Inspired by the red-crowned crane (丹頂鶴 / タンチョウヅル), an East Asian icon, Red Crown first intrigues us with a fluffy, rich note of cashmere along with a pastel palette of orchard blossoms--peach, plum and cherry. The blossoms lend a subtle fruitiness to the fragrance. As it develops, we pick up some refreshing oolong tea, exotic orchid, bamboo and subdued florals, creating a tranquil heart. A complex base of aromatic woods becomes prominent in the drydown, and we can smell all the woods. Thuja and pine impart green tones while an incensey sandalwood feels sacred. Red Crown demonstrates exceptional complexity and depth for a fragrance of this genre, truly evocative of the cultural and historical richness of East Asia. An absolute stunner.
For a unique, all-encompassing perfume experience, wear Red Crown and listen to "Tsuru-No-Sugomori", which will transport you to the land where the red-crowned cranes dance.
