Tokyo Milk Parfums Part 2

By Mag Teo

Le Petit No. 2
Notes: violets, peonies, vanilla beans (floral and sweet)

Feminine and comforting, Le Petit is an almost-powdery blend. Laced with floral accents, the unmistakable whiffs of vanilla give way to sweet touches as the perfume rests on the skin. It can be a little heady but people who love strong, reassuring scents will like this.

Song in D Minor No. 13
Notes: white orchid, orange flower, gardenia, amber (classic floral)
Fresh and sweet, Song in D Minor puts a mellow tune in your heart with its light floral medley. Indubitably feminine, this classic fragrance will appeal to many, so pleasing are its floral notes.

Sparrow No. 18
Notes: neroli and citrus, crisp greens, gardenia, rosewood (fresh citrus)
A delightful mélange of greens and sweets, the neroli in Sparrow plays beautifully with the sugary notes. Crisp and light, this refreshing fragrance seems like a sweeter version of L'Occitane Thé Vert (Green Tea), one of my favourite scents.

Waltz No. 14
Notes: linden, honeyed rose, wisteria petals, white musk (sparkling floral) Lifted by soapy linden notes, yet grounded by a lingering trace of musk, Waltz has an evident honeyed floral heart. Clean and cool with a delicate edge, this refreshing fragrance seems suited to young women who want a wearable scent with a touch of sophistication.

Kabuki No. 9
Notes: Sugared grapefruit, lychee, sweet jasmine (sweet and crisp)
One of my first Tokyo Milk fragrances, Kabuki charmed me with its playful sweetness. The lychee and grapefruit morph interestingly into sweet-and-sour plum tones that add texture to this scent set against soft vanilla notes. The citrus accents balance its inherent sweetness and give this fragrance a complexity that shrouds it in sophistication and a touch of je ne sais quoi. I'd say that of the entire range, Kabuki is one of the most difficult to dupe, so unique is this scent!
