What is Sakura? Sakura is the Japanese name for the cherry blossom, and is the country’s national flower. Sakura has great significance to the people of Japan for many reasons. The cherry blossoms are one of the first signs of spring, signaling the end of the cold months with their bright, pink petals. The entire blossoming process happens quickly as well, aligning with the concept of impermanence which is central to Buddhism- the flower’s short lifespan is a reminder that our own lives are also fleeting. The fallen petals of the Sakura are also said to be symbolic of the noble samurai, who laid down their lives for Japan and the emperor without fear of death. Since roughly 700 AD, in the spring the Japanese people gather to bask in the blossoming Sakuras in a custom known as Hanami, which translates to “flower viewing”. It is a celebration where people come together to eat, drink, and celebrate the beauty and impermanence of life.

**Due to the size of the candle tins, we do not recommend burning them for more than 2 hours in a single session.

Nice smelling candle

I tested the candle out in my hotel room for a weekend getaway trip and it had a very pleasant smell and it wasn’t overbearing.

Must have

I heard great things about Emme from my friends so I decided to try it out, this has now become my favorite candle and the sent is so calming. Must have!!!

Great candle + international shipping service

Lovely candle as always with Emme— the scent is strong and floral but has the subtlety, interest and deeper notes that lots of other candles lack. The tins are also gorgeous and look great on a bedside table. I wanted to add that I’m an international buyer (UK) and though the international shipping is still a little pricey atm (though not too bad and I hear they’re working on bringing it down!) the service has always been fantastic for me— my order arrived in about 10 days and there was detailed tracking provided every step of the way, so I’d recommend going for it if you really want one!
