AKAFUJI - Home Fragrance Oil
South Wind, Clear Dawn
The sense collection from Kitchibe is a new type of fragrance that attempts to capture an entire aesthetic into a bottle.
Akafuji is inspired by "South Wind, Clear Dawn," created by Katsushika Hokkusai in 1820 and recognized as one of the most iconic images in Japanese art. Commonly known as Akafuji (Red Fuji), Hokusai offers a simplified image of Mt Fuji. The scene is one of late summer and the sun is gently rising from the horizon, casting a warm glow onto the side of the mountain. A sweet, gentle breeze is travelling across the land and for that single moment, everything is perfect.
Top notes: Bergamot, Eucalyptus
Middle notes: Lavender, Cardamon, Ginger, Jasmin
Base notes: Japanese Incense, Sandalwood, Amber, Vanilla
