A fabulous and unique combination of the young, green shoots, the emerging rice and the water. This fragrance has elements that are fresh and energizing, while also reflecting the calm, almost Zen-like nature of the rice paddy. The development of this fragrance was very personal. I had wanted to make a Rice fragrance for some time, but despite several efforts, I was unable to come up with anything satisfactory. Then on a trip to Taiwan I visited a factory, and on each side of the factory was a working, living rice paddy. At the first chance I slipped away and spent 30 minutes contemplating that paddy and inhaling its scent. It was that experience I tried to capture in this fragrance.
