WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

The store design fuses Western and Japanese elements. It is a small three-storey building, with two windows.

 

As you cross the Japanese garden decorated with a stone pavement and greenery, a tribute to the ancestral culture, you enter a world dedicated to the senses. The building houses the commercial area on the first floor, workshop area on the second and office on the third.

 

Stone, wood, tatami, brass and warm colours give the space a friendly, intimate atmosphere. The display furniture blends plain wood with flamboyant shades and bright essences. A sculpted tree trunk made from 550 candles, both large and small, establishes the essence of the store, as a shrine to fragrance.

At the back of the store, the perfumes are displayed higgledy-piggledy on the wall, explaining the story and the roots of the brand in a few souvenirs; another wall, encircled by a brass frame, is entirely composed of boxes covered in sheets of silk paper, the chromatic arrangement creating a striking tableau.

On the left, there is a wall made from raku, a plain and precious ceramic material that was invented by a 16th century potter for a Japanese tea ceremony master. Although plain in appearance, its expertise is precious, as each piece is unique.

 

Japanese style wrapping paper imaged after each of the scents is made by layering 3 sheets of thin paper like origami.
