Takamichi infuses the essence of his homeland, Tokyo, into his second candle, DAIDO. The candle pays tribute to Tokyo's nights, their magical quirkiness, and the subtle yet intricate beauty of Japanese ink painting, or Sumi-e. This melding of Takamichi's cultural heritage and artistic vision is encapsulated in DAIDO, bringing the mystique of Tokyo's evenings to homes in New York and beyond. The fragrance's rock salt, cool spices, and smoked hinoki accords are like a whisper of a night street food cart in a haze of smoke, inviting warmth and compelling. The inky, firewood-like scent is reminiscent of a crackling fire made with green wood.
The packaging design is minimalist, with a mid-century feel —letterpress round label.
The glass vessel is a seethrough midnight blue.

Burn for 2-3 hours each time you light the candle. This will help the candle burn evenly; remember to trim the wick before each burn.
Never leave a burning candle unattended or lit while sleeping. If you are going to leave the room or go to bed, be sure to extinguish all candles first.
Never touch or move a burning candle. Never move a candle container when the wax is liquified.
Don't burn a candle all the way down. For safety measures, stop burning a candle when there is ¼ inch of wax left in the vessel.
Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Before re-lighting, let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts.
Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
Keep candles where children, pets, or anyone else can not knock them over.
Before leaving the room, make sure your candle is entirely out and there is no glow coming from the wick ember.
Please do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
Known by New Yorkers who value individualistic, precise cuts and styling, Takamichi Saeki and the team at Takamichi HAIR have a top-performance salon showcasing the ultimate expression of Takamichi's style and vision. Takamichi opened his eponymous salon in 1999, located at 68 East 1st Street, on the corner of 1st Avenue. With a growing, loyal following, Takamichi moved the salon in 2004 to a loft at 35 Great Jones Street. In Fall 2011, Takamichi moved to 263 Bowery, 2nd floor, a modern, luxurious space designed by architect Sandra van Rolleghem and featuring a mural by Barcelona-born acclaimed artist Santi Moix. Takamichi Saeki began his creative career as the Assistant Director of the ISE Cultural Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Soho, which supports artists and scholars whose work promotes Japanese esthetics and culture. In 1991, Takamichi opened his own gallery, Salon de Fleurs, partnering with a friend. It was this experience with understanding form and composition that helped to define Takamichi as a hairstylist. He began this second career at Siren, the Nolita salon that developed a cult following in the 1990s when Andre Balazs and John Cale were regulars.
With his line of products, Takamichi's goal is simple. After 20 years of working with his clients, understanding their needs, and naturally, touching their hair, he wanted to help them clear through the clutter and simplify their regimens. His products are timeless, well-crafted, everyday essentials that not only ensuregood grooming now – but for years to come.
