Feminine, abstract and gently uplifting, the scent of Hilma is one that enthrals. Oregano, angelica and cape may, which adds a twist to everything it touches, sit at the base of this scent. The fresh, green edged invitations of these notes dance with those of pink peppercorn and silver everlasting - both additions that weave into an entanglement across a tapestry of citrus. It is here, at the middle of this scent, that a particular extraction of pink and white grapefruit offers their zesty, sweet and stimulating aroma, giving the body of the fragrance life.
Completing Hilma with perfection, rose otto rests at the top, its sweetness imbuing this scent with the feeling of a soft embrace, touching the heart. Hilma’s scent profile embodies a dreamscape, its depth and tones keeping the senses intrigued.
In collaboration with Dear Rae, this fragrance is inspired by Hilma af Klint, the Swedish artist and mystic whose works can only be described as transcendental. They express ‘the Ether’ and what exists cosmically that is, mostly, unseen. Exploring in-between, interconnected spaces of consciousness and thought, Af Klint’s collections and creative expressions are groundbreaking, relaying messages and symbols of spiritual unfoldings. Well ahead of her time, her use of geometry and colour possesses much vision and mystery - Af Klint’s works go beyond, as does this scent in the way it moves one’s Spirit. The unusuality of Hilma’s structure allows the mind’s shapes to take form, canvases of curves and swirls moving through ombré sunrise hues. This fragrance is that of Hilma Af Klint’s spirit and art; it is as utterly sensational as her body of work that touched the ethereal.
