Hiram Green launched their latest creation, Lustre, at the Esxcence 2019. A rose soliflore, it is the luminous pearl in the otherwise brightly coloured collection of scented jewels, and perhaps the most exquisite.
Hiram Green Lustre by Hiram Green 2019
I have followed Hiram Green´s handcrafted works since the launch of Moon Bloom. Vero Kern had me send samples of each of the Hiram Green´s to her. She was not one to lavish praise upon anyone, but she thought that Hiram`s work was not only unique, but that he was a perfectionist in his creations.
Giving the illusion of simplicity, Lustre it is anything but. I believe it takes great skill to create a soliflore that remains gorgeous throughout and does not sit sourly on your skin like something from the local health food chakra oil shelf.
Notes: Bulgarian rose, citrus, orris, olibanum.
Lustre opens green and citrusy, the rose present from the beginning. As it warms up it becomes rich and luxuriant, a coruscating shower of rose petals. The longer it is on your skin the deeper the rose becomes, orris and olibanum silently reinforcing the depth, the merest hint of honey as it eventually fades from the skin. As with all of the Hiram Green collection, each fragrance is made using only natural materials and the longevity is outstanding.
“I gotta new rose, I got it good, Guess I knew that I always would, I cannot stop to mess around, I got a brand new rose in town.” The Damned.
Lustre is utterly exquisite.
