KOBO was created in 2006 by Junko Kobori. She and her husband Louis spent many years traveling the world, but were disappointed by the way photos and stories alone failed to capture the beauty of these exotic locations. Junko realized that fragrance, one of the key elements in bringing an environment to life, was often overlooked. That invisible, but profound sensory experience that takes you deep into your memories and feelings. From this concept, the KOBO range was born. The Plant the Box Collection is comprised of pure soy candles presented in plantable, seed-infused packaging that will grow the scent of the candle.
