Hanae Mori Eau De Collection No.4 Review

Hanae Mori, a well received brand for perfume has come out with No. 4 in its limited edition collection. This perfume debuted last month, October 2011 for Breast Cancer Awareness. Part of the proceeds went to the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund.

The bottle is full of energy with a mix of floral, fruity and sweet.

The perfume net weighted 100 ml at $95 on http://www.hanaemoriparfums.com. The signature butterfly was painted on the outside packaging.

After spraying it, I shook my arm a bit and put my nose up to to decipher the scent. Before I even got close I already got the whiffs of sweetness from it. I thought to myself, it is definitely sweet. The mixed floral scent and the vanilla really struck. 10 minutes passed by and I started documenting what it felt like to my nose, since it had settled down a bit by then. The vanilla and a bit of floral (not that much anymore) along with a bit of a toffee or caramel candy arose. I was already craving candy especially something like caramel pecan. The scent lasted a good 4 hours, maybe even longer but that’s when it wasn’t that evident anymore.

Besides smelling divine, the bottle is also unique on its own with a pink organza inside the glass sculptural cap. Each Hanae Mori’s cap has a different colored organza and this one happened to be pink! I guess it was to signify BCA month.

Aside from the distinctive sweetness of this perfume, it brought back an old memory of mine. The smell was like Japanese Azuki (red bean) that I use to eat when I was a little kid. I remembered it because my grandma use to make sweet red beans and I love to eat them. It did kind of remind me of grandma as well. It felt so warm…

    This perfume does smell really sweet and lovely, but my favorite is still the butterfly.
