Award-winning Tokyo perfume is zingy, spicy, woody – a playful tribute to kōdō – the Japanese Way of Fragrance.
Says creator Nick Steward: “What I am trying to evoke with this fragrance is that special feeling of early morning Tokyo. The air is humid and misty. Wandering the back streets, electric cables overhead, everything is tranquil and surprisingly quiet – like being in a village with small wooden houses.
I also wanted to capture the tastes of izakaya eateries, fruits, spices, wasabi – sour and sweet – a zing on your tongue.
The earthy dampness of potted plants outside shrines and wooden temples. It’s refined, spiritual - sandalwood and smoky incense. A calm elegance amid the big city neon energy."
