Arbole, is a warm, woody powdery perfume inspired by the Spanish poem of Lorca. Ostensibly simple, yet subtly complex, this is an unashamedly romantic fragrance for those who dare to dream.
Arbole opens with a burst of earthy patchouli that slowly merges with rich cedar wood and velvety sandalwood. Vanilla and tonka bean anchor the fragrance and provide a sweet and powdery base.
Quote review Chemist in a Bottle: "But when I smelled it I was electrified! It was a pleasurable swoon from the first whiff. ... Later the perfume develops a woody facet, presented in a very sophisticated manner. I smell mostly sandalwood. Substantive, with good density and richness. It's warm & embracing with the advantage of smooth qualities. There's also a bit of cedarwood but due to beautiful sandalwood, I just tend to overlook it. Drydown of Hiram's new fragrance is just as pleasant as its earlier parts. There is a lot of tonka going on, effusing a delightful and mouth-watering scent that is a combination of something creamy, warm-spicy, and a bit nut-like. Everything is topped by a rich vanilla accord that has some darkness to it as well as some balsamic properties too (at least in my case). To me, it smelled kind of like benzoin, nice and cuddly, with some fluffiness too! What's not to love here?"
Inspired by the poem Arbolé, arbolé by Federico García Lorca, 1898 - 1936

El viento, galán de torres

One of those few scents that immediately gives the feeling that life is good. Of course a lot of things are wrong, but it is inherently good. Different subtle facets of patchouli, shades of (olive) green (but not galbanum green), soft powder, warm tonka, then something dry, and something minty. All very subtle as a cut green gem that shows something different depending on the light. Is present, but not demanding. Exactly right.
