Grossmith is one of Great Britain's oldest fragrance houses, founded in London in 1835. In 1940, the company had to close due to the war, but after second cousin Simon Brooke accidentally found the handwritten books containing the original formulas years later, he decided to revive the house. The three iconic fragrances (Hasu-no-Hana, Phul-Nana, Shem-el-Nessim) were adjusted slightly for the modern world. Apart from the classics, their modern fragrances are also greatly appreciated all over the world.
A classic chypre is characterized by top notes of citrus, often bergamot; a full-floral heart, like jasmine and rose; and mossy, woody notes in the base, such as patchouli, oak moss, and labdanum. For those who appreciate fragranced complexity and layered compositions, chypres are very exciting and worthwhile to explore!
