L'Eau Sento

Cedar Leaves, Cumin Seeds, Cypress Wood, Yew Wood, Red Algae - A beautifully simple, light wood scent which evokes the super-fine, almost transparent forms of Japanese carpentry and lacquer. It is like the warm yellow light which passes through the finest skin of freshly planed wood.

Structure

This scent captures perfectly the aromatic haze which rises from a Japanese wooden chest as air escapes from the shadowed interior.
