With Yuzu in the night
Yuzu is a recent discovery of mine. More and more often the fruit appears in fragrances and has its own character, which distinguishes it from other citrus fruits. Yuzu is an early cross between Ichang lemon and mandarin and has been cultivated in the Yangtze basin in China for thousands of years. The first fragrance that, according to my perception of Yuzu, focused on Yuzu was "Yuzu Rouge" from 06130 - Zéro Six Cent-Trente (2003). I liked the fragrance right away and I became interested in this acidic and bitter plant. Up to this point I had no idea about the fruit. By the way, there is no Yuzu next to the Kiwi on the shelf of my supermarket.

At larger intervals, fragrances such as "09 Yuzu Ab Irato" by Pierre Guillaume (2006), or "Yuzu Fou" by Parfum d'Empire (2008) as well as fragrances from smaller and smallest brands were released. Only after 2010 did the number of such fragrances increase steadily and the use of Yuzu become commonplace. Interesting fragrances from this field (Yuzu in the center) are also "Eau de Yuzu", just recently published by Nicolai, "L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme Yuzu", "Note de Yuzu" by Heeley, "Yuzu" by Acqua di Parma and "Yuzu Man" by Caron,

By the way, the 'Izu' in the name of this fragrance should not be a different Latin transcription of the Chinese or Japanese word for Yuzu, as I first suspected, but refers to a province/region or city in Japan. Nevertheless, Yuzu is clearly in the center of this fragrance by Keiko Mecheri, similar to the above mentioned fragrances. That made me curious.

Les Nuits d'Izu opens with a gentle yuzu aura, followed by a musk cloud in the top note, which is familiar from various Keiko-Mecheri fragrances. As the fragrance develops, the powdery musk becomes more dominant, but then in the heart note it is softly underscored by rose. I would not have recognized moss, but it seems plausible to me. The scent on textile or paper remains fresher and more acidic, on the skin it appears softer and more powdery. After all, the Nights of Izu thus offer two variations: one for peaceful slumber (Hesperidia) and one for eroticism (Rose and Musk). There's something to be said for that.

Moss, Greens, Flowers, Citrus: yes!
LES NUITS D'IZU is by far the most orthodox of the citrus cologne limited edition Keiko Mecheri launches. This really smells like a citrus cologne and in fact reminds me quite a lot of Bond no 9 EAU DE NEW YORK and Banana Republic W in turns.

It must be the moss mingling with the greens and the flowers, along with the citrus which are binding LES NUITS D'IZU to EAU DE NEW YORK in my mind's nose. The main difference is that this Keiko Mecheri creation has an ever-so-slightly soapy quality in the drydown. In fact, the drydown reminds me a bit of NEW YORK FLING...

This is a nice composition, no doubt about it, but it's not really new, and I already own both EAU DE NEW YORK and W, which do an excellent job of covering this now contested territory! (-;
