Note De Yuzu
In Japan, when the yuzu citrus ripens in winter, traditional baths are taken with the whole yuzu fruits floating in the water, imparting their delightful scent and invigorating the senses. Note de Yuzu, Heeley’s collaboration with the Tokyo-Parisian fashion house and music label Maison Kitsuné takes the yuzu bath as the perfect point of departure to encapsulate British, French, and Japanese influences into a sparkling, soothing, sensual fragrance.
Note de Yuzu opens as exuberantly as a bottle of champagne, the celebratory pop filling the air with effervescent droplets. The energy and zest of Japanese yuzu are drenched in hydration with tart lemon and fruity mandarine. As the immediate fruity freshness softens, the gentle marine notes unfold like saltwater on skin, reminiscent of Heeley’s iconic Sel Marin, but with a clean, sensual white musk base. Note de Yuzu is a charming tonic for the senses, imparting that cool-kid vibe of relaxed chic done right.
Yuzu, lemon, mandarine, sea salt, vetiver, white musk
Opening smells like the pulp from a juice drink. On my skin, the scent has good longevity. Scent smelled better after a bit.
Testing conditions: In a tropical country. Warm weather
Smells exactly like Swiss Army Altitude. I would have liked that about 8yrs ago lol
