New fragrance experiences from Japan
What does "R fragrance" stand for?
RIN - 凛※ RICH RARE
Our perfumes are designed to communicate the truly enriched spirit of Japan ,
and the authentic Japanese elegance and sophistication.
※ Japanese word meaning “dignified”
BLACK OUDStar ingredient：OUD
Wabi-sabi is one of the Japanese traditional aesthetics, derived from the spirit of Zen. It is a world view centered on simplicity and modesty. Shutting out idle thoughts allows us to stay focused and devoted, and to sublimate living into art. Japanese traditional rock gardens with minimal embellishment reflect Zen spirit and show the essential quality of life and beauty.
The scent of Black Oud expresses the unique Japanese aesthetic in which the sense of translucence in the fluid brushstroke of Suiboku-ga (Japanese painting) co-exists with the elegant and solemn presence of aloeswood.

TEA BREAKStar ingredient：Shunran
The Meiji era (1868-1912) was the time in which Japan had opened its door to the world and absorbed the Western culture rapidly in a short time. The afternoon tea culture was also introduced then. The Japanese began to enjoy tea and fancy sweets while socializing at elegant westernized salons, and they became accustomed to have Earl Grey tea with lots of sugar.
FRESH CITRUS FLORAL
Middle Earl Gray Tea/ Darjeering Tea/ Rose
OPAL SILKStar ingredient：Frankincense
Opal Silk was inspired by opal gemstones and milky white silks that are soft and gentle to the skin.
Frankincense was equivalent to gold in value since ancient times, and it was brought to Japan in the Heian period (794-1185). The Japanese aristocrats of that time used to burn frankincense to scent their clothes and surrounding space.
Opals are developed deep inside the earth over millions of years, only a small number of which could be found in Japan. They are called “the stones of hope” and every single piece is different from each other. They’re truly fascinating gemstones.
This fragrance is a tribute to the uniqueness of all lives, and it is meant for those who seek inner peace and a gentle embrace.

‘Tsujigahana’ - Imaginary flowers blossomed only on kimonos with tie-dyeing.

The way it is worn both by male and female shows its nature of accepting all as they are.
