London-based niche line Gallivant has launched Tokyo, a new addition to their series of "urban exploration" fragrances.
Gallivant’s Tokyo captures the moment when Old Tokyo meets New, the sweet smokiness of Japanese incense of Kodo ceremonies spilling out of small wooden temples to meet the sweet-and-sour pungency of izakaya street food.
There’s a lot going on in Tokyo, the city, and so there’s a lot going on in Tokyo, the scent. But despite the cacophony of notes, it all meshes into a singular statement on modern Japanese urban culture.
Notes for the spicy woody fragrance include yuzu, bergamot, black pepper, cardamom, wasabi, hinoki, cedar, nutmeg, iris, rose, incense, sandalwood, vetiver, patchouli, musk and amber.
Gallivant Tokyo is available at Luckyscent, $95 for 30 ml Eau de Parfum.
