Cherry blossoms for the night (Yozakura)
I cannot compare this Yves Rocher version with other fragrances on the same theme since I haven't smelt any. I love the cherry blossom in their manifold variations in life and as a motif and its symbolism, but to me, they never possessed a distinct scent.
This EDT, along with Thé Vert, is my favourite among the Un Matin-line, Green Tea being the morning refreshing kick, and this sweet treat for the night; it has got a sweetness resembling almond-pastry a little, and together with its delicate and intimate air, I do not feel like wearing it during day time.
Personally, the scent reminds me very much of the 'sakura-mochi', rice cake with bean paste wrapped in cherry leaves. It is coloured rose and smells of the cherry leaves which have a mild, nutty sweet aroma.
For my part, I would name this EDT "Yozakura", Night Cherry blossom, the name for the scenery of cherry blossoms in the darkness - imagine a cool night's walk under romantically lit up cherry trees, and the 'ohanami' ('flower-watching') sittings under those trees in the dream-like atmosphere, the rose-white flowers otherworldly radiant in its haunting beauty against the midnight black sky, the magic often mirrored in its splendour in nearby waters.
A rather personal and private fragrance to be enjoyed by myself .
