Vilhelm Perfumerie says this about the fragrance; “Summer in Stockholm. The sun is an amulet, suspended above the city. Each evening, it contemplates its descent only to change its mind and return to its position overhead. Under its perennial glow, night fuses with day, creating a feeling of limitless possibility. Crisp lemon zest, warm almond, the uplift of geranium, with a tinge of patchouli and a drift of faraway green fields in the breeze”. This unisex fragrance, created by Jerome Epinette, has top notes of black pepper, lemon and almond, middle notes are geranium and rosemary and the base notes are patchouli, black amber and moss.

Crisp lemon zest, warm almond, the uplift of geranium, with a tinge of patchouli and a drift of faraway green fields in the breeze.
