Cio Cio San eau de parfum by Parfums MDCI.
Cio Cio San is the name of the Japanese Geisha in the Puccini opera Madame Butterfly and if she had a fragrance it's this one. It smells of Japanese cherry blossoms, very feminine, soft, sweet and romantic, even slightly melancholy - a floral chypre Oriental with such a delicious cherry blossom note that dominates.
It opens with a burst of citruses - yuzu (Japanese grapefruit), lemon, grapefruit together with ginger. Cio Cio San softens into a beautiful pairing of peony and cherry blossom and litchi. The dry down consists of oolong tea with guaic wood and cedar with musk rounding the fragrance. This is an artistically crafted fragrance. It's definitely a modern Oriental with a vintage vibe.
Japan and cherry blossoms anyone??? This is a perfect spring and summer fragrance. Exquisitely created and quintessential femimine fragrance. Wear it with a flared white dress and high heels.
