Tokyo Spring Blossom

Eau de Parfum

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.

Few things gladden my heart like blossom and that applies to 4160tuesdays' Tokyo Spring Blossom too. Can't get enough of this rosy violet floral with a whoosh of outdoors in there.


This fragrance has so many levels, it starts with a burst of grapefruit, zesty tangerine and mandarin orange but after a while you get the floral notes of violet and rose (both of which I love in a perfume) it settles into a gorgeous raspberry scent. I like the fact it smells different to anything else - it's the perfect perfume for Spring and Summer as it reminds me of the beautiful blossom on the trees.
