Hanami. The traditional Japanese custom of delighting in the transient beauty of sakura or widely known as cherry blossoms. Apart from depicting a beautiful herald of the turn of the season, it’s also a great mnemonic of a remarkably joyful and peaceful life.
When everything seems bleak and our psyche feels frail, nothing can soothe us from within better than conjuring our inner zen, taking a few deep breaths, and caving into mental repose. And the vivid imagery of fleeting cherry blossoms in full bloom reminds us that no matter how overwhelming our situation is, good things still thrive and prevail.
Take a quick break from the bustles of the society; close your eyes as we take you on a journey to Japan’s time-honored traditions, its well-loved spots, and delicious treats with our new Sakura Blossom Festival Collection.
Optimism and Renewal: The Sakura Blossom Festival Collection
The Sakura Blossom Festival Collection accentuates how Japanese culture champions optimism, intricate beauty, peace, and renewal through sakura matsuri or cherry blossom festivals.
It boasts four new and complex spring fragrances housed in Yankee Candle Signature vessels with artisanal hand-illustrated labels.
Sitting under the blooming cherry trees, enjoy a sweet bouquet of rose and freesia during the Sakura Blossom Festival.
Enjoy the fresh mountain air and a cool breeze off the water—carrying dewy pear and coconut water notes—as you gaze upon the iconic mountain backdrop to the cherry blossoms.
Enjoy a refreshing treat of juicy, sliced mango and vanilla cream during a picnic party under the cherry blossoms.
The perfect end to a day of celebration – sake infused with the delicate sweetness of plum finished with raspberries.
