Paraportiani reminds us of the incense wafted around at religious ceremonies, it brings up memories of eastern rituals and precious woods burned to yield intense aromas. Its distinctive notes take us on a ride through white Cycladic alleyways, mesmerised by a characteristic, sacred skyline. Basking in blinding daytime light, we soon find ourselves ready for a seductive nightlife.
