris
Last notes : Hinoki, Cedarwood
This fragrance evokes an image of a quiet tearoom secluded by dense bamboo forest. In Japanese tea ceremony, several guests sit on tatami mats while a tea master prepares matcha, a special frothy type of green tea, for them. The dry rustling of bamboo stalks outside such teahouses adds to the sense of peace and serenity created by the ceremony. This fragrance will make you imagine the warm steam from the kama kettle and the fresh, green aroma of the tea as it is whipped with a whisk, mingled with the scent of the tatami mats.
