Stora Skuggan -Silphium Eau De Parfum
Here, Stora Skuggan has recreated the scent of silphium through research, ingenuity, hard work, and a touch of sorcery. On first spritz we get a blast of rosy, ultra-fem geranium, along with something bright and unidentifiable – perhaps that silphium accord? It’s tart, zesty and fleeting, and is quickly subsumed by a peppery, clean scent; a spicy soapy smell that’s distinctly masculine. It’s a dynamic fragrance – boyish and girlish, warmish and coolish, spicy and fresh. There’s some cinnamon in the drydown that leaves us with a tender, wistful feeling – prompting us to ask ourselves: what exactly are we wistful for? Perhaps a beloved, bygone miracle plant?
