Inspired by the timeless elegance of Saigon, Cochine captures the essence of romantic escapism through its range of luxurious candles, diffusers and fragrances.  

Created as eau de parfum using the finest essential oils from plants unique to Vietnam, such as Champa Jasmine, Delentii orchid, Agarwood and Water Hyacinth, each fragrance tells its own story.

Experienced alone, Cochine fragrances will lift your mood and rejuvenate the small pleasures of daily life. Experienced with others, they will inspire a charming intimacy and captivate with your signature style.

All Cochine products are made using the finest essential oils and highest quality ingredients, ethically and sustainably sourced.


Founding Story


When skincare and fragrance specialist Kate Crofton-Atkins moved to Saigon she was instantly struck by the city’s unique style, elegance and romance.

Charmed by everyday scenes around her from hidden streets overflowing with Jasmine to the stylish backdrop of French architecture, she set about designing a range of fragrances that could capture these unique moments and the carefree sense of escape they provided.

Partnering with a New York based fragrance house, Kate spent over a year working with essential oils harvested from Vietnamese plants in order to produce the perfect combination of scents to reflect Saigon’s diverse flora and distinctive blend of oriental charm.

Kate’s passion for fragrance is born out of her belief that by combining beauty, quality and style, daily events can become a pleasure. And this principle is represented in all Cochine products, each one of which is elegantly designed, professionally crafted and perfectly scented to heighten the sense of luxury for you and those about you.

QUALITY

 Integral to our design and production is our emphasis on quality. Cochine products are made in Vietnam and France using the finest essential oils and highest quality ingredients, ethically and sustainably sourced. 

Our candles are made from a certified sustainably sourced botanical palm wax that has been specially developed for Cochine. We are dedicated to using this more natural alternative to paraffin wax. Likewise we use high performance lead-free cotton wicks in all our candles.

We have designed custom-made bottles out of recyclable plastic for our bath and body range, and our reed diffusers are each finished with a Cochine embossed silver collar reflecting the attention to detail and precision finish that makes Cochine unique.

 


SUSTAINABILITY

Using ethically and sustainably sourced materials is at the heart of Cochine’s mission to both celebrate and preserve the Vietnamese landscape.

We support sustainable farming projects, such as the Agarwood Project founded by The Rainforest Project. This Foundation has created a durable and commercially viable solution to the problem of over-harvested Aquilaria trees, which are cut down in order to extract Agarwood oil.

A hugely valuable essential oil, Agarwood was so over-harvested in the last century that it became almost extinct. Fifteen years ago The Rainforest Project began work to grow sustainable Aquilaria trees in Vietnam. They established contracts with local farmers to plant seedlings and now over 200,000 seedlings are matured to produce very high-quality, sustainably grown Agarwood oil.

Cochine is proud to use oil from certified Aquilaria Crassna trees from the Mekong Delta. We use botanical wax from RSPO certified sustainable suppliers, PET recyclable plastic bottles and our outer packaging is made from over 90% recycled card.
