Could it really be that the Persimmon fruit was the inspiration for the artist Christo?
When looking at the images in this article, we thought ‘maybe’.
There are certainly some striking similarities.
During the persimmon drying season the prefecture in Kansai, Wakayama (Japan) turns orange.
The farms of 70 farmers in Katsuragi resemble the installation of Christo and Jeanne-Claude called “The Gates” in New York in 2005. Orange curtains create ‘gates’ in Central Park.
The similarity with the town in Japan is indeed surprising, when it dresses in orange to celebrate a good harvest of persimmon.
In Japan, the Persimmon, the fruit, also symbolizes ‘longevity’, as the tree has a long life.
Enjoy reading the fragrance description:
This richly aromatic and spicy accord opens with hints of Pomegranate and Cranberry,
then flows into a warm heart of Chestnut, Nutmeg, Cinnamon and Clove,
to finally rest on a base of Vanilla Pods and drieg Figs, Dates and beautiful Persimmons.
