Senyokô - La Tsarine - eau de parfum
Experience your wildest fantasies with La Tsarine, an unapologetically erotic perfume with cumin, honey, sensual flowers and animal notes.
Catherine the Great remains one of the most important and truly fascinating rulers of the Russian Empire. Her diplomatic pursuits, intelligence and determination are well documented, no more so than her boudoir conquests. As with any great leader, her legacy is punctuated by fact and fiction. Most accounts are indeed true, but many are simply hearsay, murmuring in hallways, now urban legend.
It is widely accepted that Catherine the Great’s love of glory was equal only to her love of men. Catherine the Great lived her life to the fullest, her lifestyle was luxurious to the point of excess, indulging in extravagancies few could rival and living out her wildest fantasies.
Senyokô’s La Tsarine portrays Catherine the Great’s most notable characteristics in equal measure - her power, intellect and diplomacy as a ruler and her intimacy, confidence and licentiousness as a lover. Both facets of her personality are beautifully balanced in this conceptually bold and shockingly divisive fragrance.

La Tsarine by Senyokô is, possibly, the most exuberant and ravaging perfume I’ve smelled in a long time. It starts with a melange of honey, flowers and cumin, quite sweet but not in a gourmand way, this is closer to a kind of sweetness you can find in nature. The mix of cumin and animalic notes (civet and castoreum) gives the composition a decadent but luscious fleshy undertone. Hats off to the perfumists for creating such a beautiful and unique piece of art.
