A Japanese Love Affair
The intoxicating scent of Hinoki, Japanese cypress
Our love affair with Japan is long and deep at Placewares. Hinoki has become somewhat of a house scent in our home as it reminds us of incredible trips spent traveling through Japan and experiencing its splendors.
The smell of Hinoki otherworldly. It is calming like when one walks through a crisp and fragrant woods. It is complex, yet simply; woodsy, yet bright and above all never overpowering.
