Persian Prince - The Spring Flowers Collection - PWP Product


This is a smooth, subtle interpretation of hyacinth - this naturally rather brash flower is here tamed and made easier to wear - in composing this scent I imagined blue hyacinths though even within one colour of flower the scent varies with the variety grown. I couldn't get the fragrance to go blue without bunging in a load of artificial colour, so I had to settle for green! 

In this composition there is some very low-key white musk underneath to help the scent last and a little lemon on top to keep it bright, but nothing to interfere with the clear hyacinth scent. A perfect daytime fragrance that isn't too sweet and can be worn by anyone. 

The name by the way reflects the use of hyacinth in the traditional Persian / Iranian new year celebration as one of the Seven S's or Haft Seen - the Persian name for hyacinth being sonbol.
