The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto

Located a stone's throw from the city of Uji, the Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto, pays homage to its neighbor’s rich heritage of cultivating matcha (fine powder green tea) with its signature scent. This calming tea fragrance incorporates notes of lemon, rose, cardamom, cider wood and jasmine, giving the nine-month-old resort an aura of understated dignity spread throughout the public areas with diffusers. Made exclusively for the property by Air Aroma, whose clients include Aston Martin, the subtle fragrance complements the resort’s zen ambiance. (Guests can take home the aroma for $51.)

Rooms start at $600; Kamogawa Nijo-Ohashi Hotori; 81-75/746-5555; ritzcarlton.com.
