DREAMS by Yuko Fukami/PARFUM PHYTO

Posted by Felicia M Hazzard 16 June, 2011

                                                      DREAMS

             The scent that evokes the enchantment

  Dreams, we all have them. Rather it is dreaming about going to an exotic location for a vacation, obtaining a bigger home or dreaming of starting a business venture, we all dream.  


  A Midsummer Night’s Dream-A Scent Event is a sensory celebration that allows natural perfumers to envision or to “dream” of what it would be like to be in an enchanted fairytale located in the woods where fairies are obligated to help the lives of humans who often times make mistakes in decision making.


  These perfumers take those visions in their minds and translate them using the world’s finest fragrance notes into a poetic literary marvel that speaks to our minds, hearts and souls.


Hermia & Helena
  All of the characters in A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare have a dream. For example, Helena’s “dream” or conquest is to have Demetrius fall in love with her and Hermia dreams of being able to marry Lysander and not Demetrius as her father wishes.


  It takes a lot of ingenuity to makes your dreams become a reality and that is why I am obligated without any persuasion to write about my aromatic experiences with the fragrances designed for this artistic scent event.


  Dreams can come in colors as well as scents and the fragrance, DREAMS is an indication that in this case dreams do come true if you follow your "nose".


  DREAMS is a fragrance composed by Yuko Fukami of Parfum Phyto. DREAMS takes us deep inside the walls of our minds and into a place that is deep inside the woods. It is a place of solitude that speaks to our soul with plenty of room for self-evaluation.


  Yuko eloquently simplifies this most difficult task of having our most innermost moment exposed into an enchanting scent that brings the essence of Shakespeare’s play into a thought provoking piece of literature.


  DREAMS is a woody scent that brings a lively spirit to an area in the woods that can be dark, dreary and damp. Its enchanting and magical powers bought many fairies to this area to perform their duties for humankind.


  This woody scent is a bright indication that all dreams are not bad. It creates the attitude that “I can do all things that are possible”. It magnifies the mind with the following.


  Top Notes: coriander, Virginian cedar wood


  Middle Notes: tuberose, violet leaf, cassie


  Base Notes: hay, flouve, ambrette seed and ambergris


  DREAMS, the fragrance is not just for sleeping or the faint of heart, it is also for daydreamers, too.

  2. Lovely Felicia! And so true on so many levels...
    This fragrance is hard to describe I am finding... it is green, woody... dreamlike...like you say here... I would be interested to know how Yuko would describe the fragrance... I would add "sweet woody-floral" Yuko makes very lovely scents, she is definitely a "perfumer to Watch!"

     
  3. Sounds like a perfume to wear when you need a little boost of "I can DO this!" I'm really interested in smelling this perfume!

    Yuko is a wonderfully talented perfumer, I have had the pleasure of smelling a couple other of her perfumes.

    Felicia, thank you again for another beautiful write up!

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche,natural, artisan and designer perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
