    They sound lovely and are quite pricey.

    That is some seriously aspirational pricing (over $1200 U.S. for 60 mL), which suggests that these are more about the bottles than what is inside of them. And lo, lots of copy about tea ceremonies and knot-making and turmeric-dyed cloth.

    What is the over/under on TPC charging $30-per-mL?

    Cool Re: Parfum Satori from Japan

    I went to Satori today, and I had a great time! First of all, having a genuine qualified parfumeur is very unusual in Tokyo. There are some Japanese parfumeurs, but most of them work in Europe, which is a much bigger market. Satori-san certainly knows her stuff. She showed me her lab, with extensive scent organ, and student work areas. She let my try some vintage versions of old favorites like Kouros, Bandit, Canoe, and she had a lot more older classic stuff that I was too shy to ask about. She gave me scent strips of all her products, and also strips for several of the materials. The 60ml in the special jar is expensive partly because the jar is made by a traditional artisan, and all that traditional stuff is expensive. You can get the same juice in an ordinary bottle for a more reasonable price. Her perfumes are pretty unique, very well-made, with materials and concepts related to Japan. Satori, the signature scent, has kyara, the Japanese top-class oud (probably not natural, but she uses lots of other natural materials), while other scents refer to Japanese flowers, classical literature, etc. One thing is, they are very toned-down, since powerhouses don't really match Japanese sensibility. She was very generous with her time, served me coffee, and the artisan jeweler in the same shop (husband? I don't know) was also very friendly and showed me some rings that could have been in six figures in price. I bought a sample set of 10 vials (the cheapest thing in the shop!!), and she gave me two more vials for free. I spoke only Japanese to her, but I think she speaks some English. I am sure that plenty of Japanese women would be overwhelmed if someone gave them the artisan jar of Satori perfume, say for an anniversary or other gift. If you don't appreciate that value, just buy it in the ordinary bottle! (My favorites so far are Satori, Iris Homme and Mother Road 66.)

    I just joined basenotes and was very surprised to find Parfum Satori! I'm using “Nuage Rose and my mother “Night Plums". Very elegant and of course oriental but in a real way... I personally like its lightness. Her natural soap of Route 66 is also wonderful! All made in France. It comes in a beautiful black box. Perfect for a small gift. Satori is very friendly and understands English and French but also has a translator so you can email her in English or French. Unfortunately they don't export products abroad but her little salon is in Yoyogi a convenient place in Tokyo.

    Bump - Is this still the case? Is there any way to sample these perfumes if you live in the US?

    I'm wearing Yoru no Ume tonight, which is apropos since they've almost finished blooming here in San Francisco. In my opinion, this is a required visit for those of us who love fragrances when traveling to Tokyo. tsuzumi mentioned the gentleman who is the jeweler in the same shop, and indeed it is her husband - he not only makes beautiful and VERY ornate jewelry that is not at all my taste, but also makes hand guards on samurai swords.

    They're all well composed but lack sufficient presence on the skin. Different strokes, I suppose...

    I've read your very good reviews before, and I agree that they are not for everyone, but they are perfect for the Japanese market for which she makes them. I really respect her for straddling the two worlds of French perfumery and Japanese aesthetics and culture; there are many, many artisans in Japan who have adopted and strive to perfect icons of Western taste and culture, so it only makes sense that there is an individual who follows the calling of perfumery.

    Oh, I completely agree with you, but those who read this thread should be warned beforehand.

    I visited Parfum Satori twice and missed the perfumer, Satori, the first time, and finally got to meet her in February 2016. I recommend dropping her an e-mail if you're planning to make a trip down to her atelier. Her jeweller husband that HORNS is referring to has unfortunately, passed on in late 2015, so the boutique at the first floor has been closed for the time being. Go up directly to level 11 if you're going to be meeting her.

    While they may not be for everyone, she does have very original fragrances. She was very hospitable, and even made tea for me. She let me smell some of her raw materials (orris absolute, jasmine, jasmine sambac), and her fragrances... Some of the more memorable ones were Oribe (green citrus, citrus-aromatic-powdery), Yoru no Ume (floral woody), Iris Homme (citrus-woody-musky with a load of iris), and my favourite has got to be Satori (woody-oriental), which recreates the scent of Japanese incense. She also took the time to explain to me kodo, a traditional Japanese incense ritual...

    If you're a fragrance lover, you need to check this place out. I spoke entirely in Japanese to her, but I believe that she (or her staff) should be able to speak some English. For a more in-depth review, you can read my blog post at bit.ly/parfumsatori.

    Although I've been too lazy to visit in person, I did get the sample set with 10 samples that supposedly lean masculine.
    Briefly sampling Iris Homme on my arm in bed. Nice musky citrus floral. Much more floral than I expected, but luckily not overpowered by the violet, which is a note that can be troublesome for me. Nice scent with good quality ingredients, but not really me. A bit too much sweetness for me. I will give it a fuller wearing in warmer weather. Nice, soft diaphanous scent that is slightly powdery.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    I wore Iris Homme a couple times and like it but has not wowed me. As for Satori, I'm just in love.
