Behind The Creation

White River · Shirakawa

An ode to Shirakawa - known as White River - that meanders through the heart of Kyoto like a flowy ribbon from Heian Shrine to the northern reaches of Gion. The riverbed is lined with white sand and gravels that glisten like precious stones in the sun, earning White River its name. As an attempt to capture Shirakawa's beauty, the fragrance opens with fuzzy vanillic accords that sails toward a mellow musky warmth, lingering for hours in the air.
