The answer is Tenere.
A vegetarian, an architect, a metaphysical philosopher, an author of the page-turner Journey (From One Life To Another)
, a weirdo and a huge talent whose designs are the iconic imagery of the space-age! It is all Paco Rabanne. Tenere
was created in 1988 by the nose of Pierre Wargnye and has a lot of olfactory notes in it -- on top of the famous metallic Paco Rabanne note: lemon, mandarin, osmanthus, hyacinth, verbena, lavender, thyme, anise, myrtle, artemisia, cinnamon, cardamom, basil, pimento, rose, iris, neroli, sandalwood, vetiver, patchouli, musk. But they do not make this fragrance "too busy", they make it deliciously floriental instead!
I am not sure if the world will see more fragrances from Paco Rabanne, as the house was bought out by the Spanish tycoon of Puig in the year 2000, and now it just has the name but not the same master-mind behind its creations.
Tenere is also a desert within the desert in Africa, where the sacred acacia-type tree was miraculously growing for many many years before it was vandalized and eventually died. It is also the name of a bike Yamaha created for the Dakkar rally.
Thanks again to everybody for reading and participating. Please stay connected for Question # 11, an easy one, and in good spirits! That's what Paco would love us to do anyway! ;D
