Mancera Hindu Kush Perfume by Mancera, Introduced in 2018, Mancera Hindu Kush is a men’s and women’s Oriental woody fragrance. Great for year-round wear, but especially for fall nights, this perfume starts with tope notes of cannabis, incense, spices, and labdanum. Patchouli leaf and woody notes make up the middle notes while vanilla pod, white musk, guaiac wood, and amber finish this collaboration. The sillage ranges from moderate to enormous while the longevity is very long lasting.
Mancera is a niche perfume house founded by Pierre Montale, who opened his first perfume boutique at the Place Vendome in Paris, France, near the Champs Elysees. The first fragrance was created in 2008, as a collaboration between Montale and his daughter Amelie, who became artistic director in 2017. While Montale has deep knowledge of the Far East and training with master perfumers, Amelie is a photographer and visual artist who grew up understanding and enjoying her father’s creations.
