One of the classical Japanese arts of refinement is Kodo, or the way of aroma, which originated from the culture of incense. In Kodo, it is believed that scents made of the highest quality can purify and awaken the spirit, heal loneliness, and bring calm to turbulent times.
Our custom-blended perfume oils are created with the same philosophy. Specially crafted by Japanese perfume artisans for DAMDAM, these are made to trigger olfactory pleasures and help release mental burdens.
