La Chouette Japanese Hand Soaps

By Weekender Editor

Combining traditional Japanese scents with gentle ingredients, a new range of beautifully packaged liquid hand soaps by Tokyo-based company La Chouette adds a stylish element to any home. Launched in June 2018, the three new soaps – Sumi, Yuzu, and Igusa – are released under the company’s Olupono + Plus Zen Collection. Olupono is a combination of the Hawaiian words “olu olu” (comfortable) and “ho oponopono” (happiness).

As for the different scents, Sumi offers a mystical Eastern fragrance that’s a combination of musk and borneol; Yuzu emulates the fresh citrusy fragrance of the Japanese fruit of the same name, which is a popular ingredient in local dishes and cosmetics; while Igusa is reminiscent of earthy tatami, transporting you to open grass plains and clear blue skies. Aside from their elegant fragrances, one of the most delightful elements is discovered when you hold up the see-through bottle and notice the traditional Japanese pattern visible through the liquid. Perfect for gifts and Japanese souvenirs.

How Much: ¥2,600 (excl. tax) per 300ml bottle
