Discovering Miya Shinma

Discovering Miya Shinma Birth and childhood in the city of Shizuoka, surrounded by verdant nature and pure waters.

Studies in Kyoto, where the fleeting shadow of the grace, elegance, luxe and refinement of a distant past can still be felt today.

Arrival in Paris to immerse herself in the world of perfume, which she discovered by chance and fell in love with immediately.

Dividing her time between France and Japan, she begins the creation of scented objects and customized perfumes. She writes and lectures on the world of perfume.

Rediscovering her roots, she creates Miya Shinma – Parfums, inspired by the rich ancestral culture of perfume in Japan. The originality of this culture is preserved, for example, in the kodo incense ceremony.

The beauty of nature is expressed in Miya Shinma perfumes. In these fragrances, traditional Japanese culture and the rare essences specific to this country combine with precious scents from all over the world and convey a part of the beauty of Japan.

Miya Shinma's compositions are reminiscent of perfumes from a by-gone age and at the same time are imbibed with the modernity of present-day Japan.

Her creative work proceeds like a musical composition, an art form she practised at an early age: listening to the notes of fragrances and the harmonies obtained, she seeks the phrasing of an aromatic melody.
