subtle, gentle and elegant fragrance.
I blind bought and I don't regret it. Koto is now one of my favorite scents. This chypre green, slightly bitter because of the narcisse in his components is very subtle and with a good longevity and this is noticeable, since is eau de cologne formulation. I heard it is quite similar to Catherine Deneuve eau de parfum (discontinued),
Paco Rabanne Metal and YSL Y, I could never smell these 3 perfumes, so I don't know.
I think Koto can be worn all seasons, very good for office wear, because is a fragrance that won't offend anybody.

Cool Green
Koto is almost a cross between Yves Saint Laurent Y and Paco Rabanne Metal, in a legere version. Mossy, with a hint of the green florals that gives Metal its cool shine, it then becomes folded in glove leather. I can only find this in EDC and a stronger formulation would be highly coveted.
