    Perfume always introduce themselves to their fans in
    the same way at the beginning of a live show or
    vlog. They each introduce themselves individually,
    and then usually Nocchi will initiate a catch phrase
    they say in unison. Complete the following:
    "Kashiyuka desu. A-chan desu. Nocchi desu . . . "
    Mina-san, konnichiwa! [Hey, everybody!]
    San ni awasete Pafyuumu desu! [The three of us together are Perfume!]
    Yoroshiku onegai shimasu! [Thanks so much in advance!]
    Hajimemashite yo! [So glad to meet you!]
    Pafyuumu pawaa! [Perfume power!]

    How did Perfume come up with their group name?
    It was the only name they could all agree upon.
    The creator of the group logo was testing out the typeface he created for them. He showed them a sample and Perfume was one of the English words he chose. They all agreed it looked the best and adopted it on a trial basis, but the place-holder name stuck!
    Perfume didn't come up with the name themselves, their manager thought it sounded marketable.
    Each of the original members had the character for fragrance in their given names.
    It's simple. They all love perfume!

    Though technically the girls' major label debut is
    Game, before this album, the girls came out with a
    compilation of most of their previous singles and
    b-sides. As the album arguably contains some of
    Perfume's best songs and does have some semblance of continuity owing to the fact it was produced
    entirely by Nakata Yasutaka, many Perfume fans
    consider this compilation to be Perfume's true first
    album. What is this compilation called?
    Perfume: Complete Best
    Total Perfume
    The Very Best of Perfume
    Perfume: The Singles Collection
    So Far: The Best of Perfume
