Encens Chembur - EdP



Originally a picnic spot outside of Mumbai, Chembur is the place where Byredo founder Ben Gorham’s mother was born and raised. Ben visited Chembur many times as a child and returned after almost 15 years to find the area developed. Lingering still, however, was the evocative incense from a Hindu temple.

Encens Chembur opens up with a spicy yet fresh accord. The freshness springs from bergamot and elemi and the spicy heart is filled with temple incense and ginger. The base notes are slightly darker in character in order to balance the sweetness of the fragrance. Encens Chembur works all year around but is often more popular in winter.
