Sugary nectars and sunny fruits combine with the subtle impression of vanilla and toffee to create a floral confection—like blooming childhood summers in Japan and the jewel-like sweets found in the patisseries of Hanae Mori’s beloved Paris.
Drawing inspiration from designer Hanae Mori's very own name, HANAE, meaning "flowers", embodies the spirited youth of the fashion icon herself across Tokyo, New York and Paris.
For Madame Hanae Mori, the image of the butterfly—a soaring symbol of flight and promise—is never far from its home: the flower. Beautiful, joyous and elegant, the pair is a symbol of freedom and femininity. For that reason, Hanae is presented with a single butterfly perched on a flourish of jasmine flowers. The pair embodies the delicate harmony found in nature.
The scent blends a bouquet of pretty blooms of Sicilian bergamot, orange blossom and Madagascar jasmine—invoking the verdant Japanese valleys of Hanae Mori’s childhood. Next, bright red apple and the sparkling tartness of wild strawberry spill over with a youthful heart—bringing to mind the vivid patterns of Hanae Mori’s first fluttering dresses. Finally, black currant deepens the scent’s deliciousness, while white cedar and warm sandalwood add sultry richness.
