Hyle is a scent redolent of the sun-drenched Mediterranean Sea, and calls instantly to mind languid afternoons spent by the coast. The opening of fresh sea air and delicate lemon is offset perfectly by sweet floral jasmine in the heart, lent greater depth by the addition of green notes that call to mind the stem of the flower with their mild woody character. A base of musk, patchouli and myrrh gives the fragrance a warming, spicy finish that perfectly accents those fresher marine notes in the top. This beautiful fragrance is one of our favourites in our Farmacia SS Annunziata collection here at Roullier White.
Top: Lemon, Marine Notes, Bergamot
