The World of Kaori

Ever stepped into an elevator to be engulfed by that tantalizing fragrance which leaves you floored? Or ever found yourself involuntarily following the mesmerizing trail left behind by that lovely lady in your building??? Well, that's the magic played out by perfumes. It not only attracts you but fills one's senses with various emotions which need no words to be expressed!!

Perfumes are not merely concoctions invented to fight body odour, but they are almost an extension of one's persona. There are various reasons for which people might collect perfumes. Some collect them for their fragrance, while others collect them for the beautiful bottles that they come in. I,personally, love to collect them for the sense of happiness, calm & serenity they bring to my mind with every breath that I take.

So you can gauge the level of my excitement when we received an invite to the launch of a new brand of perfumes....KAORI. These perfumes are aptly named so as it is Japanese for FRAGRANCE. This is a new brand of perfumes curated by Fragrance curator NISHA SHAH. Kaori is a bunch of BESPOKE FRAGRANCES, which claim to "speak for you" and tell the one that you value, all that you ever wanted to say with a PERSONAL TOUCH. In short, it makes your loved ones feel SPECIAL!!

We got the wonderful opportunity of being able to try on a few of these fragrances and i must say that they were impressive!! I am putting down a few details about the fragrances that we got to try...

But before I get into the details about the individual perfumes, I would like to put down a few words for the benefit of those who are new to the concept of NOTES in perfumes. Every perfume consists of three notes namely TOP notes, MIDDLE/HEART notes and finally BASE notes. 

TOP NOTES : These are the initial or first fragrances perceived upon applying the perfume.They are usually sharp and hence responsible for the "first impression" that a perfume gives.

MIDDLE NOTES : These are the heart of the perfume.These scents emerge just before the top notes fade away.They are usually mellow & help to mask unpleasantness of the stronger base notes.

BASE NOTES : These form the base of the perfume and are usually perceived once the perfume "dries down" typically after around 30 minutes. They are the most long lasting notes of any perfume.

With this, I would like to introduce you all to the individual fragrances that we tried out...

Although most perfumes are broadly classified as masculine or feminine, there is rarely any clear cut demarcation. They can be worn on the basis of personal preference or mood of the individual. I would really suggest Kaori as a good option if you would want to gift that SPECIAL SOMEONE something that would speak more than words!! If you are interested in knowing more about KAORI, you can contact NISHA on the following media.
