Lancashire, UK (PRWEB UK) 17 November 2012
An American perfume manufacturer has launched an eccentric new fragrance that takes its inspiration from the signature dish of Japan.
Demeter Fragrance Library has released the Sushi perfume, but for those who think the smell of raw fish might be a little too pungent for a fragrance, the makers claim that the aroma is “not what you think it would smell like”.
The “simply delectable” perfume is infused with different types of oriental accords than the ones that are generally found in more mainstream fragrances. Sushi contains notes of freshly cooked sticky rice, seaweed brought straight from the seaside, lemon essences and a hint of ginger.
Although the main ingredient of sushi, raw fish, is not found in this perfume, it’s safe to say that a shusi-based fragranc might not be everyone’s cup of tea. However, it seems that the Sushi perfume has gone down quite a treat with Demeter customers.
Sushi has been given an above average user rating on the Demeter website, and customers who have written reviews are overally pleasently surprised at the perfume’s sweet yet spicy aroma.
One user claims the scent, which “smells like vegetarian sushi”, is “one of the best scents I’ve tried, if not THE best.” Meanwhile, another user has commented that “it is fun to own such a unique and uncommon perfume”.
However, the Sushi perfume has not been an overwhelming success amongst fragrance fans, with one unimpressed customer claiming that the scent smelled “almost like liquorice” and not the ginger and lemon that had been described.
An intriguing aspect to note from the Sushi customer reviews is that almost all of the posts refer to a hint of vinegar in the perfume, something which has not been mentioned in the product description by Demeter.
For those who are looking for something a little different to add to their fragrance collection, the Sushi perfume is currently available to buy for as little as six US dollars, so take the essence of Japan’s favourite meal everywhere, not just in the sushi restaurant.
