Project Description



Kate Crofton-Atkins created Cochine in 2009 after leaving her career in skincare in London and moving to Saigon. Kate 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.
