A deeply green scent that symbolizes the freedom, nature and renewal of the swinging 60s and 70s, galbanum is a much-loved note known for its rough, herbaceous and chypre-like facets. Pairing particularly well with hyacinth and gardenia, galbanum is a favorite alongside vibrant floral notes as it adds an earthy, slightly bitter edge. The note is also a renowned fixative—tying notes down, blending them together and ensuring that they linger for longer.
In the aftermath of the second world war, Germaine Cellier invented a new floral family: the Floral green. Vent vert contains an over-dose of 8% of galbanum, supported by the hyacinth in a sharp and very natural green freshness.
