As usual, calchic says it perfectly. Yuzu and white flowers with a sweetness supplied by the wild berries — subtle and translucent — delicacy personified. More floral than citrus, Hanae achieves its sweetness with a very light natural touch. The florals, even though they dominate the yuzu, cannot possibly be overly flowery because the scent is so incredibly diaphanous. Also as calchic says, the musk is the binder…and the drydown musk is even more subtle than the citrus and florals of the top and heart. As light as Hanae is, it has very good longevity. Clean, bright, fresh, translucent, and long lasting — anae casts an exquisite femininity. I believe it may just be the most ethereally transparent fragrance I’ve experienced. Beautiful.
