Seeking info on Shiseido "White Rose" and "Suzuro"
Both appear to be Japan-only fragrances (?) and are shockingly expensive. (So of course I'm intrigued.) Chandler Burr rhapsodized about White Rose in a 2005 article, although he did not mention any notes. Suzuro is jasmine, rose, hyacinth, daffodil, orange blossom, and mimosa; sounds like a heavenly white floral. Has anyone smelled either of these? Are they so exquisite as to justify jaw-dropping prices, or is it just hype? Any shred of information would be much appreciated.
