aroma M Geisha Nobara-Cha Perfume Roll On
In response to numerous clamorous requests, aroma-M announces the re-launch of one of their original eau de perfumes, Geisha Nobara-Cha, (which debuted in 1995), as a perfume oil.
The difference? While this formulation still recalls an imagine an overgrown field of wild roses and retains all of its refreshing notes of geranium flower grounded in soothing amber, the absence of alcohol gives this fragrance a new potency. In its newly diffused form, the fragrance is more noticeable to those surrounding you.
In a stroke of simplicity, the flacon is papered with one of several patterns of lush-to-the-touch Yuzen papers, created for aroma M by craftsmen in Kyoto.
When to wear it? All day long.
What will it do for you? Combat stress, clear the thought processes, undo the inhibitions, and assist in meditation and prayer.
