BASE:  Tobacco, White Musk, Hinoki


Re:M is a special smell I created because of a dream I had about someone important who's no longer with us. In the dream, I could actually smell things, which was unusual for me. This person wanted me to make a perfume that tells a story.

The smell starts in a white, cold room where you're excited to begin your day. You just brushed your teeth and have your work to do. While you enjoy your work, you sometimes miss the simple moments when you were carefree.

The smell then changes to a bar in Tokyo, where you're waiting for your friends to arrive. It's clean and you're sipping tea, feeling a bit excited. You notice some leftover smells on the wooden tables, like alcohol and cigarettes, but there's also a strange metallic scent of carrots. Before you can think about it, you're back in your room.

It's now afternoon, and the sun warms you up, making you feel comfortable and ready to start your day.

This perfume was a challenge for me because the smells didn't follow the usual pattern of how perfumes are made. I've made it about 80% like the dream, and I'll keep learning to make it better in the future. I also added a bit of spice because the person in the dream liked that. The perfume has natural tea smells, tea extracts, and carrot oils. It's a mix of clean and earthy scents.

Naturals: Spearmint, Bergamot, Yuzu, Vetiver, Patchouli, Jasmine Sambac, Violet Leaf, Rose Bulgaria, Green Tea, Rice Bran, Amyris, Hinoki Wood, Pine, Oakmoss, Black Frankincense, Carrot Seed, Keemun Black Tea, Jasmine Tea
