visvim Subsection Room Spray No. 04 & 05

i was able to get my hands on 2 of visvim's room sprays, though they're really hard to get outside of Japan, except for visvim's F.I.L. locations. for those who not know, you can also use them as regular perfumes as visvim marketed them as room sprays to avoid import regulations. i got scent No. 04 / GRASS which resembles freshly mowed grass and scent No. 05 / NEW BORN which has a sweet but very subtle smell like caramel, milk & peach. produced by renowned french perfumer Blaise Mautin with a minimalist packaging, these fit nicely into visvim's product range. i also have a spare No. 05 which can be bought here.

"To this very day, there are few brands more iconic within streetwear than Stüssy. And there are none that have exhibited the same staying power as the Californian-born label. Few of its peers are seen as such an enduring signifier of underground culture so many decades on. Almost chameleon-like in its ability to blend into cultures right across the globe, Stüssy has meant many different things to many different people throughout its three-and-a-half decade lifespan, with the only common thread being a uniquely independent spirit..."
