The scent of Hakudo is inspired by the invisible layers of the mountain ground - the earthy and green-velvety moss, the soils that are rich in organic material, and the roots that distribute their lives deep beneath. Its profile offers dark and rich impression, dry and moist temperament with a hint of smokiness in the background.
This Hasami Porcelain Edition is created in a porcelain with a manganese saturated oil spot glaze. The temperature of the kiln decides the characteristic of irregular metallic shades and patterns of the surface, which gives each cup a very unique texture and personality. Its presence resonates with deep and smokey qualities of the Hakudo scent that also evokes various textures of earth and nature, and together they create a clear and tranquil mood.
Each candle comes in a Paulownia wooden box, tailor-made and individually assembled by the hands of a master craftsman in Japan. The precious wood of Paulownia imperialis has been traditionally used to store acclaimed art objects and antiquities and here it will serve this purpose again. You will enjoy the transcending quality of the Hakudo scent and this special Hasami porcelain cup over a long time.
