We’ve had a thing about Yuzu (a type of Japanese mandarin) ever since we found out that in Japan, at winter solstice, they score the skin of the fruit with a knife and drop one in the bath to release its oils and smell. They call this ‘yuzuyu’ (yuzu bath). Sadly, we couldn’t get our hands on any yuzu essential oil, so we have to create the same effect using lots of other citrus oils. In this bar we wanted the yuzuyu experience, but with extra warmth and depth.

Here’s a video review and demo video i made of this in the bath tub.
