Sakura from Ormonde Jayne opens with a fresh burst of lime and mandarin, with a hint of spiciness from pink pepper and a green touch. Imagine the subtle fragrance of cherry blossom and gentle almond, mixed with powdery violets and smooth vanilla. I love the bright opening with a kick of spice followed by delicate florals, especially cherry blossoms. It is just so creamy, slightly sweet, and well-rounded. There is a smooth, woody-musky vibe at the base. The notes are so beautifully blended that it is hard to pinpoint a single note. Nothing stands out, and every ingredient is in harmony with each other.
Though Sakura is a cherry blossom fragrance, don’t consider it just a spring or summer scent. This is a delightful woody floral unisex fragrance that is just perfect for any time of the year. It works for both formal and casual settings. It is a lovely, easy-to-wear, elegant scent.
Until next time, Ashh xo
