Shu Uemura’s Summer 2008 collection, Hana-Bi
Hana-Bi, Japanese for fireworks, literally translated as flower-fire! Isn’t that awesome…?! In Japan there’s always a link to nature and with summertime almost here, it’s time for Shu Uemura’s limited edition collection. Every year a festive array of beauty items are selected to commemorate Mr. Uemura’s 1983 opening of the beauty boutique in Omotesando, Tokyo. I think I can see it in my mind’s eye, I must admit I spent much more time walking the streets of Harajuku. Why oh why is youth wasted on the young?!
25th Anniversary! and core values
This year is extra-special because it is the 25th Anniversary of the opening of the boutique. A Tokyo based graphic artist, Gweneal Nicolas, was brought in to design the packaging. Great big splashes of colors bursting all over make me long for warm summer nights. The three fragrances embody the Shu Uemura core values, nature, science and art.
Three 100% Natural Origin Fragrances using Deapsea water to choose from.
fleur de terre EDT is a light floral with a woody note, it’s quite an interesting scent
fleur de rose EDT is described as a floral with an amber note
fleur de source EDT is described as serene and cooling
