Years ago, I tried Yosh White Flowers in a small boutique in Seattle. Returning home, my husband asked me, “Why don’t you smell like this all of the time?” This was my first experience with a Yosh perfume and back in those days I did not wear floral perfumes.
White Flowers opens with jasmine, rose and dirt. It reminds me of pulling weeds in a garden with flowers much more glamorous than the ones in my crummy garden. Somehow this fragrance makes me think that it is possible to be glamorous while pulling weeds… I also pick up a “lilac spice” and crushed greens and little white mushrooms. Many white floral perfumes are creamy, Yosh’s isn’t. It’s green with hints of earth. The white florals aren’t what this perfume is about. I pick up on rose, freesia, lilac. White Flowers is a floral fragrance. The flowers come in many different colors. And it’s heady. It’s floral. With time the fragrance “settles” and I’m left with spring florals and a slight powderiness.
Notes listed include jasmine sambac, night blooming jasmine, violet, sweet pea, freesia, tea rose, rose maroc, gardenia, lily of the valley, lilac, Egyptian tuberose, Siberian fir, narcissus, and petitgrain. PERFUMER – Yosh Han
Give YOSH White Flowers a try if you like floral perfumes. Or if you like perfumes like Caron Fleur de Rocaille, Parfums delRae Coup de Foudre, Phaedon Rue des Lilas, and/or Tocca Giulietta. White Flowers is very floral. Because of that I view it as a feminine fragrance.
YOSH White Flowers has above average projection and average longevity. If strong florals give you a headache, you may want to avoid this one. It’s a potent floral.
The 1.7 EDP spray of YOSH White Flowers retails for $110 and is available on Amazon.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Not sultry white flowers like tuberose, but spring florals like lilac and lily of the valley with a little bit of green. Bottom line is that to enjoy this one, you probably need to like floral fragrances. I’m still working on that 🙂
