I am always a sucker for incense perfumes, but on warmer days wearing them can be tricky. Smoke added to heat isn’t really becoming. I love most of the Commes de Garcon incense collection – they can project light and perfect for summer days. Byredo’s Encens Chembur is another good light one – it is not as resinous as other incense perfumes, and has a lot of citrus in it that makes it light and breezy. This has a not of ‘temple incense,’ and that is exactly what it smells like – it’s a contemplative and melancholy scent – you feel like you want to meditate or do yoga while wearing this. (It is named after a temple in rural India ) There are lemon-y notes and bergamot which frames it with a light color. It’s very Byredo – it fits with the rest of their line, as it smells niche-y and expensive. It’s also subtle and stays close to the skin – you will feel sexy wearing this. This would be perfect on a nice beach-y California summer evening, and I want it.
