What would peace and comfort smell like? Xerjoff chose the centuries-old temple lodging, Shunkoin, as it's inspiration for this installment of the line's club-themed series. Shunkoin is not a literal evocation of a temple - no austere wood and incense composition here, instead Xerjoff's created one of the most gorgeous and comforting creamy cherry blossom fragrances we've ever smelled. It's an expression of meditative peace and tranquility, with a little sensuality mixed in.
A delicate almond-softened cherry blossom floats on top of creamy sandalwood, powdery ambers, and a soft whisper of tea. Its comforting milky texture and languid fullness is shaped by the faintest waft of sweet olibanum and raw vanilla bean.
With one sniff of Shunkoin, you will be transported to another level - a place of comfort, peace and presence -- olfactory zen-- whether you're in a quiet corner of a temple garden, or your morning rush-hour commute....Breathe in... Breathe out... Mmmmmmm.
The ingredients of these fragrances are to be kept a secret.
This perfume is very unique and unlike anything else I've ever smelled...and my nose has gotten around! My nose picks up aromatic warm spices and it has an earthy quality to it that is enveloped in a delicate powdery vanilla base. Reminds me of a milky chai tea latte. It's a comforting, calming and grounding scent and I like it.
