MDCI Cio Cio San is a scent of petal-thrown lightless and thought-provoking introspection.
A sparkling and intense fragrance that starts on fruity notes, and develops with floral (peony), vegetal (reed) and slighty smoky tea notes.
Cio Cio San is a serene meditation that evokes the springtime and romance of old Japan with heart-twisting clarity. Images of spring in Nara, temples, artfully tended gardens, precious silks, tea houses, out-of-this-world geishas…genuinely beautiful images, reminiscent of the images of the “floating world” as ancient woodblock prints are called, that help us dream and escape…
The notes feature yuzu, limette, lemon, ginger, grapefruit, cherry blossom, peony, lychee, oolong tea, gaiac, cedar and musk.
