Hi there POSSE! Tokyo Bloom originally came to me in one of the LuckyScent Sample Packs. I went through that 0.7ml lightning quick. It then stayed on my To Buy List for years. Had a decant from Surrender To Chance and when I finished that went back to get some more but they had finished their run. OH NOOOO! Earlier in 2016 I finally bit the bullet and am now the proud owner of a bottle. I wanted to remind you of this beauty because it makes a perfect mid-season spritz.
Tokyo Bloom by Emilie (Bevierre) Coppermann for The Different Company 2012
Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Galbanum, basil leaves, dandelion, cassis
Heart: Star jasmine, cyclamen
Base: Guiac wood, musk, amber
Tokyo Bloom: The softest green, a green feather, a green whisper, a green dream. Imagine green so perfectly wearable that it’s almost as if you’ve put on green tinted glasses and changed the way the world looks, through scent. A green both cool and warm, spring and an autumn, so easy to spritz and wear.
A lightly fizzy galbanum & basil lemonade opening which quickly becomes the sappy/milky green that they are selling as dandelion but which smells like a cross between nasturtium and hydrangea leaves. Yet, having made that terrible analogy realising that it too is a load of shite. Because by the time you get a handle on it Tokyo Bloom is already into soft, waxy, clean jasmine/cyclamen territory backed by a fluffy musk. I’m surprised that ginger and orange aren’t ingredients, also that the only resin is galbanum, though amber usually has some labdanum in its make up come to think of it.
Longevity is EdT worthy, projection moderate to light. Anyone in your close orbit will notice how fresh and clean you are. Without talking Tokyo Bloom down it would make a wonderful fabric softener scent.
LuckyScent says: Emilie Coppermann’s tribute to Japan’s fifth season conjures the tenderness of spring rain on a spring-blooming garden. The raspy fruitiness of blackcurrant bud, the slightly anisic basil and an unusual, milky dandelion sap accord shower different splashes of green in the top notes. The heart yields another type of moistness with cyclamen; star jasmine, which is spicier than real jasmine, adds its sensuous flesh to the delicate blend, carried by a gentle cloud of musk.
A wistful and delicate scent with a sensuous undercurrent, and a poetic tribute to the fleeting beauty of the “floating world” captured in classic Japanese woodcuts.
