SPRINGING UP: The French street artist known as Mademoiselle Maurice has dressed the bottle and outer packaging of Issey Miyake’s limited-edition spring fragrance, called City Blossom. Known for her brightly colored works, often made using origami paper in collages, she created a multihued flower for the box and what looks like floating petals for the flacon.
Mademoiselle Maurice also has been dressing the windows of Miyake’s flagships — just recently in Tokyo, London and Paris, with New York slated for this week — to mark the scent’s rollout.
Firmenich perfumer Alberto Morillas concocted the floral woody juice, which includes notes of pink pepper, lemon, magnolia, freesia, musks and woods.
About 170,000 bottles of the scent have been produced for sale worldwide.
Miyake’s fragrance licensee is Beauté Prestige International, a division of Shiseido.
