    Sometimes a chamber ensemble can play the pants off an orchestra. Osafume reminds me of the better Guerlain Acqua Allegorias, beautiful, unencumbered perfumes where the central theme is straightforward yet expressed with grace and perfect balance.
    Osafume is the spirit of a summer idyll with tall shrubs of wild anise bursting into bloom, turning passers-by into dozy bees with their subtle yet insistent scent. Many designer fougeres have completely disgraced anisic notes, going for the kind of highly chemical thrust that brings on headaches. Osafume’s anise is natural, light and airy, paired with the sighing almond-tinged breath of heliotrope and a whispery vanilla. Heliotrope and vanilla are great natural allies and they help render the overall white feel of this perfume, not snow white but fluffy meringue white (though not sugary). There’s a hint of warmth in the composition, star anise perhaps, that rounds it off without weighing down its dreamy, floating mood. A winner.

    A unique gourmand, Osofume I (as my sample is labelled) reminded at first of chocolate-flavored saltwater taffy mixed with black licorice. Despite the seemingly strange combination, I really enjoyed the olfactory memories it brought back of an old candy shop on a boardwalk by the beach. After a while, whatever was reminding me of chocolate faded, leaving the licorice over a slightly powdery soapy vanilla. The base ended up being just the soapy vanilla.

    This is a little bit simple, but quite enjoyable. It never got too sweet and, despite the candy smells, it never felt stupid or immature, like many vanilla candy gourmands tend to.
