Woody, Spicy, Leathery

Nothing is Everything.

 

FULL DESCRIPTION

Do not believe what you first see... under the demureness of the name, the spicy savour of blackcurrant bays and the musky notes of blonde suede. Rien is a second skin perfume, a perfume that clings to the body and perseveres in the mind. Like venial sin on the verge of becoming mortal, irresistible and resolutely pervasive. As light as mohair and as precious as cashmere, the fragrance envelops skin with a powdered caress. It has the meticulous elegance and hypnotic beauty of a modern Dorian Gray, in a feminine/masculine version.

An entrancing fragrance that leaves an unforgettable imprint. Utter charm, utterly charismatic. The vanilla/opium accord of the drydown reinforces the addiction. Rien is an essential.

A perfumer’s confession.

Some of my favorite smells are gasoline, sharpies, rubbing alcohol, basements, musty closets, etc. I would put this scent in that category, but I don't want that to put anyone off. This perfume is beautiful. It is rich, heavy, and incensey. It has an oiliness to it, and if worn in public, I think would give the impression that you work in some kind of auto shop. That said, I think it would be perfect for sweltering summer afternoons in the city.

My first "love at first sniff"

Whenever I've felt the need to wear fragrance, I have always just worn whatever-- something gifted and generic from some second rate designer brand. Rien was the start of my love affair with fragrance. At the top, it makes its presence known in a love-it-or-hate-it fashion, then dries down to become an unmistakable scent of sex and confidence. Sillage and longevity second to few if any. From now on, no matter the situation, I will feel comfortable wearing "nothing."

Triangulating perfection

Unique scent, well made, competitively priced--EldO does it again! Rien is a weirdo futurist's homage to Chanel; aldehydic floral luxury underpinned by a rubbery naughty leather.

This is a gorgeous perfume! I'm glad I didn't have anything to do the first time I tried it because all I wanted to do after the first smell was lay back to enjoy the ride. This is the best incense type perfume I have ever worn. While the incense keeps a constant tone, there's a play of other, more delicate florals, that rise up and fade out through the story the perfume tells.
