A tangle of jungle greenery and luscious apricot osmanthus blossom, Panda is a fusion of flowers, vines and crunchy leaves. An unmistakable bamboo top note opens Panda followed by the sharp snap of Sichuan pepper, giving Panda a quiet exuberance.
In the mid-section, the smoky astringency of gunpowder tea and the coriander-like fragrance of zisu (shiso) leaf add texture and coolness. As it settles on the skin, an almost mossy vetiver and hints of fruit ground Panda’s treelike, woody notes, while light incense adds a contemplative air. Panda eventually settles down in a flower garden dizzy with the fruity, heady notes of orange blossom and lilies that filter around woodsy notes. Densely green and piquant, playful and elegant, Panda is a lovable charmer.
