Biography

There are multiple artists named Perfume:

1) Perfume is a three-girl / group from Hiroshima, Japan who debuted locally in 2001 and nationally in 2005. In 2001, three 11-12 year old girls from an Artist School formed a group together in their hometown of Hiroshima primarily consisting of Yuka Kashino (Kashiyuka), Ayaka Nishiwaki (A-Chan) and Yūka Kawashima (“Kawayuka”). Because all three members had the Japanese character (香) for fragrance in their names, they named the group Perfume. Kawayuka soon left the group to pursue her studies and Ayano Omoto (“Nocchi”) took her place, invited by A-Chan. In 2002, they released two limited edition singles only in Hiroshima, called “OMAJINAI★ペロリ” and “彼氏募集中”. All three members moved to Tokyo in 2003 and became produced by 中田ヤスタカ. Between the years of 2003 and 2004, they produced “スウィートドーナッツ”, “モノクロームエフェクト”, and “ビタミンドロップ” under the indie label Bee-Hive Records. During that time, they performed to a one-man live three times. Because the girls were so energetic, fans acquired an appreciation for them.

It wasn’t until 2007 that Perfume gained attention, when their single “ポリリズム(Polyrhythm)” became the theme song for a nationwide recycling campaign. The day of its release, it hit number #4 on the Oricon charts and #7 for the weekly ranking, making this the first time Perfume reached the top 10. Almost overnight the group became a success, and to date they have sold nearly 60,000 copies of “ポリリズム”.

    Why complain about album mixes when you have single versions? Like, y'all will nitpick everything even though you have everything. Netizen TRASH

    LOL I'm really surprised my Perfume playcount is already over 17700.

    As a note: It's super exciting to play Perfume on Spotify. I remember when Asian music wasn't even on the radar a few years ago, and now their management is actually putting it out on a global network. It's really cool haha.
