Product Description:

HYLNDS is a line of perfumes that explores the pseudo-historical world of Iron Age Europe- especially those places where the otherworld seems nigh. Aromatic materials from the lands of the Red Branch knights and their travels to prehistoric Scotland– smelted iron, larchwood, thistle– emboldened with bitter rose and amber.

Bitter Rose, Broken Spear initially calls to mind soft, scaly shagreen, with a briny seaside aspect. But that salt-water quality is quelled by the spiky, charcoal embers of burnt herbs. Wild mountain thyme is a floral, caramelized smoke while thistle, enflamed, skews tart and clover condenses in its honeyed, grass-like profile. Green pepper and cubeb are fresh, glowing greenery, an uplifting and illuminating duo. In this midst, bitter rose is piquant, soapy and simultaneously deeply fruited, a flower that communicates a steadfast bravery. Nutmeg dusts its petals, a spice that adds invisible yet tangible nutty, aromatic weight.

Smelted iron smokes as it cools, a metallic tang that sluices through and enlivens the heady mix of rose and nutmeg. Amber reiterates roses luxuriant textures, yet reframes the flowers dulcet aspects in a more salty setting. Galbanum resin, like iron, contributes a second wave of uplifting, bitter-bright color that balances the floral-spicy-saline core of this scent. Larch is a coniferous cleanse, yet it reiterates the spicy qualities of nutmeg and rose.

Bitter Rose, Broken Spear is a back and forth battle between cold, searing textures and rich, prismatic dimensionality: this scent calls to mind a perfect, crimson rose rising out of barren, battle scarred land. Tough, enigmatic and romantic, Bitter Rose, Broken Spear is endlessly enlivening.

(embers, wild mountain thyme, green pepper, cubeb, bitter rose, thistle, clover, nutmeg, smelted iron, amber, galbanum resin, larch)
