The Perfumer's Notebook
Miyama—From The Heart
A love affair in life leading to a love affair in scent, Miyama was created as a gift of perfume to a loved one. Luxurious osmanthus flowers meet oriental oud in this fragrant feast of the very finest perfume ingredients.
The coriaceous undertone of oriental oud marries beautifully with osmanthus, an exotic flower redolent of ripe peaches and newly-cured leather and its distant relative (olfactorily speaking) the Parma violet adds a green-leaf freshness to the whole.
A touch of spice adds warmth to the heart while amber and incense bring allure and mystery to the base. The classic combination of patchouli and vanilla adds sweetness and masculine floralcy right the end of the life of the scent.
Burnt woods and ten-year-aged earthy patchouli are tempered by unctuous iris root butter and sweet ambers forming an extremely masculine and elegant dry down.
—Jamie Frater, Perfumer & Creative Director
Great scent. I sensed the depth and subtle complexity of the fragrance. It definitely sits in the upper pantheon of similar value fragrances. Though unfortunately not quite my style, back to the drawing board.
Wonderfully dynamic fragrance. Osmanthus takes center stage in opening -floral, fruity, and green. As it dries, the leather comes through more, and the iononic leather profile resides in a similar vein as TF Ombre Leather, but more balanced and less one-dimensional; complemented by slightly smoky incense and resinous wood.
Then after two or three hours, the resinous wood dries to a more desiccated wood, the oud starts to show, and the fragrance shifts again.
Very long-lasting, with great projection.
This is a very good interpretation of sensual leathery osmanthus with some good and deep saffron and oud, softened with a nice vanille, smooth incense and some buttery notes, that turn in something mysterious and very pleasable. Very long lasting and good for every occasions. Congratulations to Frater.
Thank you Ale! Saffron and oud are such a wonderful match; we use pure saffron in this fragrance. Miyama also has more osmanthus oil than any other scent on the market today! We hope you'll share the details if you wear Miyama for a special occasion.
