Rhys, perfume blogger forThe Scent of Man, gives Satori a 9.75/10 rating:
"The rich undertones of frankincense and sandalwood fortifies the base notes of this unisex perfume, lingering closely to the skin while projecting a wave of cosiness and serenity. I love how Satori stays close to the skin, giving my friends an element of surprise when I embrace them. I humbly applaud the perfumer for incorporating various Japanese elements and techniques into creating this fragrance and making an effort revitalizing the use of fragrant wood in today’s context once again. Rating: 9.75/10."
About the Chatsubo
This Chatsubo is decorated with Ume, plum blossom. The scent of Ume signals the coming of Spring. The design of the plum blossom can often be found in classic Japanese art and decorations and one can often find it in the coat of arms of old Japanese families.
Tea was very costly in the 17th Century and was therefore kept safe and secure in special vessels. Once a year these vessels were carried from Kyoto to Edo in a special procession in order to serve tea to the generals of the Tokugawa Family. Satori's porcelain Chatsubo was inspired by this tradition and decorated with the Ume.
The knots (Kumihimo in Japanese) are a form of traditional Japanese art. Each knot has it's own special meaning, and the ones on the front of the chatsubo are called âShin (formal) and the ones on the left are called âSohâ (informal)
Every Chatsubo comes in a special wooden box made of Paulownia wood, as has been the tradition for over 2000 years. Each box has been decorated by hand and contains soft cotton cloth dyed in kurkuma, to protect the procelain Chatsubo.
Finally, the box is sealed by a Sanadahimo, a traditional Japanese samurai ribbon, used for special ceremonies and occasions to protect valuable objects.
