Many packages are delivered to my desk with new products, but when my boyfriend and I have to argue over who gets to keep this small 15ml bottle that came in from Berlin, it deserves an extra special mention. I love it the most after a couple of hours, when it has faded into something very subtle and delicate. A woody, spicy and very far away flowery scent.
Hien Le’s first fragrance is unisex, feels extremely luxe and is simply titled Hien Le Nº1. Made by perfumer Mark Buxton, who’s work you’ve might have smelled in bottles from Versace, Givenchy or Paco Rabanne. To get back to the subject of debut fragrances, Mark Buxton also created the very first Comme des Garçons fragrance.
Still it is undecided to who’s closet the little bottle will go to, this might be the first fragrance I have to share with my boyfriend. Availability is limited, but you can still get it here.
