A beautiful amber fragrance from the house of Nishane
Many thanks to Niklas for the manufacturer's sample of Zenne :-) This is a really nice women's fragrance, which probably also works great in the colder season. The durability is really good with 9 to 10 hours and the sillage doesn't need to hide either.

The top note starts with lots of rhubarb, a fruity sweetness and a hint of blackcurrant. The heart note has a floral scent of rose water and gardenia. Sandalwood still resonates in the background and brings balsamic, creamy and sweetish notes to the fragrance. These aromas are underpinned in the base thanks to ambergris. There are also wonderful notes of bourbon vanilla.

In the end, this is a fragrance that I could imagine having in my bottle collection if the price wasn't quite so high. But if there is a good offer, this purchase could happen at some point.

Dark, fruity, sweet, irresistible...
This is so stunning! Thick, jammy red fruits, vanilla and a mysterious darkness in the background. This is not as tart and fresh as the rhubarb, black currant and grapefruit might suggest, it's a heavy, substantial perfume. All the fruits are noticeable, especially the black currant, but they smell like they were cooked down into a sweet jam together with plush red rose petals. It smells like berries, too, not only currants, even though I can't say which berries exactly. There is a lot of vanilla in the base, so this is warm and inviting. But there is also a bitterness in the background that I can't quite put my finger on, and something lush and balsamic that really elevates the scent. Not sure where all this is coming from, maybe the ambergris, maybe something not in the notes list.

This is my favorite by Nishane so far. Ani and Hundred Silent Ways were nice, but Zenne is unique and fits my taste perfectly. If you like the darker side of sweet and fruity scents, you need to try it and see for yourself.

In my opinion it's ultra feminine and voluptuous, like red lipstick as a scent. No, I don't mean that this smells like lipstick, it doesn't, but it has the same effect. Of course anyone can wear whatever they want regardless of gender, but this is definitely not your typical unisex scent.

Zenne
Zenne, which represents the character of a beautiful and flirtatious woman. Honestly, when testing the scented pyramid, I was afraid of blackcurrants because I don't like them so special in perfumes. Currant is very irritating to me in some perfumes and is on the verge of tolerance. After the first application, grapefruit and currants are noticeable in the opening, but currant is not unpleasant. It seems to me that not even 5 minutes have passed and the wonderful vanilla has entered the scene. It is the same vanilla that I smelled in Hundred Silent Ways,soft and velvety. Nishana's house stands out for the special vanilla they use in their perfumes. It is soft and silky vanilla, not too sweet at all. You could bathe in vanilla like that. After a while, you notice the scent of a rose mixed with vanilla and sandalwood. Zenne is a beautiful and flirty perfume. Zenne is beautiful, lovely, elegant, graceful and a bit flirtatious.
Top notes : grapefruit, rhubarb and blackcurrant.
Heart of the perfume: Gardenia, Turkish rose and sandalwood.
Perfume base: amber, vanilla and musk.

Femininity Overload
As everyone is giving attention to Ani, I decided to write a review about this perfume that stays in the shadows, which is almost the source of its inspiration (shadow puppetry). I hope I give the perfume the description it deserves and to you all a good picture of it.

The Brand:
Nishane has become one of my favorite brands. Their perfumes smell quality, they have a great performance and I blame them for raising my standards in perfumes. After I bought their perfumes, I see one of another brand of the same price and I m like “I would better buy a Nishane in this price”. Why? Because they are quality perfumes they smell amazing.

The story behind the perfume:
I love it when a perfume is inspired by something and I get that something from smelling it. Nishane has released 3 perfumes inspired by traditional shadow puppetry characters: Karagoz, Hacivat and Zenne. First two are male characters so the perfumes are masculine (Karagoz could be unisex) and third character is female so the perfume is a feminine perfume. Zenne in the puppetry, is a woman who is a symbol of beauty, confidence, she achieves what she wants at any cost and she is desired by every man. And this is exactly the feeling of this perfume.

The smell:
Dreamy, seductive, sexy, feminine, OMG it’s a masterpiece! It’s a fruity floral vanilla scent that doesn’t change with time. You get what you smell from the first spray, it just becomes more smooth with time. You get that sour smell of a grapefruit, with the intensity of the gardenia and the rose on a soft bed of sweet vanilla and musk.

The performance:
The performance is unique! On skin, it smells for hours and on clothes it smells for days.

Season/ Occasion
I have bought this fragrance on November and I am wearing it since then with cold weather and it responds amazing, but I believe that it is a fragrance for spring summer and early autumn. I personally don’t enjoy wearing it with a sweater because it gives me different vibes, more fresh, more delicate, more elegant. I could wear it on winter for an occasion with a silk dress and high heels. So, about the occasion, on spring and summer you can wear it at any occasion and on autumn and winter only on occasion when you are dressed more formal. It smells femininity.

Conclusion:
It is an amazing perfume for a woman. Its totally worth buying it. It totally stays in my collection for looooong!!!

Thank you for your time.

If you ask me to pick notes for a basic fruity floral femme this is probably what I would come up with. Disappointing from the house

Delina on steroids with a sharp ruhbarb note and slightly animalic nuances due to the ambergris and musk. For boss ladies or femme fatales.
