Hiroko's story behind the fragrance III | San: "San celebrates a day's beginning and a silent dawn. Memories of opening a huge wooden box with the distinctive aroma of hinoki and at the same moment, unwrapping a doll from beneath layers of thin paper. A distant memory of this moment approaches with a serene stillness."
Japanese artist Takahashi Hiroko studied at Tokyo University of the Arts, where she passionately mastered traditional crafts such as dyeing, weaving and engraving.
