    Default Shem-el-Nessim by Grossmith

    I was just here the other day sharing my enthusiasm for The Tuberuse Trilogy from Histoires de Parfums. Well I'm back to talk about Shem-el-Nessim from the relanched house of Grossmith. It seems Simon Yorke has discovered he's the great grandson from this well known house. His couisin still had the original formula books. I'm thinking to myself, I've experienced these long lost fromulas before, only to be let down. Not the case here. Mr. Yorke has done a fabulous job paying attention to detail, and using top notch ingredients.

    There are comparisons being made with L' Origan and L' Heure Bleue. I'm pleased to announce Shem-el-Nessim belongs in the same company. That's a very bold statement, but it's true. Picture L' Heure Bleue less loud and more sophisticated, and you'll begin to get a sense of it. Supposedly they're using Florentine Iris which is very expensive. (Smells expensive to me) One of the best compositions of iris and heliotrope to come along in many moons. This stuff is fit for a queen. I'm buying my Wife (My Queen) a bottle for Valentine's Day.

    Fascinating! Thanks! I've been hankering to sniff this line since its relaunched was trumpetted a couple of months ago in the British press. Your description sounds MOST alluring!
