    Default Asian perfume brands?

    I have a fascination with all things Asian, so...enable me!

    Other than Hanae Mori (which I happen to love and am considering buying...the one I love seems to be limited edition so I better decide quick!) what are some Asian perfume brands I could check out?

    Most of the perfumes are probably created in France anyway, but the jap contingent includes Shiseido (with the associated Serge Lutens, no less - Nombre Noir and Feminite de bois came out as Shiseido...), and the jap/french stylists Kenzo, Issey Miyake, CDG, and Yamamoto. Nothing comes to mind from China - I was in a Shanghai Tang store a couple of days ago with my sister, but the perfumes didn't really register ...

    When I went to Korea, I was pleasantly surprised by an unassuming but very pleasant Harajuky knockoff, which unfortunately is not available stateside:

    Oooh, I LOVE Shiseido's lipsticks (awesome! Even if they ARE freakin' expensive!!!!). I'll check out their fragrance, thank you!

    I've tried a couple Kenzo frags, at least on paper I wasn't a huge fan. Haven't tried any Issey Miyake or Yamamoto. I'll look them up. What is CDG?

    Thanks!

    Actually, you CAN get Etude House in the States: BB Cream Boutique. You just gotta look in places you wouldn't normally look for frags.

    Awesome!!! Thanks guys!!!

    Are the scent descriptions on the minime accurate? I like the idea of a "green floral".
