Zen is inspired by the allure of blending tradition and modernity. Just like Japanese ikebana (flower arranging) and kimono, new and modern works of art are always being born. The source of that energy is behind the expression of Zen, bringing out liberated sensation, the vibration of one’s own feelings, and the vibrant seductiveness of unfettered movement.

The fragrance projects the essence of a modern woman – drawing the truth from her inner reaches on a breath of floral freshness, layered with amber and wood. Created with stress relieving aromachological ingredients, the fragrance invites you to ignite the soul of Zen and let your own passionate nature burst free.

The logo was Inspired by the passionate brushstrokes of Japanese calligraphy. It evokes the movement, the power and the humanity of an artistically interpreted kanji characters. The moment of its creation – the moment that the hand , the ink and the paper share a common force of energy – that is the moment of Zen.

The bottle contains the elegance of a tea room – exquisite in its simplicity and sensual in its restrained, yet glowing form. The gold color reflects sunlight, the treasure of the earth, and the element of richness and warmth.

Zen awakens from its traditional stillness. Full of energy. Full of life. Full of sensuality. This life force presents a new incarnation of Zen.
