Shem-el-Nessim is a release from Niche luxury perfume house Grossmith and perfumer Trevor Nicholl. London perfume house Grossmith is a house originally founded in the 19th century by John Grossmith before being resurrected. Years of research led to finding the original formula books, from which Grossmith's original 19th century fragrances were brought back. Today, Grossmith is run by Simon, Amanda, Eleanor, and Kate Brooke - 5th and 6th generation descendants of John Grossmith - that have "restored Grossmith to its rightful place as a prominent classic English perfume house that once again is producing the finest perfume in the world."

The Classic Collection fragrances ressurrect the perfumes of the 19th century Grossmith: "Using the original formulae and keeping natural materials wherever possible, irrespective of cost, Grossmith have ‘remastered’ three classic fragrances, Hasu-no-Hana (1888), Phul-Nana (1891) and Shem-el-Nessim (1906)"Shem-el-Nessim, a Floral Woody Musk, has a scent profile of powdery, woody, vanilla, iris, floral, fresh spicy, white floral, aromatic, rose, and yellow floral.

From Grossmith:

"Arabic for 'smelling the breeze.'

Florentine Iris, known for its rarity and expense is truly at the heart of this fragrance.

Originally created in 1906, this rich, luxurious fragrance typifies the Edwardian era with its warm floral powdery character."
