retaW x Katamama

Of all the senses, smell is the most closely connected to memories. 

Adding to the sensory experience at Katamama, we have collaborated with retaW, a Japanese skin care and lifestyle brand, to create a bespoke reed diffuser oil for our suites.

Co-founded in 2008 by Hiroshi Fujiwara, a globally influential Japanese street wear designer, retaW (‘Water’ backwards) uses pure, locally sourced ingredients to construct each of its forward-thinking fragrances. 

Looking to Bali’s vast natural landscapes and ubiquitous temples for inspiration, retaW has custom-made a fragranced oil using water lily, jasmine and cedar wood – an earthy aroma that will induce thoughts of Katamama and its island home. 

The ceramic bottles used are the result of another collaboration, this time with one of Bali’s artisan ceramic workshops, Gaya. Gaya has crafted two signature bottles using a hand-thrown technique to incorporate blue and white, colours that evoke Katamama’s oceanfront setting.
