A forest walk

For this perfume Hiram was inspired by the natural splendour of Arcadia. In this idyllic, unspoiled wilderness babbling brooks meander through mountains covered in dense forests and the air is filled with the sound of humming insects and twittering birds. Imagine the lush undergrowth that covers the forest floor. In areas where the sun manages to break through the canopy, fragrant flowers bask in the sunlight and their sweet scent intertwines with the fresh green smell of the foliage.
Arcadia belongs to the classic olfactive group known as Fougère, or fern-like perfumes. As no natural fern fragrant oil exists, Fougère fragrances always consist of a combination of fragrant oils that evoke the scent of ferns.
Aromatic French lavender and Italian bergamot dominate the top of Arcadia before jasmine and rose provide floral shading. Tonka bean, aged patchouli and New Caledonian sandalwood add depth to the composition.
Since 2013 Canadian born perfumer Hiram Green has been creating handcrafted perfumes from the finest natural ingredients. His perfumes challenge the often-heard criticism that natural perfumery is boring, fast fleeing and has less sillage than traditional perfumery. Hiram’s perfumes are best described as intense, opulent and expressive. This is in part due to the precious and sometimes extremely costly natural ingredients that he sources from all over the world. The perfumes’ rich colours come from the ingredients therein and give the bottles their jewel-like appearance.
The initial inspiration for a perfume could come from anything: from music to art to travel. An abstract idea is then slowly, and with extreme care and precision, translated into something tangible. It is not uncommon for Hiram to make hundreds of trials over the course of several years before settling on the final formula. The perfumes have been praised by experts and enthusiasts. In 2019, Leather-themed fragrance Hyde won the Art & Olfaction Artisan award. This international award celebrates excellence in independent, artisan and experimental perfumery.
The range currently consists of seven eau de parfums. All perfumes are 100% natural, vegan (with the exception of beeswax absolute in Slowdive) and free of GMO. Nothing is tested on animals. Everything is developed and produced in small batches in Hiram’s studio in Gouda, The Netherlands.
