Essential Oil of Sugi (Cryptomeria Japonica) is 100% pure and natural and came from Japon.

In the very south of Japan, there is a small island called Yakushima. It is famous for being home to some of the oldest trees in the world, the Yakusugi, which are the pride of the country. It is here that talented growers have decided to enhance the value of their land by growing seeds of these same varieties of trees. Once mature, they release them from their leaves to recover their richness, an essential oil with a cedar, dry and definitely woody fragrance.

The essential oil of Sugi is known to be insecticide and larvicide, it would also be antibacterial in diffusion. A real asset to chase away insects of all kinds from your home. In addition, it is attributed relaxing virtues.



The nuances of this singular woody note make it a classy asset for the perfumer. Reminiscent of the Oud family of scents due to its unavoidable pyrogenic character, Sugi evokes the warmth of the hearth while the cold rages outside. Enveloping smoke and subtle gourmand accents make this fragrance a sure bet to accompany the wake of a soothing and purifying scent.
