In eighteenth century Japanese culture, the yuzu bath became a tradition on the winter solstice. Heated water would be filled with dozens of yuzu fruits, bobbing and scenting the air into a grove of citric steam. Many public bath and hot springs still carry out the practice today, believing the yuzu ritual on the shortest day of the year wards off illness and brings good luck. While a trip to Japan to chase away the winter blues may be a bit pricey for most of us, a splash of the irrepressibly sunny and sophisticated Heeley Paris Note de Yuzu offers a midwinter tonic sparkling enough to make you smile at the glowering sky, and sophisticated enough to make you feel sleek in a down puffer. Perfumer James Heeley created Heeley Paris Note de Yuzu for Maison Kitsuné, a Paris-based hybrid line of fashion and music founded by architect Masaya Kuroki and former Daft Punk manager Gildas Loaëc. The perfume is intended to be “a multicultural blend of English, French and Japanese notes.”
