Locally Inspired Indulgence: Four Seasons Japan Collection Introduces Spa Treatments with New Signature Aromatherapy Oils

May 7, 2024,
Tokyo, Japan

Starting this summer, explore a deeper dimension of wellness with Four Seasons Japan Collection. Across distinctive spa settings in Tokyo and Kyoto, Four Seasons unveils a selection of locally inspired treatments featuring signature aromatherapy oils, crafted in collaboration with acclaimed Japanese skincare brand Lapidem.

From forest bathing to meditative focus, the time-tested wellness wisdom of Japan finds resonance through these fragrant offerings. Relax, heal and revitalize with traditional rice bran and camellia oils, deftly infused with the therapeutic benefits of locally cultivated plants, fruits and flowers. With 100 percent of ingredients sourced domestically, the Four Seasons Japan Collection Original Aroma Oils conjure an unmistakably Japanese sense of wellbeing.

Guided by the expertise of Lapidem, the meticulously crafted blends incorporate traditional craftsmanship and sustainable practices. Embark on a distinct olfactory journey of wellness with each of the four signature oils.

  • Embrace (cypress, cedarwood, petitgrain). Drift into the serenity of the forest. Rich in the scent of trees and plants, known as phytoncides, this woody fragrance induces a profound sense of calm.
  • Alive (lime, grapefruit, bergamot). Awaken the heart, mind and senses. Refreshing and citrusy, this aroma enhances pliability and openness while also generating positive energy.
  • Touch (palmarosa, marjoram, clary sage). Unwind and clear the mind. Using a gentle touch, this soft floral scent relaxes the nervous system and stabilizes the mind, boosting focus and inspiration.
  • Stillness (hiba, frankincense, yuzu). Connect with the heart of the forest. Passed down through generations in Japan, this fragrance evokes the feeling of forest bathing, known to unlock healing by alleviating stress and creating tranquillity.

Guests can now experience treatments with these aromatherapy blends at all three Four Seasons spas in Japan. The oils are also available for purchase (JPY 9,900 for 120 ml) at the hotel boutiques.
