30 ml / 1 ml
The AIYOKU perfume was inspired by Alex Kerr's book "Lost Japan: Last Glimpse of Beautiful Japan" and its romantic, idealistic descriptions of Japan, which, as we learn, no longer exists, and which many of us still believe in.
Japan with its hills covered with tropical forests, undergrowth, moss on the bark of trees, the smell of a damp forest. Among these hills is a traditional wooden house made of Japanese cedar, infused with resins and aromatic essential oil. Some elements of this house are new, still fresh, others have darkened over time and their fragrance is mature, subtle. Situated in a valley among tall grasses, this house is built using the precision of matching shapes of the wooden ends, without the use of nails, blending in with, and being part of, the surrounding nature. The marshy area in its vicinity creates ideal conditions for cultivation.
The scent of the roots, combined with the scent of damp earth is intertwining with the scent of fresh wood and its surrounding moss. This is what AIYOKU appears as.
The perfume label was printed on cotton paper, black letterpress printing, where the gold frame indicates hot stamping. Both prints were made on more than a century old printing machines from the turn of the XX century. Our bottles come from the North of France, where the last factories in the world, outside of China, produce perfume bottles, made semi-manually.
The pouch added to the perfume, sewn and printed in Warsaw, 100% cotton, is tied with a cotton string without a nylon centre.
Natural perfumes, unlike synthetic perfumes, not only offer a much richer olfactory experience, but also, due to the content of natural essential oils, it renders aromatherapeutic sensations.
Our ‘parfum concentration’ of the perfumes stay on the skin for about 5 hours. All our perfumes are free of substances that enhance the fragrance, its durability and range. The natural fragrance stays in our personal space and is a discreet highlight of our personality.
They can be applied on both the skin and clothing.
Just like natural cosmetics, also natural perfumes can cause an allergic reaction to susceptible persons, when applied directly to the skin, especially that they are highly concentrated. If so, the solution is to use less or spray from a greater distance.
