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”.

    Spice has the satisfaction of being a spicy shit, after it's gone, a sense of accomplishment. Party Maker is a big long shit, so same satisfaction. Mirai is runny post candy slop, nothing exciting cept stains in your underwear.

    v couldn't agree more. v v most random and pointless reason to hate a song ever.

    To be honest Spice is nothing more than a random piece of shit tune with a hugely annoying synth aimlessly playing in the background. Party Maker without the vocal parts is probably the most awfully boring and directionless song they ever made (the parts from 1:30 to 3:00, and 4:30 to 7:20, anyone? they only ruin the momentum). Mirai no Museum is well-written, joyful and nostalgic, and thanks to your awful opinions I reckon it as one of the most underrated songs I know.

    You guys don't even know what dubstep is if you think Sweet Refrain has dubstep - which it doesn't have at all.

    I don't see the problem with Sweet Refrain. They made an attempt by using dubstep and honestly they did a good job. They didn't overdo it. And I don't even like dubstep.

    At least Sweet Refrain was a funny attempt of dubstep, imo it's a cute af... MnM in the other hand is probably being used as a torture device by the C.I.A. I know I'd give them anything they want after the 3rd play ANYTHING!

    Overcome Mirai no Museum, Sweet Refrain is the worst flop.

    idk, MnM is probably my favourite from L3. it's fun and not boring in the slightest. not sure what all y'all are on about.

    Yeah sure, I disagree with you so I'm obviously trolling, right? Or maybe I'm not.

    @flyingwill you're obviously trolling bc nobody is that stupid to slander a lyrical and visual masterpiece like Spice and a banger like Party Maker. MnM has none of the aforementioned is just flat out boring, is not even cute. Everytime I accidentally play it makes me wanna punch someone.
