In 1890, KOGADO was founded in Osaka, Japan, starting a long journey of perfume research and aromatic products manufacture. Since that time, the enthusiastic and courageous people from KOGADO have begun to build our aromatic Kingdom. We take “KOGADO” as our company name: the first letter “K” implies the meaning of "Kingdom", which corresponds to our centurial history of perfume manufacturing; KOGADO means “the scents derived from natural plants” in Japanese, which also reflects the spirit of the aromatic products from KOGADO.
As daily habits, ancient Osaka people liked to put the spice at every corner of the room or fumigate the clothing. Back to the year of 1890, a group of old perfumers from a small workshop collected 26 kinds of spices. They placed all these spices in different pomanders and sent these exquisite pomanders of natural fragrance to every high society family for trial. The picky nobles got high satisfaction then. They believed that only when the heavenly fragrance was drifting through the whole house, the beautiful day had just begun. This was the earliest workshop of KOGADO, and the brand of KOGADO was founded in the meanwhile.
