Shem-El-Nessim

Grossmith

Arabic for smelling the breeze

 

An Arabian Spring time festival celebrated in 
Egypt on the Nile

 

The current trend for Orris comes full circle with the rebirth of Shem-el-Nessim.

This fragrance reprises the original Orris formula, using Florentine iris, known for its rarity and expense, costing three times more than gold bullion.

 

Originally created in 1906, this rich, luxurious creation typifies the L’Origan style with its warm, soft, powdery, floral aspect. A scent which personifies the Edwardian era in which femininity was fêted.

 

Perfume (10ml and 100ml) and eau de parfum (50ml and 100ml)
