I love special perfume flacons. Today, Shiseido Co, Ltd released its original ‘Tokyo Sky Tree Parfum’ in collaboration with Tobu Tower Sky Tree Co., Ltd. to mark the completion of Tokyo Sky Tree, a Communications and sightseeing tower ythat boasts the tallest free-standing steel structure in the world, on May 22, 2012. The fragrance, which was launched on the same day, was sold in a limited quantity of 634 units in connection with the tower’s height of 634 meters.
The concept of the product is to integrate the two contrasting elements of ‘nostalgia and modern’ based on the theme of ‘Revering the past to create the future’. The fragrance is based on a floral green aroma, finishing with an elegant and Japanese modern aroma. It is a well-balanced harmonious blend that evokes a nostalgic, calm feeling while providing a refreshing and uplifting feeling that conjures hopes and wishes for the future.
Based with a floral green aroma that is cheery and refreshing, nostalgic and calming, and yet has a feeling of newness. Top note: Refreshing aroma as if looking at a clear sky that evokes an uplifting hopeful feeling towards the future. Final note: Japanese modern aroma that is nostalgic at the core yet has a feeling of newness.
A timeless beauty. The outer package has an abstract design showing the steel frame of the Tokyo Sky Tree
In terms of packaging, the stopper of the flacon is reminiscent of the symbolic shape of the top part of Tokyo Sky Tree while the elaborate cut of the flacon itself features a classic perfume flacon shape finished with a Japanese traditional ‘hemp leaf’ faceting technique.
