Jo Malone Yuja Cologne
Inspired by the yuzu, a small citrus fruit very popular in Japan, this is a bubbly good-mood cocktail with top notes of lemon and bergamot; middle notes of yuzu, tangerine and white florals; and base notes of patchouli and oakmoss. The perfumer Raphael Haury stated that yuzu has a scent similar to mandarin, but more dynamic. With this fragrance, he wanted to translate this freshness, the unique zesty sparkle that blends mandarin and grapefruit for their vibrant tangy facets. Yuzu is connected to Asia and more specifically Japan, the country that epitomizes subtle refinement and elegance. To express this sophistication, he built the perfume on a Cyprus base, so patchouli which, added in just the right amount, promises an incredible woody, textured effect. It echoes citrusy notes to create a fresh, natural and refined perfume. This citrus aromatic fragrance was launched in 2018 and is a unisex fragrance.
SOLINOTES PARIS YUZU REVIEWS
Fragrantica: This is delicious, very light, very citrusy and a bit woody scent! Love it. This is my comfort-wear-at-home perfume.
Fragrantica: Fun fact: Fresh yuzu cannot legally be imported into the United States. Because of its scarcity, the yuzu fetches high prices, $8 to $20 a pound wholesale, and up to twice that at retail. Who needs that when you can have this awesome perfume for much cheaper! Lemon, bergamot mandarin, and yuzu - all the good stuff. Zesty! The muted white flowers add a little contrast to this fresh citrusy fragrance. It lasts 3-4 hours on me, with nice projection, which is really good for a citrus scent. Lovely! Bright and realistic. It does smell like yuzu fruit: the rind and all. Reminds me of Japanese yuzu drinks that I love!
Fragrantica: Wow this is great! A sharp and biting juicy yuzu. I've found I really enjoy yuzu as a complimentary note and so was really looking forward to trying this solinote out. Did not disappoint.
Fragrantica: Blind bought this perfume and loved it at first sniff! This is a skin scent and a great mood lifter in the morning. I overspray it after shower so it projects about an hour then fades to skin scent I can smell on myself. If you like citrus fragrances this is a juicy yuzu with hint of white florals. On my skin the other notes don’t show up which I prefer. This lasts about 4 hours but in cooler weather it might last longer. It is 112 degrees today in Arizona desert so it won’t last all day.
