KARESANSUI - Home Fragrance Oil
A Carefully Composed Arrangement
The sense collection from Kitchibe is a new type of fragrance that attempts to capture an entire aesthetic into a bottle.
Karesansui is inspired by the Japanese Zen rock garden. Translated as "dry landscape," these gardens are intended to express the magnificence of nature through carefully composed arrangements of rocks and sand that is raked to represent ripples in water. By minimizing and simplifying the elements, the garden maximizes viewers imagination and serves as an aid to meditation about the true meaning of existence.
