The fragrance formerly known as Urura's Tokyo Cafe is the scent of a warm spring breeze blowing through blossom. We first made this for a charity event in Tokyo at Urura's tiny Green Ginger Cafe and it turns out that her name means exactly that – the breeze through spring blossoms.
Coincidence? Possibly. Magic probably.
This is the fragrance that started Sarah's career as a perfumer when Josephine Fairley of the Perfume Society wrote about it on her blog.
You’ll smell citrus top notes – pink grapefruit and tangerine - deep warm opoponax, tolu balsam, and raspberry jam at the base, rose, violet and woods at its heart, but all blended so smoothly that it's hard to separate them.
We renamed it because no one except Urara could remember the name, but she doesn't mind.
