Shiseido — Fragrance Stories

— Fragrance Stories

Exhibits of Corporate Culture

March 26th (Tue) to July 28th (Sun), 2013

Shiseido's first president, Shinzō Fukuhara, was among the first Japanese of the early 20th century to appreciate European perfumes. His thinking on such fragrances helped modern Japan develop a true perfume industry that would eventually contribute a variety of distinct new fragrances of its own. Fukuhara's thinking on perfume-making embraced the traditional designs and spirit of Japan, but also integrated stylish European designs as well. Shiseido has continued developing this approach to create a unique fragrance style that weaves together the truest essences of East and West.
This exhibition highlighted the spirit of Shiseido's perfume creation and the cultural significance of such fragrances in general, while also showing some of the richness that perfumes can bring into our lives.
