My fragrance finder fave, Kimono Tsuya Eau De Toilette, is a dreamy floral musk. Delicate hints of magnolia, peony, amber, yuzu, and cedarwood blissfully unite in a fresh finish. I am swooning over this sensational aura; akin to my euphoria when strolling The Hakone Open-Air Museum in Japan.
Extracts of rose, golden silk, pearl, and aloe vera leaf in Kimono Tsuya Perfumed Body Lotion and Hand Cream nourish and soften skin for a healthy glow. Bonus: hyaluronic acid and phospholipids lock in moisture to protect your skin’s barrier.
Vintage notes of bergamot, Japanese plum, magnolia, vetiver, and vanilla handsomely harmonize in Kimono Rin Eau De Toilette. Earthy and floral, this distinctive scent invigorates personal strength and serenity.
Plant-powered ingredients (pearl, rose, aloe vera, silk) in Kimono Tin Perfumed Body Lotion and Hand Cream promote silky radiance and improve skin texture. Bask your body in aromatherapy for lustrous results.
An enchanting bouquet of iris, jasmine, rose, sandalwood, and citrus, Kimono Kihin Eau De Toilette is soft and romantic—a sensual and sophisticated perfume with timeless appeal.
A quartet of roses infuse Kimono Kihin Perfumed Body Lotion and Hand Cream with powerful antioxidants; aloe vera, pearl, and silk extracts hydrate; hyaluronic acid and phospholipids nurture your derma.
The essence of Kimono Yui Eau De Toilette evokes happiness. A spirited blend of neroli, rose, musk, pink pepper, and Sudachi (a mini yet mighty Japanese citrus similar to lime) has a vibrant springtime flair. It is an attitude adjuster in a bottle—just a few drops and I feel resplendent, like when I basked in the golden glow of Kinkaku-ji Temple in Kyoto.
Formulated with Decorté fragrance moisturizer key ingredients, Kimono Yui Perfumed Body Lotion and Hand Cream renew your skin with beneficial nutrients and abundant aromas. User-friendly containers make moisturizing a breeze, at home and on the go. Layer on the loveliness.
Inspired by the sacred lotus flower, Kimono Urara Eau De Toilette is charismatic and vitalizing. I am instantly refreshed by a bright and balanced bouquet. This luscious floral scent is enriched with melon, violet, Fuji apple, jasmine, and sandalwood.
Back for an encore in Kimono Urara Perfumed Body Lotion and Hand Cream, a brilliant formula of roses, golden silk, pearl, aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, and phospholipids replenishes dry and dull skin. Ideal consistency in the lotion and cream guarantees max hydration and luminosity without any greasy residue.

Travel-sized Kimono Tsuya and Kimono Yui will accompany me on my next journey (a friend’s wedding in Verona, Italy!). The fragrances will forever awaken memories of life’s treasured moments.
