Behique is Renier's "Hello world, I have arrived!" fragrance, so it's rather fascinating that it has achieved distinction as a finalist at the 2020 Art & Olfaction Awards. Behique is a luxurious fragrance of strong character, inspired by the type of person who has achieved a level of success at which there's nothing left to prove. A person who can revel in hedonism, enjoying the fruits of his/her labor.
A strong green opening, cannabis and basil immediately provide an air of relaxation, as though you've come home from a long trip to some exotic location, settling back into a favorite chair and exhaling. Soft anise, sweetened amber and smooth woody notes create a soothing and inviting ambience, while a base of tobacco takes you into the night.
While Behique was created with a man in mind, it hasn't stopped the ladies from purchasing full bottles. We wouldn't talk any gender out of sampling this beauty, at the very least.
