Grossmith Shem-el-Nessim Eau de Parfum, 100ml
Grossmith, one of the oldest English perfume houses in family ownership, has remastered three fragrances for their Classic collection, using original hand-written formulae from the early 1900s. These bewitching scents, remastered for the twenty-first century, still take perfume lovers on a journey not only in place, but also in time.
Grossmith fragrances are presented in elegant reeded glass bottles with distinctive signature caps housed in exquisite hand-made display boxes which are all made in England.
Arabic for ‘smelling the breeze’.
A rich, powdery Floral composition on a soft, sensual base, this fragrance reprises the original orris formula using Florentine iris, known for its rarity and expense, costing three times more than gold bullion.
Soft citrus notes are seamlessly blended with an opulent heart of flowers: Rose, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang and powdery Orris, which lend a warm enveloping quality to this sophisticated composition. Patchouli, Cedarwood and Sandalwood combined with Heliotrope, Vanilla and Musk result in a truly luxurious fragrant experience.
Originally created in 1906, this rich, luxurious creation typifies the Edwardian era with its warm, soft, powdery character.
