Yardley capture the essense of a geisha with Kiri…

Yardley London have created a fragrance with which to embody the timeless appeal of the Geisha’s best qualities: beauty, grace and intellect… Not that we need lessons in any of those categories, obviously, but it’s an intriguing concept to capture in a fragrance, we think you’ll agree.
Yardley London say: ‘The name Kiri directly translates to “mist”; a recurring image within many beautiful pieces of Japanese art, simultaneously peaceful and mysterious. A rich and intriguing floriental fragrance with fruity, spicy top notes of cardamom, clove, mandarin and plum, a fresh floral heart of rose, geranium, ylang and orris with vibrant woody notes at the base.’
Subtly spicy, this is a an interesting twist on an Ambrée fragrance – but one that’s won’t smother you, for spring.
Drying down to a pleasingly almond-like softness, the spice is there as a whisper, the rose and geranium don’t overpower – and as one might expect from a fragrance dedicated to the art of a geisha, it’s all gently hushed but characterful.
Watch the video of Kiri to see the full description of its subtle inspiration… Sometimes it does us all good to remember that the volume may be turned down, but the impact can still be lasting.
Yardley Kiri £19.99 for 50ml eau de toilette.
