MIKMOI Itoh reminds me of seaside bonfires.
Itoh opens with astringent cedar and an aquatic breeze of florals. It’s peony and a sharp rosewood. Itoh becomes a slightly “charred”, smoky woodsy scent with salt air. And this is why it reminds me of a seaside bonfire. I know that this may read as intense but Itoh is sheer, airy, delicate.
I have issues with peony perfumes, but I love Itoh. I guess I like my pretty florals with some charred cedar and tobacco. Go figure 😉
Notes listed include white cedar, pink lotus, peony, pemou wood and tobacco leaf. Launched 2013. PERFUMER – Michael Coyle
Give Itoh a try if you are looking for a cedar or a peony with a “twist”. Or if you like perfumes like Nomaterra East Hampton, Stella McCartney Stella, MAC Turquatic, D.S. & Durga Silent Grove and/or Nautica Voyage. I realize that my “if you” list is rather broad, but I can see a wide range of tastes liking this one – from a person that likes pink florals to a person that likes cedar and tobacco scents. It’s woodsy, floral, fresh but smoky. I find Itoh unisex.
Itoh has average projection and longevity.
The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $90 at MIKMOI. A sample set is also available for purchase.
