Perfume Review: Ginza by Shiseido

It has been a while since Shiseido released a new fragrance but finally 2021 comes with a new perfume with a Japanese minimalist bottle design. Ginza the lively soul of Tokyo, the origin of Shiseido. Ginza, the fragrance for women who assume their femininity and all its paradoxical facets: subtle yet intense, delicate yet strong, wise yet passionate. A fragrance that encourages women to express their femininity, celebrate their duality and unleash their unsuspected power.

The Shiseido Ginza Eau de Parfum is an elegant floral fragrance, fringed in woody accords. Ginza is Japan’s most cosmopolitan district, the very origin of Shiseido. The fragrance itself creates irresistible paradox for the woman who is soft yet strong, poised but passionate.

The natural elegance of floral scents combines with the intensity of sacred wood notes to produce a perfectly balanced blend. At the heart of the bouquet, jasmine delicately unfolds its most sumptuous facets. Magnolia and Japanese orchid petals join in the dance, sharpened by the hinoki wood. At once strong and gentle, the scent of this sacred Japanese cypress recalls the intensity of patchouli and the depth of sandalwood.

On the skin, this woody floral fragrance is as feminine as it is vibrant: decidedly unique.
