Great love of my mother
This fragrance was one of my mother's favorites. She loved many scents. I loved some of them, like JPG Classique. Others, such as KL or Angel (the latter often wore high doses), I did not like at all. If there is one fragrance that I clearly associate with her, it is Yohji. Unfortunately, she hasn't had a bottle in her possession for a long time, but I remember exactly how we tested it together for the first time and how much she loved it at the first taster.

Yohji was an innovation back then. Fruits and flowers bedded on vanilla, musk and woody notes. The fragrance is fresh, fruity, powdery and sweet, but not the way fragrance calibres with similar notes come around the corner nowadays. Not a steam hammer, but a delicately flattering, clearly feminine fragrance with a creamy vanilla note. But he had a good presence and the Sillage was not from bad parents. But he never got on his nerves, like Angel or Wish did it well when they had one sprayer too many. I find it exciting that even back then pineapples were a topic. Nowadays, it is very popular with men's fragrances, so the fruit was used to create a wonderful fragrance for women. And I remembered the pineapple very well, especially in the top note, which was pleasantly sweet-sour and mainly fruity. Only in the heart did jasmine and roses unfold, giving the fragrance a distinctly feminine touch. Though I believe that today even gentlemen would wear it, if it still existed. I keep reading about apple strudel with vanilla sauce and gingerbread among the currently popular men's classics, so why not?

Why I associate this scent with my mother? Well, I think it reflects her character very well. My mother, unlike me, who has clearly inherited her father's temperament, is a rather calm, grounded person. Nevertheless, you can laugh heartily and have fun with her at any time, even if you might not notice it at first sight. For me, this wonderful joy is conveyed by this fragrance, which, just like her and in contrast to a La vie est belle, for example, does not fall into the house with the door. And this is exactly what makes the connection perfect. Mom, you're the best!

Yohji for me is the color of Indigo!
One of my absolutely favorite fragrances ...
I love the complexity ...
very warm, light and heavy at the same time, spicy and sweet fragrance.
smoke of incenses....

Could a fragrance actually convey a color..??
Yohji for me is the color of Indigo!
a unique color ..much like this fragrance

* In line with the other colors of the 'purple family,' indigo was also a color of nobility and aristocracy. In the Elizabethan times, People of distinction and class only were allowed to wear this color. '
* In chromotherapy índigo assumes narcotic properties, eliminating the fear of darkness as well as to treat certain mental and emotional disorders.
* According to Hinduism -
Indigo is the color associated with the The Third Eye Chakra is located in the center of the head behind your eyebrows. This Chakra is related to our ability to perceive clearly. Intuition, insight, and imagination are also associated with this Chakra.

Somehow ...Yohji
manages to convey all of
Indigo's Unique Color Meaning and Symbolisms as a Fragrance...

Amazingly it makes me feel distinctive and rich..
there is a narcotic thrill in its complex smell....."makes my heart pound a little harder"
and yet I utterly feel incredibly at peace with myself...

This is a Fragrance that demands be experienced .. not just smelled!

Paint the sky with stars...
My first experience with Yohji was through a lithuanian perfumista friend, and well, she did get me hooked. Unfortunatly soo, since the beauty is discontinued and both hard and expensive to hunt down. Yohji smells like the stars on a black night sky if that´s even remotly possible.

Yohji is my first choise if I feel a little sick. There is something magically uplifting with Yohji. It´s both bright and caressing at the same time. The notes are very seamlessly blended so it´s hard -for me- to pinpoint the individual notes. It don´t develop that much either, being just a little more piercing in the opening and a little more smoth in the drydown. Yohji suits everyone, most people I´ve heard of seems to really, really like it. If you don´t feel light at heart, Yohji will almost convince you that you are. If it was possible for me to bring back discontinued gems, Yohji would be one of the first I would make a wish for.
