The brand was established in 2009 by Founder Kate Crofton-Atkins and is inspired by her personal experiences in Saigon, where she lived following her career in skincare in London. She worked with essential oils harvested from Vietnamese plants and trees in order to produce the perfect combination of scents that would reflect Saigon’s diverse flora and distinctive blend of oriental charm. Cochine products are made in Vietnam and France using the highest quality essential oils and ingredients, ethically and sustainably sourced.
The brand features eight signature scents, each telling its own story. The fragrances have been designed as eau de parfums, but for the home, each conjuring a perfumed scene of Saigon; from hidden alleys overflowing with jasmine, to lazy, sun-drenched afternoons on the banks of the Saigon River.
White Jasmine & Gardeniacombines the white petals of Champa Jasmine, indigenous to Southern Vietnam, with Gardenia and Peony. Vietnamese Rose & Delentii merges Rose and Bergamot with Delentii, a scented orchid indigenous to Central Vietnam. Tuberose & Wild Fig is inspired by evening walks in Kate’s garden in Vietnam while Frangipani & Neroli can remind one of weekends by the sea and Water Hyacinth & Lime Blossom is reminiscent of lazy afternoons on the banks of the Saigon River. The Agarwood, a precious resinous wood indigenous to Southern Vietnam, found in Agarwood & Amber is known as “The Wood of the Gods.” Vanille & Tabac Noir combines Vanilla Bean and Patchouli with Tobacco Flower and extracts of spices. And Juniper & Ginger is inspired by the Central Highlands of Vietnam.
