Takes me to church...

I grew up with the smell of the burning incense in Greek orthodox churches. Oh, that incense! Rien Intense Incense is all about that church feeling. It is a clean scent although it is slightly animalic, but the best animalic fragrance in the industry. I wear it for 6 years now and it is such a comforting scent, especially during days where my self-confidence is low, and Rien is there for me, just like GOD is there for those who praise him. It is so well-crafted, leans more on the masculine side as the best niche scents often do. Quite a sexy experience with Rien, especially when people ask me what I am wearing. Answering "nothing" has a strong meaning: Rien is the signature scent of those who do not merely love it but truly appreciate it because it has really become their own skin smell, such that the answer "nothing" is the daring truth. I love the original version as well, but this one is more sexy, refined and more churchy. A tribute to incense, leather and aldehyde. Because it is after all a clean scent, it is great for summer nights as well. I always ask myself: can you wear it all day, all night, all seasons... because wearing RIEN is no sin, it simply takes me to church!

Hey, patchouli can also have a green take-on, foresty, fresh, or maybe like a shadow. Victor Hygo's poetry fits this sent incredibly well. Not offensive at all, reminds me a bit of Perles de Lalique because of the rose-patchouli...

I have been after Private Label for a while. I always wanted to have a Cecile Zarokian piece of art. The first ever perfume I sampled from her creations was "Tango" from Masque Milano, and created an idea on her style of perfumery....
