Ripe apricot, juicy peach, tree sap, golden blossoms with a hint of citrus, and deep, resinous amber.
The kinmokusei that line the streets of Japan perfume the air with a divine scent that signals the start of autumn. The heady, complex aroma of a single blossom is almost contradictory in nature; it is deep and resinous—similar to tree sap, amber, tobacco, and suede—yet laced with bright, ripe apricot, plum, peach, and orange.
Extrait de parfum. Ingredients: denatured alcohol (isopropyl myristate for international orders), fragrance. 1 oz glass bottle with fine mist spray pump.

The scent of the golden osmanthus in bloom was the earliest inspiration for creating the Japan Collection.
This perfume is our best approximation of kinmokusei, born from my own nostalgia and desire to smell them again. We tried to capture the essence of the entire experience of walking past kinmokusei—of sap and heady blossoms combined.
