Watches promise a distinctive scent of Japan for the wrist

In many places, midsummer in Japan isn’t necessarily good-smelling, even in corners where summer smells bad. A Japanese manufacturer wants to counteract this with special watches that allow the distinctive scent of Japan to be accepted everywhere.

At least that’s the idea behind the new “Kaoru” line by watch maker Maruzecki. The new models are available in seven colours. Each is fitted with a rubber strap with one of seven signature Japanese fragrances. The soft pink sakura clock exudes a lovely floral scent that is reminiscent of the blossoming of cherry blossoms in springtime.

More than just stylish watches

The matcha version releases a rich, though slightly bitter aroma that is reminiscent of a comforting cup of green tea or the popular matcha ice cream in summer. Japanese cypress is known for its pungent smell, which can also be found in bracelets. The scent is also said to calm the nerves and keep insects away. The Tsubaki watch exudes a subtle smell of camellia, which many people find very appealing. Yuzu watch knows how to lift the mood with the invigorating aroma of citrus fruits. Yuzu fragrance is also used in many Japanese bath additives for this reason.

The Waboku model smells like the ink pads used in Japanese calligraphy. Many Japanese consider hearing this smell with nostalgic tendencies, but it is intentional, as many people in the end have great memories of their school days. The Ginkgo clock exudes the smell of freshly burnt agar wood, which is still lit today in temples and shrines during some ceremonies. In any case, watches are a delightful gimmick for summer and the perfect souvenir for visitors to Japan to take home with them a piece of country.

Direct shipping via Japan Post

Maruzecki watches are shipped directly through the Japanese Post Office, from where “Kaoru” watches can also be ordered directly. Swiss Post ships all models in attractive gift boxes that have their own visual appeal. Normal versions cost 3,200 yen (about 23.50 euros) each, special variants with more complex dials and, for example, the Doraemon application cost between 3,600 yen and 4,400 yen (27 euros – 32 euros).

However, the color-odor combinations are not fixed. Some dealers offer fixed arrangements, for example Tokyo watches with a yuzu fragrance and Maiko models that smell directly like Tsubaki from Maruzaki. The technology for all watches comes from Seiko Epson, with all parts including the bracelet manufactured directly in Japan.
