Shem-el-Nessim – Arabic for ’smelling the breeze’

Wrap yourself in this beautiful sultry scent evoking feelings of joy and comfort like a warm coat in winter.

The first notes are soft greenery, florals, followed by the marzipan-like heliotrope in all its glory, The sillage comes again and again for hours: luxurious, warm, inviting and powdery. The whole melts perfectly into the orientalised elements in the base, almost ambery: sandalwood, musk and vanilla.

Notes: bergamot, neroli, geranium, jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang, orris, musk, patchouli, cedar, sandalwood, heliotrope and vanilla

The original Shem-el-Nessim came out in 1906, signifying the fêted femininity of the Edwardian era. The perfume was named after a Springtime festival held on the Nile in Egypt.
