Okapi

這是一個的年輕人與香結下不解之緣的故事。90後的創辦人Max在大學修讀視覺藝術,讀書時期開始以香創作藝術品,在創業時,一邊不斷到台灣、日本、內地和尼泊爾參考各地及不同宗教的香文化。畢業後,便創立了「Okapi Studio」,是一家手製香公司。「Okapi Studio」在2015年成立,店名「Okapi」是一種稱「四不像」的非洲動物,意指公司的產品多元化,有嘗試的精神。「Okapi Studio」透過製作各種香類產品、開辦各種製香體驗班等活動,向大眾介紹香港的「香文化」的多面性,並傳達「取之天然,棄之天然」的訊息。

「Okapi Studio」的手造香種類繁多。手造香成份天然,並無添加劑,比起市面的香較不容易刺激人體,安全可靠。Max指,香的功能可分為兩類:實際類和寧靜類。可驅蚊的香例如艾草、香茅等被視為實際類;而用來淨化氣場的聖木、白鼠尾草則屬於寧靜類。不同人可根據不同需要,選擇合適的手造香。
