Inimitable, Sensual Elegance
The scent of the Japanese lotus lily. The exquisite daintiness and charm of the choicest flowers of Japan are embodied in this delightful perfume. A bright, radiant floral composition with pronounced chypre and Oriental facets, Hasu-No-Hana ultimately comes to rest on a woody, dry base. Our first glimpse of this fragrance reveals hints of citrus, perhaps the suggestion of the sour-sweet, dark juices of bergamot and bitter orange. A heart of classic florals is carefully engineered to recreate the mystic elegance of the lotus. A profoundly clean, elegant floral shape emerges (that may or may not allude to the presence of rose) only to morph into the shadowy, sensual elegance of powder-rich, buttery iris, or the liquid indulgence of indolic jasmine. A fruity surge mimics both the vibrant intensity of ylang-ylang and the the smoky-sugared verdant dynamism of patchouli. Indisputably, oakmoss is a presence herein, diffusing a waxen, complex cloud of dense, earthy spice over this fragrance. Vetiver and cedar are potential contributors to the sparkling fog that grounds Hasu-No-Hana, while a rich, slightly gourmand fizz (tonka bean) sings within a green, linear frame (sandalwood). Originally created in 1888, this scent has a timeless quality which comes from its pioneering spirit. From the dawn of modern creative perfumery, Hasu-No-Hana paved the way for modern fragrances and continues to intrigue and captivate the most contemporary tastes. Sensual, inimitable elegance.
