Yusuzumi is Japanese for the evening cool or enjoying the cool of the evening after a hot summer’s day.
Japan's summers are notoriously stifling. During the evenings, the air cools down a bit and people relax while enjoying a reprieve from the sun and humidity. In rural Japan, one usually relaxes in a garden or on a veranda at the end of the day. Often, this is done wearing casual cotton kimono, or yukata, with a glass of iced barley tea in hand. Enveloped in a sense of serenity, one hopes to catch a soft summer breeze that hints of flowers, while listening to wind chimes that ring softly in the background.
Allow Yusuzumi to be your calming and refreshing end-cap to a long summer day. An exotic, feminine fragrance, Yusuzumi captures the scent of an evening garden breeze. Sweet orange, lemongrass, ylang ylang, jasmine, and spearmint cool and calm the body and mind and are also a restorative treatment for summertime skin.
This summer, let your soul and senses be swept away to Japan and experience the cooling beauty of Yusuzumi.
The Aromatic Body Wash will transform your shower into a fragrant, mood-shifting escape for the senses.

In Japan, bathing is done in two phases. The first step is to cleanse the body before proceeding into the bathtub to soak. Soaking and relaxing in the bath is just that - pure enjoyment. We suggest showering with Aromatic Body Wash before using any of our bath products, choosing a wash and soak from the same fragrance collection. This ritual will create an immersive, aromatic experience that will deepen the soul-soothing effects of your soak.
Pause, shut your eyes, and take a slow, deep breath. Read the story of the fragrance that is on the slip of rice paper tucked inside each box. Allow your soul and senses to be immersed in this experience.
For an aromatic shower experience, place a nickel-sized amount into your palm or our Open Weave Washcloth.Starting at the collarbone, massage into the skin while breathing deeply. Make your way down to the feet and back up again.
