aroma M fragrances are steeped in the ways of ancient Eastern fragrancing traditions, and while adhering to the Eastern mandate that beauty is a daily responsibility. Loving crafted by Maria McElroy, aroma M is ultra-modern in the use of unexpected ingredients and novel combinations of ingredients, such as lychee with rose, and white chestnut blossom with muguet.
Simultaneously contemplative and stimulating, these mysteriously soft-spoken but memorably beautiful unisex fragrances suit a range of lifestyles, from avant garde to casual to classic. They are, for example, eminently wearable with a rustling silk kimono, with a full, swirling skirt clasped by an obi, and with the classic scarlet lips and black-rimmed eyes of the made-up Geisha face, partially hidden by a wafting fan. But it is a tribute to aroma M's gender-neutral cross-cultural fluency that these scents also work like a charm with contemporary tunic dresses and stovepipe pants, and with the natural, well-scrubbed face of Western beauty.
This extends to their original packaging of utilitarian glass containers bedecked in phantasmagorically patterned Yuzen papers, handcrafted in Kyoto.
