THE LUMINOSITY AND ELEGANCE OF JAPAN
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: the Japanese culture, with its minimal and deconstructed lines, and the Italian one, world renowned for its impeccable sartorial quality. An unusual mix that has been further enhanced by a strong and recognizable rock ‘n’ roll attitude. Japan is a fascinating country with a rich cultural background. Throughout its millennial history, remarkable traditions and customs have consolidated, strongly characterizing the everyday life and making its population known worldwide for their natural discretion, calmness and delicacy combined with a great sense of humility, dignity and moral strength.
Inspired by the Japanese culture, the new fragrance J embodies all these aspects. Its fresh and sparkling head notes of neroli oli LMR, mandarin and lime are reminiscent of the Japanese creativity, evoking at the same time a fundamental matter: water. Cherry blossom, orange flower absolute LMR and rose in the luminous heart unfold brightness, gentleness and elegance. The charming and captivating base notes of cashmere woods, rice powder and musk recall the depth of traditions. J is an olfactive creation of the perfumer Fanny Bal, promising pupil of the master perfumer Dominique Ropion. Many of the ingredients used in this fragrance come from the prestigious LMR Laboratory in Grasse, specialized int he extraction of natural raw material of the highest quality.
The bottles of J & I intentionally share the same black colour code, but have been lacquered with opposite gradient to differentiate and give individuality to the two creations. The boxes reaffirm this same concept by sharing a common design which is though expressed differently: a minimalist and elegant pattern that highlights the white silk-screened logo on the front. The aesthetic result is a duo of fragrances that share a matching design when lined up and yet look elegant and independent when displayed individually.
