Shiseido's newest fragrance taps the venerable company's heritage, with an aim to build its scent fortunes for the future.
While Shiseido's Beauté Prestige International handles most of the corporation's scent business — including designer licenses Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier and Narciso Rodriguez — Zen has been an integral part of Shiseido since 1964, said Heidi Manheimer, chief executive officer of Shiseido Cosmetics America. The decades-old original, a heavy floral, remains on sale, but the new introduction is lighter and "represents modern Japan," said Tomoko Yamagishi-Dressler, vice president of marketing for Shiseido Prestige Brands.
