Mihime by Keiko Mecheri Perfume. Inspired by a modernist take on a wonderfully old-fashioned Oriental fragrance, Keiko Mecheri Mihime was launched in
2006 to commemorate the Art Deco designers who flourished in the 1920s and 1930s. Like so many of her perfumes, there isn’t a definable top, heart or base. Indeed, the notes are so perfectly blended, it’s wonderfully difficult to pick out separate ones – like a puzzle that compels one to try to solve, and sure to grab the attention of those
seeking a complex mystery. Beautiful Japanese cherry blossoms provide a potent floral opening, blending with the other flowers while providing a hint of green citrus. Exuberant red rose adds a romantic element, while narcissus blossoms create the stark lines so closely associated with Art Deco. Ylang ylang gives a bit of soft powder and a hint of cream. Undertones of hawthorne, bergamot, violet, peach, amber, vanilla, heliotrope and white musk lie hidden in the depths of this intricate scent.
Keiko Mecheri is an eclectic perfumer, designing fragrances with unexpected and curious elements. She bonds old-fashioned notes with a distinctly modern interpretation for a sensorial explosion.
