Costume national

J EDP 100ml

Fragrance Family

(1 customer review)

Since its origins, the style of CoSTUME NATIONAL has always stood out for its unique blend of two fashion cultures quite far from each other: Japanese culture, with its minimal and deconstructed lines, and Italian culture, world renowned for its impeccable sartorial quality. Costume National’s J & I are an unusual mix that has been further enhanced by a strong and recognisable rock ‘n’ roll attitude.

Top notes are mandarin orange, lime and neroli; heart notes are cherry blossom, orange blossom and rose and base notes are cashmere wood, rice, cedar and moss.

"Most of the time the thing that beckons me to test a fragrance is the BOTTLE! Yes, I’m a very shallow person. The smooth, curves of the Lubin range, the classy, straight lines of the L’Artisan Parfumeur bottle, but the colour and shape of the CoSTUME NATIONAL bottle is one I’d easily ignore. To me it looks almost masculine. Luckily I sensed a mystery in this one (I’m also a bit partial to a nice smelling mystery male)! Unlike most decisions I’ve made in my so far 68 years, this time I hit the jackpot! I’m so glad I didn’t ignore “J”. It’s just lovely. Words that come to mind immediately are creamy but somehow powdery in it’s dry down. One can be repulsed if introduced to an “old” garden but THIS garden is fresh immediately after a light shower of rain, a bouquet of exquisite deep, deep red roses just cut. Another word is “heady”. Not “head achy” as some perfumes are. I would definitely purchase a second bottle of this one. Gayle"
