(The following is an English translation of the column for Japanese customers.)
I'm Y from You You Ang.
How are you doing?
Time flies and the season of Obon (Obon is a traditional Japanese event to welcome the spirits of ancestors.) has come quickly.
I've heard from customers several times that "You You Ang's gifts are beautiful in color. I was happy when I received them because I didn't feel gloomy."
I was very happy to hear this.
To be honest, as it's a religious gift for funeral ceremony etc., I once thought "I should renew the color of packages". In particular, packages of Special selection incense stick for prayer and healing, Casablanca and Phalaenopsis orchids are not sober at all. But when I made this series, I had my own concept.
"If my mother passes away, with what kind of scent do I talk to my mother every day?"
What was clear were that my mother wouldn’t want me to be sad every day,
that my mother, who loved flowers, didn't look good in dark colors and didn't seem to be happy with it,
that she wouldn’t get older anymore, so I wanted to offer something beautiful,
and that I would like to fascinate my mother with a scent that was as close as possible to real flowers, and of course myself too.
I believe that scent provides indescribable healing and comfort.
Well, the new season has just begun.
Please take care of your health in this heat.
