Symrise signs Matcha Meditation for Maison Margiela

Head: green tea, bergamot; heart: matcha, orange blossom, jasmine; base: Siam benzoin, moss accord: Matcha Meditation is a composition created by Alexandra Carlin and Maurice Roucel, perfumers at Symrise for Maison Margiela.

"Inspired by a meditation session on a bright, beautiful afternoon, enjoying a cup of traditional Japanese matcha tea, Matcha Meditation is an invitation to focus on the present moment, enjoy every gesture and awaken the senses."says Symrise.

Created by Alexandra Carlin and Maurice Roucel, this fragrance evokes the feeling of complicity between body and mind experienced after a yoga session. An emblematic ingredient of the Japanese tea ceremony, matcha is the only tea where the whole leaf is consumed, multiplying the benefits of green tea.
