Eau de Parfum by Hiram Green
Fragrance Family – Woody Oriental
Perfume Author – Hiram Green
Arbolé takes its name and spirit from Federico Lorca’s poem, which opens with the line “tree, tree, dry and green.” Think of a lazy summer afternoon somewhere in the hinterland of Ibiza: salty dry wind blowing through the trees and a trace of incense lingering in the air. This is a romantic fragrance with a vintage touch.
Arbolé 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.
Notes – Patchouli, cedar, sandalwood, vanilla, tonka bean
