A very English interpretation of the classic Persian scent of hyacinths: a bright, clean, striking green-floral fragrance that is especially evocative on a summers day.
This is a smooth, strong interpretation of hyacinth – this naturally brash flower is here made easy to wear – in composing this scent we imagined blue hyacinths but couldn’t get the fragrance to go blue without bunging in a load of artificial colour, so green it is!
In this composition there is some very low-key white musk underneath to help the scent last and a little lemon on top to keep it bright, but nothing to interfere with the clear hyacinth scent. A perfect daytime fragrance that isn’t too sweet and can be worn by anyone.
The name by the way reflects the use of hyacinth in the traditional Persian / Iranian new year celebration as one of the Seven S’s or Haft Seen – the Persian name for hyacinth being sonbol.
