Perfume started in 2000 as a pop-group from Actors School in their hometown of Hiroshima. The trio is composed of Ayaka “A~chan” Nishiwaki, Yuka “Kashiyuka” Kashino, and Ayano “NOCCHi” Omoto.  They first debuted their first single “OMJINAI Perori” in March 2002.

The trio released the single “Polyrhythm” in 2007 which was made for NHK‘s recycling campaign.  This song marked their national fame as it peaked at #4 at the Daily Oricon charts and #7 on the weekly Oricon Charts. Perfume released their first studio album entitled “GAME” which reached #1 on the Oricon Charts upon release, making them the first techno-pop group in Japan to achieve this feat.


In 2012, Perfume had their first international tour which were held in Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea and Singapore. They were also invited to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in 2013, where they received a Silver Lion for their presentation “Perfume Global Site Project” and performed a special version of “Spending All My Time”, Perfume’s first English-language single released the year prior.

Aside from this year’s world tour, the group will also release their 20th single entitled “Cling Cling” on July 16.
