Parfumeur Cécile Zarokian captures Japan in a bottle with Cio Cio San for Claude Marchal, the founder of MDCI.
Claude had always been interested in Japan, its culture and in particular wood carvings. Cécile knew how to capture this in perfume and Clause immediately fell in love with what he came to call Cio Cio San after Madame Butterfly's opera by Puccini.
Cio Cio San is a story of spring-time with her cherry blossom, temples, the beautiful Japanese gardens, rustling silk, tea houses and stunning geishas...
A feminine, happy, bright, romantic fruity floral which has been given depth and character by the ginger and tea. A truly lovely fragrance!
yuzu, lemon, limette, ginger, grapefruit, cherry blossom, peony, lychee, oolong tea, guaiac wood, cedar, musk
The independent House of Parfums MDCI (MDCI stands for Marchal Dessins et Créations Indépendantes) founded in 2003, is reviving the French tradition of the Art of perfume and creates rare and original perfumes, presented in unique and aesthetic bottles in collaboration with master perfumers chosen for their talent. Classic and innovative.
Classic, as the Italian Renaissance, the seventeenth century France and the great voyages of discovery were the points of reference guiding the brand creator's work. Innovative, for offering something so contrary to the mass-produced minimalism prevailing today- small sculptures inspired by the Renaissance or the Ancient World, posed elegantly on a very refined cylindrical plinth that doubles as a bottle.
