Olfactory Reinvention

08.07.2013 | Blog | BY:

This summer marks a revival of the Yohji Yamamoto fragrance line. Six new scents have been created by nose Olivier Pescheux (also a perfumer for the likes of Dior, Comme Des Garçons and Diptyque) to mark the occasion.

Senses is a sweet neroli, lemon and ylang-ylang ode to the carefree spirit of long summer days, while Essential is a seductive fusion of clove, gardenia, rose and patchouli. Pour Femme is a feminine blend of blackcurrant, pear, lily of the valley, heliotrope and musk, whereas the brand’s premier 90s fragrance, Yohji, has been reformulated into a modern and crisp white bouquet of bergamot, jasmine, freesia and vanilla. On the male side of things (or unisex depending on your tastes), there’s the award-winning Homme, a spicy mix of cardamom, coffee, rum and leather, as well as Pour Homme, a combination of orris, violet leaf and cedar notes.

The range is now available exclusively at Selfridges, so whether you’re intrigued to see how the new versions of Pour Femme and Pour Homme compare to the original, or are simply on the lookout for a new summer scent, your best plan of action with these fragrances is to spray, sniff, enjoy.
