My mum is a big fan of this and I wanted to get her something that has a similiar scent, but from a different manufacturer. Would anyone be able to give me some suggestions? I check on the database but the Cherry Blossom doesn't have a description of all the notes.
Other manufacturers' Cherry Blossoms are:
-- Bath and Body Works Cherry Blossom (floral fruity, sweet) and Japanese Cherry Blossom (their best seller, floral-oriental);
-- Salvatore Ferragamo Parfum Subtil (sweet flowers on a fuzzy musky base);
-- Kenzo Le Monde Est Beau (floral-oriental, sakura blossom is paired with citrus and warm woody-vanillic base, good longevity and, in general, a very harmonious composition);
-- Annayake Hanami (fruity loral with plum blossom and peony on top of cherry blossom);
-- Fragonard Cerisier en Fleurs (have not tried it);
-- Guerlain Cherry Blossom (EdT is quite boring with a typical Guerlain base, perfume is rather expensive and hard to find but sublime!) and Cherry Blossom Fruity and a few more.
In general, I have heard that Japanese perfumeurs are especially good at recreating the authentic cherry blossom fragrance: Shiseido Sakura Blossom, Kanebo, Pola, etc.
