Shiseido Ever Bloom's undeniably feminine bottle encases a wealth of history and enigma that you might not know of. As per every fragrance created by the brand, it is an olfactory ode to femininity and the muse—that is, a woman. But Ever Bloom's outstanding characteristic is the exquisite karasuka, a stylized arabesque that's a unique icon of the house since 1915. A symbol of happiness that has since existed in the Middle Ages, it represents the beauty of life and the importance of art in creation, easily adopted as an expression for the idea of radiant beauty.

 

"When creating Shiseido Ever Bloom, I wanted to bring a new fresh sensuality, a new petal blooming sensation that will leave an unforgettable impression. I imagined a transparent floral heart, clean and natural," says perfumer Aurélien Guichard. "An abstract flower that you can’t quite identify, a flower with a “blurred” outline. I think this fragrance is about serenity, happiness, sensuality."

Shiseido Ever Bloom: A unique olfactory expression for the modern woman

The Ever Bloom was created with the modern woman in mind, one who is confident yet holds an immense potential of beauty. Like its scent, the perfume imparts a new floral expression that the karakusa captures artistically—its curved lines also symbolize the contours of a feminine body. The bottle's cap also features another signature of the house, with camellia branches engraved in glass.

 

But another highlight of the Ever Bloom that makes it unique is its linear fragrance structure. One that is distinct from the usual pyramid structures, its upper accords consist of Bulgarian rose oil, jasmine and a blend of lotus; the center accords being Tunisian orange blossom and gardenia, while the base leaves a trail of hinoki wood and musk.
