All the Keiko Mecheri's I've sniffed seem formulated for the express purpose of never offending anyone. Hanae is fresh and fruity, with a cherry note that ranges from blossoms to Jolly Ranchers. The slight tang of yuzu rescues the florals from too much sweetness. There is absolutely nothing unpleasant here -- not loud, not cloying -- but it doesn't hold my interest either, and after a few hours my boredom starts to edge into irritation. That's when I start to compare it to shampoo and dryer sheets. I like my scents a little dirtier. A fan of relentlessly fresh, clean, floral scents might enjoy this more.
