Silphium Silphium
Stora Skuggan


+ -
Sample 1,5ml€3.00

The perfume is inspired by the mythical plant with the same name, which was the highest valued spice during the classical antiquity – more precious than both cinnamon and saffron. The plant was so sought after it was eventually harvested to extinction about 1 500 years ago and was lost in time.
The lost scent of Silphium is recreated using a novel combination of herb aroma chemicals, the molecules which are the fragrant building blocks of likely relatives to Silphium. This is set against a warm background of ancient incense, selected spices, wood and leather. The bottle design interprets the inscription from ancient Cyrenean coins.
