Parfum Satori


eau de parfum



Satori is an elegant , delicate and truly refined fragrance created by Tokyo based perfumer Satori Osawa.

It is masterfully created around Kyara, the highest quality agarwood, which is known to have five tastes: spicy, bitter, sweet, sour, and salty.
"I have expressed the five tastes by blending cinnamon and clove for spiciness, cacao for bitterness, and vanilla for sweetness. Sourness and saltiness was added with a delicate amount of bitter orange, oak tree, moss, and cypress, condensing the shades of the fragrance. These five tastes are unified by a woody scent based on sandalwood and frankincense, bringing out gentleness and warmth. I have tried to express the global philosophy of Japan."

The agarwood, with greater value than gold, rises straight up from the incense burner like a posture of an elegant and dignified woman. The light softly enters the room and enhances the woman's gracious air. In a nostalgic silence, she leaves behind the rustle of her kimono and the invisible traces of her shadow...This perfume has preciously locked up the Zen sense of Japanese beauty. It is Satori's representative creation. 

The result: softness, warmth, translucence...

Rhys, perfume blogger for The Scent of Man, 
gives Satori a 9.75/10 rating: 
"The rich undertones of frankincense and sandalwood fortifies the base notes of this unisex perfume, lingering closely to the skin while projecting a wave of cosiness and serenity. I love how Satori stays close to the skin, giving my friends an element of surprise when I embrace them. I humbly applaud the perfumer for incorporating various Japanese elements and techniques into creating this fragrance and making an effort revitalizing the use of fragrant wood in today’s context once again.

The best woody scent

Being usually apprehensive of the woody genre due to the abundance of insipid ambrowoods found in such fragrances, my experience with Satori was different. I can say this is the best woody fragrances I have smelled so far. It is impeccably polished with a linear development and a definitive turpenic sweet base.

Hello loveisascent, thanks. I also still remember the first time I smelled Satori, I literally was almost moved to tears on the sheer beauty and refinement of this gorgeous woody fragrance!
Enjoy wearing Satori!

Subtle refinement

Satori is a wonderful, refined gourmand. I get cinnamon, clove, cocoa and vanilla, but it’s not heavy or cloying. I hardly smell incense.
Longevity and Sillage are moderate at best. It’s for many occasions, all year round.

Daniel-Vlad Pop

Lovely Bergamot-Incense opening that shifts into a very soft, elegant spiced woody fragrance. After then becomes relatively linear. The Perfume has average longevity and a very discreet, whisper-like sillage.
Very well blended unisex fragrance that comes in a wonderful black refined and esthetic bottle.

A Touch of Japan Soul (Nihon no Kokoro...Subarashii)

Simple and really complex, discreet and yet warm, slowly to discover, step by step, day by day. A very long embrace, indeed, a little spicy but , nonetheless, gently giving you ease and calm. I am still discovering it, that's why a give just 4 stars.

Thank you so much. How wonderfully described 'a very long embrace'. Enjoy Satori, warmest regards, Tanja - team Perfume Lounge
