The youngest of the classic collection created in 1906, Shem-el-Nessim is Arabic for inhaling the breeze and is inspired by an Egyptian festival celebrating springtime.
Shem-el-Nessim is a languid breeze slowly carrying soft and perfumed air over the Nile.
Bergamot and neroli give Shem-el-Nessim a citrus edge that gives way to a prominent powdery orris in the heart notes. Geranium, rose, jasmine and ylang-ylang give a delicate floral lift to the heart notes.
Sweet vanilla, musk, heliotrope and cedarwood give Shem-el-Nessim a dusky, gossamer base.
