Xyrena is a compound of two terms - XY (the male and female chromosomes) and RENA (from the Latin word renascor which means "to be renewed or reborn). It also means “enchanter” in Old Greek. The company specializes in cruelty-free and vegan products certified by PETA, Leaping Bunny and Vegan Awareness Foundation. Xyrena describes itself as "a defiant cosmetics startup that includes the world's first celebrity-partnered on-demand perfumery."
According to Xyrena's website: Neon Sunset is named after bright aromatics and cityscapes set amidst a backdrop of apocalyptic orange clouds caused by a preceding storm and metropolitan air pollutants. It is the definitive urban rain fragrance and was inspired by Xyrena perfumer Killian Wells’ bicoastal love of moody evening storms in New York City and Los Angeles.
Designed to be as linear as possible, Neon Sunset is a dense, sweet and intoxicating fragrance featuring notes of ozone, phenolic tar and asphalt, earthy borneol, leather, and musk and a floral accord of gardenia, heliotrope, acacia, ylang-ylang, and indole, topped with a refreshing cucumber and red apple fruit accord, all polished with a finishing touch of aromatic Hedione.
Neon Sunset is an extrait de parfum.
