Hinoki Scented Candle

Japanese cypress fragrance candle

US$ 167

If you have ever visited a Japanese hot spring, you know hinoki: it is the wood used for classic bathtubs and the flooring around them. And if you have even seen a performance of Noh theater, it's the wood the stage is made of. And the wood used in shrines. And castles. And pretty much everything that says "high quality" in Japan. So what you get with the Hinoki Scented Candle is literally the fragrance of classic Japanese culture - with a little geranium, iris, and sandalwood added to make give it an earthier aroma.

And it isn't just the candle itself (though this will give your space an amazing aroma for about 58 hours): the container the Hinoki Scented Candle comes in is also made of porcelain made in Saga Prefecture in the local Aritayaki style, one of the most famous types of Japanese pottery that has been around since the early 17th century. So between a classic piece of porcelain and a classic scent, this is an incredible combination for any lover of Japanese aesthetics. Oh, and it smells great too!
