A delicate perfume of cherry blossom

"Somei Yoshino" - Yoshino cherry tree, evokes the land, the origins of Japan : an invitation to contemplation.
Our perfumers have concocted a tale made of tenderness and serenity as epitomised by the blossoming of Japanese cherry trees – a ceremony that is a delight to the country and spectators alike.
Somei Yoshino is a noble blend of Shiso from Japan, Jasmine Sambac from India and Patchouli from Indonesia that meld into a harmonious balanced, floral bouquet.

SHISO FROM JAPAN

The word "shiso" is a direct loan from the Chinese name for the plant: zǐ sū (紫蘇) that translates as "purple [plant] that revives". Shiso is highly-prized in Japan. This variety from Japan is bigger and more fragrant than the other varieties and once hydrodistilled offers fresh, woody and spicy notes.

When I created SOMEI YOSHINO, I wanted to express this unique annual spectacle orchestrated by Japan's cherry trees when they come out in blossom. Then I was swept up by this mad yet harmonious dance of swirling blossom that redesigns the Japanese landscape for a season.

PATCHOULI FROM INDONESIA

Patchouli is an addictive odour with connotations of love and seduction. This small green or mahogany-coloured leaf that comes from Indonesia wilts quickly once it has been cut, but is loaded with essential oil. Patchouli is used when formulating perfumes for its intense, complex notes that are both woody and camphorated.

JASMINE SAMBAC FROM INDIA

This plant is grown in the Indian Himalayas for its pungent flowers. Jasmin sambac is often used in religious ceremonies or as flavouring for tea. When extracted it offers a warm, sugary, opulent, fruity and sometimes a hint of animal.
