Violet colored rice powder on an elegant face. Enamel violets, cigarettes, Victorian silk and velvet, Pygmalion, Nureyev, shades of mauve. A collision of natural, rough, artificial, delicate. The narrative snapshots of photographer Hiromix.

From Regime des Fleurs
A mauve-filtered witness of a Kyoto university student’s starched suit. Contemplative, soft, layered powdered and floral elements. A delicate secret tucked behind teeth.

From Alia Raza
Himitsu, meaning “secret” is a love letter to Kyoto, penned by Christopher and addressed to me. We’d shared a fondness for Japan and I was moved by the scenes of Kyoto he’d paint in my mind while encouraging me to visit. Together we dreamt up a character: a quiet, contemplative student. Genderless, richly layered, someone subtle in nature but sure to make their mark. And from there the fragrance was born.

We do not accept returns of perfumes, simply because perfumes can't be resold once they've been opened and used. We encourage you to order samples before purchasing full bottles of perfume. And here's the good news — with every sample purchased, we'll send you a coupon code that allows you to redeem the cost of the sample and sample shipping if you buy a full bottle of the fragrance you tried (in other words, you get $10 off).

Please contact orders@ministryofscent.com if you have a question or issue related to your order or shipping.

Sample Orders

Samples are designed to help you evaluate scents you might want to later purchase as a full bottle. You may order one sample per fragrance, up to 15 total in a single order. Samples are non-refundable.

For sample orders, please check your packing slip for a special code that will allow you to redeem the price of samples and sample shipping when purchase full bottles of the scents you sample ($10 off full bottles).

Complimentary Samples

We provide complimentary samples with $75+ full bottle purchases. You may request up to 3 samples with any qualifying order. Please use the Order Note section on the Shopping Cart overlay to let us know which complimentary samples you would like. We'll try to provide the scents you've requested, but substitutions may occur if items are out of stock. 

Customer Reviews

Based on 2 reviews

The scent is exquisite! Truly. What’s equally as impressive is how quickly I received my order! It was shipped off to me same day and at my mail box in about a day and a half. Wow! Will be purchasing all my fragrances from Ministry of Scent from now on.

Unique and Beautiful

I try to refrain from describing fragrances as beautiful unless they really wow me. This is a beautiful fragrance. The violet candy opening is soft, coy, floral, and ever so slightly sweet. The violet compliments the rice powder so well. As it dries, the suede and saffron appear to make this light as a feather scent slightly more grounded. I absolutely recommend this if you want a fragrance that is unique and beautiful.
