The stone garden at Ryoan-ji Temple; a Japanese garden that epitomizes the world of Zen. This Zen garden isn’t for enjoying the scenery but for allowing quiet, soothing meditation. It features a placement of a total of 15 stones of various sizes, in groups of 5, 2, 3, 2 and 3 starting from the east side, all surrounded by raked sand. Many of the profound mysteries surrounding the garden still entice debate today, such as the stones being placed so that one of them is always hidden no matter the angle from which the garden is observed, and the river-like flow created by the placement of stones, sand and moss.
MADE IN JAPAN
TOBALI was inspired by the most famous story of perfume in Japan: that of Emperor Ninmyō (810-850) who is said to have created the Jōwano Onimashime, an extraordinary incense fragrance.
To reveal the hidden beauty of Japan, the perfume house has recreated this essence by modernizing it and uses it as the heart of the fragrance of its contemporary creations. The woody, powdery and flowery olfactory universes that hide this extraordinary juice are inspired by famous Japanese characters and sacred places that embody hidden beauty.
