HAKUDO offers you a quiet moment to unwind in everyday life. It keeps the space around you purified through 11 botanical essences that work in synergy: Hiba wood, Oakmoss, Amyris, Copaiba, Vetiver, Elemi, Yuzu, Green Oregano, Palmarosa, Ajowan and Cypress.
The scent of HAKUDO is inspired by the invisible layers of the mountain ground, earthy & green - velvety moss, soils that are rich in organic materials, and by roots which distribute their lives deep underground. Its scent profile offers a dark and rich impression, dry & moist temperaments and a hint of smokiness in the background.
Based on a philosophy derived from KOHDO, the Japanese ceremony of appreciating a subtle & exquisite fragrance, ‘listening’ to the scent allows your senses to be infused and to experience it with your entire being. It invites you to take a deep breath, to prepare yourself for the day, and to feel a sense of tranquility in the evening.
THE HAKUDO CANDLE HASAMI PORCELAIN EDITION is created with a manganese saturated oil spot glaze. The temperature of the kiln decides the characteristic of irregular metallic shades and patterns of the surface, which gives each cup a very unique texture and personality. Its presence resonates with deep & smoky qualities of the HAKUDO essence and together they create a clear and tranquil mood.
The YUNOMI cup with matching lid has been traditionally used in Japan to welcome guests and express gratitude when serving tea.
