French niche line Parfums MDCI has launched Cio Cio San, a new perfume for women.*
Picture a stage set with paper lanterns and parasols, the rustling of silk kimonos, and trees bursting with cherry blossoms – the heightened, glowing version of a far-off place that you might see at the opera. Here you will find the endearing and ever-hopeful Cio Cio San, whom you might know better as Madame Butterfly.
Cio Cio San was developed by perfumer Cécile Zarokian. The notes feature yuzu, limette, lemon, ginger, grapefruit, cherry blossom, peony, lychee, oolong tea, gaiac, cedar and musk.
Parfums MDCI Cio Cio San can be found now at Luckyscent, in 75 ml Eau de Parfum for $250. The bust edition is $375.
