Scent of the day: Keiko Mecheri in Osmanthus

I love to discover niche brand perfumes, it is a passion I share with my husband. The only difference between us is that as soon as I smell a fragrance I can tell either I like it or not whereas he needs hours to make up his mind (and we usually get out of the shop with two or three different perfumes and a headache).

Lately I had a crush on Keiko Mecheri's Osmanthus, an intense and mesmerizing fragrance that is based on a heart of golden osmanthus, whose tiny flowers fill the air with a heart-piercing perfume when they bloom. Exotic, heady, with overtones of plum and apricot, their distinctive sweet scent is harmonized with soft, powdery datura, pearly tuberose and vibrant green notes.
