THE JAPANESE are intent on continuing their world domination of the more discriminating olfactory senses. Yohji Yamamoto is the latest designer due to launch a perfume - in 1996 with backing from Jean Patou Parfums.

With a typically self-deprecating approach, his aim is 'to design a scent for women who don't like perfume'.

It will join the equally ethereal and elusive perfume by Issey Miyake, L'Eau d'Issey, a watery, pale, light and almost-not-there scent and Comme des Garcons' medicinal drug of a perfume called simply Comme des Garcons.
