Florascent Kokiku is a fruity gourmand in the Kyoto Collection. This entire line is new to me and I was pleasantly surprised by the simplicity and balance of Kokiku.
Kokiku is a delicate green tea floral. It’s a rather abstract, wearing as fresh and sheer fruity tea with a gourmand rose. The feel of Kokiku is Ellena-esque. It dries down to something that reminds me of the most delicate of white tea leaves.
My perfume tastes have been leaning towards the sheer and abstract lately, so Kokiku is perfect for me right now. It’s exactly what I want to wear in the summer. And I’m attracted to its delicateness. It’s something so perfect, so fragile. I like how I could just “smash” it. Wearing this is like the same thrill I get from wearing a white shirt without getting it all stained.
Notes listed include lychee, kumquat, white freesia, yellow rose and green tea. Launched 2013.
Or if you like perfumes like Korres White Tea Bergamot Freesia and the Hermès Hermèssence line. Because of the subtle projection, I’d recommend this one for “day” wear or for summer.
Kokiku is a light fragrance. Projection and longevity are below average. Longevity sucks.
The 1/2 oz bottle retails for 33€ at Florascent.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Sheer, delicate lychee rose tea. It’s really simple but that’s why I like it. I’d love to try the others in this collection as well.
