KOBO was created in 2006 by Junko Kobori. Originally from Japan, she and her husband Louis spent many years traveling the world. Junko was was always struck by the scent of each place and how absent it felt when the photographs were viewed. How could the scents be expressed and captured?
That extra invisible, but profound sensory experience took you deep into your memories and feelings.

From this concept, the KOBO range of home and personal care products was born.

KOBO Pure Soy Candles are made of domestically grown, environmentally sustainable soybeans. KOBO use enviro-safe cotton wicks, environmentally friendly materials that do not pollute the home. The KOBO scents are achieved using complex, blended layers of high grade oils in collaboration with the finest boutique fragrance houses in the U.S. The candles are hand-poured in Saratoga Springs, New York.
