Mt. Akagi seen from our office has become a bleak winter scene. It will soon be Christmas. I'm a little excited. There are only two weeks left in this year. It will be the end of the year in a blink of an eye. I have to do some major cleaning at the office and at home.
I have new subscriptions just in time for the end of the year: petit subscriptions for only three months, based on three different themes. From left to right, blue is "Scent of Forest and Sea," red is "Scent of Flowers and Fruits," and green is "Scent of Fragrant Woods and Herbs.
※Subscriptions are only available in Japan.
When placed on a bookshelf, it really looks like a book. Inside, in each box there are two types of incense that match the theme, and an illustrated instruction manual. I created this series because I want people who are unfamiliar with incense to feel that "life with scent" is a good thing. This is an online shop limited product due to subscription.
Last week, we took videos to be uploaded to youtube and instagram, including these subscriptions. I decided on a theme and took a number of scenes of daily use of each incense, making use of the image of the scent that each incense has.
This is an image of "Indulgence in Reading". It's a picture of me quietly enjoying my world on a holiday afternoon with a book in my hand for the first time in a while. I like the feeling of "light shining through the window" in this photo.
I'll gradually upload more pictures in the new year, so I'd be happy if you could take a look at them
Thank you very much for your support over the past year.
And thank you for your continued support next year.
It's a busy end of the year, but please take care of yourself.
