BYREDO – Kabuki Perfume – Gypsy Water
This product is currently sold out.
The word Kabuki historically refers to traditional Japanese theater.
A rich blend of music, dance, mime, and spectacular staging and costuming, Kabuki has been a major theatrical form in Japan for almost four centuries. There, the kabuki brush, was used to apply the white powder rice uniformly on the entire face.
In modern Japanese, the word is written with three characters: ka, signifying “song”; bu, “dance”; and ki, “skill.”
Inspired by the refinement of this extremely codified form of theatre and the traditional brushes used by Japanese actors to
apply their make-up, BYREDO has created a new perfume gesture
