Studio Ghibli fans have a list of their fave films since diving into each one is a different experience. But have you ever wondered what some of the animated movies smell like? Donguri Closet launched a range of homeware essentials that are inspired by two of the Japanese animation studio’s stories.
Through reed diffusers, you’ll now get an idea of the scent behind Howl’s Moving Castle and Castle in the Sky. The former’s design shows Howl and Sophie on its packaging and it smells like a sweet blend of berries. Meanwhile, the latter features the characters Sheeta and Pazu and gives you an idea of how the fantasy land smells like fresh soap.
Apart from that, there will also be LED Aroma Gel Lights that are designed to make you feel the “warm light and scents” from the said films. There’s an on and off button underneath the light and the heat it produces inside will warm the gel, which then releases the aroma into the space.
The diffusers and gel lights collection comes in the same fragrances. Howl’s Moving Castle‘s fruity smell is said to be reminiscent of the fields seen in the movie during Howl and Sophie’s travels. On the other hand, Castle in the Sky‘s scent is inspired by the scene where Pazu meets Sheeta for the first time.
Priced at ¥3,300 (approx. P1,466) and ¥3,520 (approx. P1,564), the Studio Ghibli diffusers and gel Lights are now available online and at Donguri Kyowakoku branches. Donguri is a Japanese store that creates and sells Ghibli products.
