Our Dirty Hinoki fragrances draws inspiration from the practice of Shinrin Yoku, or forest bathing, so we've sat down to speak with an expert on the topic.

This episode will give more insight into our Dirty Hinoki functional fragrance, designed to express the multisensory experience of clearing your mind and truly opening yourself up to the nature around you. You'll also get to dig deep into the practice and theory behind forest bathing from Ben, and hopefully get inspired to connect with nature on a deeper level yourself.
