Product Description:

A memory of Boston in the '80s, where green moss & ivy grew alongside I.R.A. graffiti, and fresh clover was salted by the sea. Androgynous and light bodied, Boston Ivy is a scent of urban elegance.

Lime distillate is less reminiscent of the tart fruit than of wet limestone. Hops contribute a rich, yeasty aspect that adds a playful solidity to this misty reverie. Green pepper reiterates the refreshing tone of Boston Ivy, contributing an under-ripe, crunchy capsicum flourish. Clover softens, it’s mead-like sweetness adding a supple, viscous texture that sharpens our sense of this place and time. Oakmoss’ chalky, thick quality reinforces the depth of scent that clover initially instilled. ‘Earth dirt’ is not the natural conglomerate it’s name suggests but a searingly brilliant, fresh, metallic rendering of soil that is both weighty and luminous. Galbanum’s green quality is so fresh it seems almost acidic, a base component that sluices through all preceding layers to reconnect with the lightest of top notes, lime distillate.

Boston Ivy is the best possible reimagining of that quintessentially Irish green- a shade between Irish Spring soap and the verdant intensity of Lucky the Leprechaun (of the charmed cereal). Vivid, saline and as moreish as a piece of thickly buttered soda bread. Boston Ivy is a rare, multi-faceted verdant scent, that’s neither aggressive nor blasé. Though it commemorates nostalgic feeling, this scent is totally enlivening.
