Arbole by Hiram Green
Eau de Parfum
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

Hiram Green 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.
