Osmanthus Fragrance is a fruity floral white flower from Japan and China. This uplifting creation puts us in mind of a deliciously crisp spring day. Beautifully composed, the bouquet of flowers slowly unfurls: beneath the bright, golden light of citrus notes, we experience the first sparkle and sweet sizzle of osmanthus. Texturally this flower lies somewhere between the scuffed, gripping quality of a tannic, fruity tea, and the lush, tangy curves of an apricot. A bed of Egyptian sweet herbs (do we sense the blue depths of chamomile or perhaps the cool, aromatic fire of thyme?) provides the verdant counterpoint (and compliment) to osmanthus’ dewy pale pink intensity.
Intense, fresh and somehow uncomplicated, Osmanthus is ideal for those who are proudly optimistic: by it’s infectious, lighthearted humor and youthful vigor, this scent forces us to see the sunshine in any situation. Wear it and rejoice in the sunny moments it will inevitably engineer.
