That special feeling of early morning Tokyo – the air is humid and misty. Wandering the back streets, electric cables overhead, everything is tranquil and surprisingly quiet – like being in a village with small wooden houses. The tastes of izakaya eateries, fruits, spices, wasabi – sour and sweet – a zing on your tongue. The earthy dampness of potted plants outside shrines and wooden temples. It’s refined, spiritual – sandalwood and smoky incense. A calm elegance amid the big city neon energy.”
Tokyo is a zingy, spicy, woody fragrance. A citrusy head of yuzu and bergamot with black pepper and cardamom, electrified with a dash of wasabi. A woody heart of hinoki, cedarwood, and incense, with iris, rose and nutmeg, on a base of amber, sandalwood, patchouli and vetiver.

They bonded over a shared love of travel as well as Japanese food and culture. Nicolas is always keen to work with natural materials – and organizes his own travels to see raw material harvests around the world. He’s created fragrances for Acqua di Parma, L’Atelier Givenchy, and cult Parisian house Astier de Villatte. Nicolas was the pupil of master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, and also trained under Françoise Caron. “He’s a rising star,” says Nick “and I’m always keen to showcase talented people doing the work.”
