SHISO FROM JAPAN
The word “shiso” is a direct loan from the Chinese name for the plant: zǐ sū (紫蘇) that translates as “purple [plant] that revives”. Shiso is highly-prized in Japan. This variety from Japan is bigger and more fragrant than the other varieties and once hydrodistilled offers fresh, woody and spicy notes.
“When I created SOMEI YOSHINO, I wanted to express this unique annual spectacle orchestrated by Japan’s cherry trees when they come out in blossom. Then I was swept up by this mad yet harmonious dance of swirling blossom that redesigns the Japanese landscape for a season.”
ANGÉLINE LEPORINI. A line of Eaux de Parfum that is worthy of the Grand Cru appellation, distinguished by the exceptional seals on their bottles.
Our perfumers have scoured the world in search of the most precious ingredients to reveal all the sweetness and harmony of Japan’s cherry trees.
