Hanae Mori Pink Butterfly perfume was launched in 1996, created by Bernard Ellena. This is a woody gourmand with notes of strawberry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, ylang, jasmine, rose, peony, sandalwood, almond tree, rosewood and Virginia cedar. This is the pink butterfly box, the EDT, eau de toilette.
Fragrantica - "A true gourmand, through and through. Completely edible, personally, I get none of the florals. The berries are sweet and smooth without a hint of tang. The almond is smooth, golden and almost syrupy. There's no vanilla, although it smells like there is. And it's a rather golden vanilla - like the almond. To me, I get a almond syrup soaked vanilla cake warm out of the oven, and topped with perfectly ripe sweet summer berries. That's about it - and it's perfection just as is.... This is a cozy sweater, warm hug, best friend, tender lover type of fragrance. It's the perfume version of comfort food. Something you reach for to feel warm and safe. I've been loving this beauty for about 20 years"
Fragrantica - "But then it dried down and it's all sandalwood and ylang ylang. It became so sweet and delicious and I could not stop smelling myself. It was really intoxicating. My boyfriend said I smelled like a dessert. The longer it was on the more I loved it. I am actually glad it was a blind buy because if I had smelled this in a store, I would have never bough it and now I can tell it will be one of my favorites."
