Only 30 bottles of this huile de parfum have been produced, and 100 percent of the proceeds are donated to the White Helmets, the Syrian Civil Defense:
The volunteers save people on all sides of the conflict - pledging commitment to the principles of “Humanity, Solidarity, Impartiality” as outlined by the International Civil Defense Organization. This pledge guides every response, every action, every life saved - so that in a time of destruction, all Syrians have the hope of a lifeline.
The White Helmets mostly deal with the aftermath of government air attacks. Yet they have risked sniper fire to rescue bodies of government soldiers to give them a proper burial.
Bakers, tailors, engineers, pharmacists, painters, carpenters, students and many more, the White Helmets are volunteers from all walks of life. Many have paid the ultimate price for their compassion - 166 have been killed while saving others.
As well as saving lives the White Helmets deliver public services to nearly 7 million people, including reconnecting electrical cables, providing safety information to children and securing buildings. They are the largest civil society organization operating in areas outside of government control, and their actions provide hope for millions.
Watching the events unfold in Syria moved me through stages of anger, grief, sorrow, and compassion. I felt compelled to do something – anything – to help the people of Syria who continue to suffer a never-ending nightmare. And so I created this fragrance with the express intent to donate all proceeds to an organization that can do what I am not able.
REZIN OF JOY celebrates the flowers of Syria (carnation, jasmine, and rose) and honors the foundation of Arabic perfumes (oud, amber, and musk). The title of this fragrance comes from Muslimgauze and King Rezin of Aram (Syria).

Inspired by Muslimgauze
Muslimgauze was a music project of Bryn Jones (17 June 1961 – 14 January 1999), a British ethnic electronica and experimental musician who was influenced by conflicts in the Muslim world, with an emphasis on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. With dozens of albums released under the Muslimgauze name, Jones was prolific, but his mainstream success was limited due in part to his work being issued mostly in limited editions on small record labels. His music was described by one critic as “among the most startling and unique in the noise underground.”
