Glasshouse Fragrance’s new Limited Edition, A Moment In Tokyo Soy Candle was inspired by the captivating duality of Japan’s buzzy capital. In no other city can you find ancient wooden temples fragranced with half a millennia worth of holy incense smoke juxtaposed against neon-lit skyscrapers and whimsical manga girls. Tokyo’s eclectic streets are where tradition melds seamlessly with the ultramodern creating something entirely new. Spirited and dynamic, this intriguing scent captures an exciting, artistic allure we’re calling Digital Shibori.
Where historic meets modern
So, what does it smell like? Imagine stepping off a busy Tokyo shopping street, bright lights twinkling in your eyes. Before you see the temple, you sense it. A window back in time—a reminder of a bygone era. Swirls of incense drift overhead as you walk towards the imposing structure. Walking in, an explosion of rose petals and violets mingle with the sweet smell of birch and aged leather. Sensual but decidedly unisex, it’s an olfactory imagining of a place where modern-day meets the past. A winter scent through and through, it’s mesmerising.
The regal glass vessel is washed with a deep indigo that melds into vibrant shades of aqua and teal in a contemporary take on the Japanese art of shibori (a traditional technique used to dye textiles with patterns). When lit, the flame appears to hypnotically dance inside the dark glass, creating instant drama in any space.
Inspired by the Japanese art of shibori, the glass vessel is rendered in deep indigo swirled with aqua and teal.
