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.
Treat the skin of your body with the same level of care and respect with which you treat your face.
