Shiseido was founded by Arinobu Fukuhara in 1872. A former pharmacist of the Japanese navy, Fukuhara was unhappy with the quality of pharmaceuticals being sold to the public, and in response, he opened the Shiseido Pharmacy. This avant-garde, largely research-and-development-oriented pharmacy introduced Japan to western-style pharmaceuticals at a time when traditional herbal medicine was still mainstream. The pioneering spirit of the company, combined with western science and business technology, helped it grow to become one of Japan's oldest companies and continues to serve as the underlying philosophy of Shiseido
today. At FragranceX, we're glad to be able to bring our customers the captivating fragrances of Shiseido at the lowest prices, making these designer products affordable.
Since 1965, Shiseido fragrances have had a reputation for being complex and alluring, layering light florals with green accents and deep, intense base notes to create scents that straddle the line between traditional and modern. The first Shiseido perfume, Zen, is meant to embody the Japanese philosophy. A collection of bright florals including hyacinth, galbanum, and mimosa grounded with deeper woody notes of cedar and sandalwood exemplified the Zen philosophy of rejecting dualism
. Reformulated in 2007, the rebirth of the classic Shiseido perfume is a fruity mix of tart grapefruit and pineapple, bright rose, white florals, and spicy, sultry lotus. It retains the base notes of cedar and sandalwood but melds them with smoky incense and fresh pine. The overall scent is sparkling yet sultry, calling to mind warm spring days spent in exotic locations.
After the successful relaunch of its signature scent, Shiseido sought to create a version that retained the character of Zen while working well with more masculine scents. The Shiseido cologne Zen debuted in 2009 and is a pared-down version of the reformulated Zen for women. Stripped of many of its white florals and fruity top notes, Zen cologne retains the citrus burst of bergamot and orange while adding the fresh sweetness of pear and violet. Balancing the sweetness is spicy nutmeg and honey-like rhododendron, all layered over deep musk and leather.
