Shangri La by Hiram Green has returned to Indigo Perfumery!
Following continuous customer requests, Hiram Green reintroduces
Shangri La was originally introduced in 2014 as a follow up to the
debut fragrance Moon Bloom. In 2018 production stopped and since
then customers have asked to bring it back. Like all fragrances in his
collection, Shangri La is an all-natural eau de parfum.
The fragrance was inspired by and named after the fictional land
described in James Hilton’s 1933 novel Lost Horizon. Hilton describes
Shangri La as a mythical Himalayan utopia, an earthly paradise isolated
from the rest of the world where people are almost immortal. Hiram
translated the beauty and purity of Shangri La into a contemporary
interpretation of a classic chypre perfume.
Chypre perfumes are characterised by a contrast between a fresh citrus accord and a woody-oakmoss base. The first chypre dates from 1917 and since then this genre has enjoyed enduring appeal.
Shangri La is a bright and airy perfume with a lush and exotic character.
The fragrance opens with a sharp burst of lemon, orange and bergamot
that is followed by a rich bouquet of peach, jasmine, orris, rose, cinnamon and warm spices. This opulent heart is anchored by an earthy base of vetiver and oakmoss.
It takes a good nose to distinguish the 2022 edition from the original
Shangri La. The most noticeable difference is perhaps the greater
emphasis on the floral and spicy notes.
Notes: Lemon, Orange, Bergamot, Peach, Jasmine, Rose, Orris, Cinnamon, Warm spices, Vetiver, Oakmoss

Delicious, spicy peach with rich cinnamon. More of a fall scent.
I'm very fussy with scents of perfume. I tried a sample size because my brother was in the Navy on a ship named Shangri-la. So I took a chance and ordered it. OMG beautiful fragrance this will be my signature fragrance. You get a hint of patchouli not over bearing. Words cannot express this lovely scent. I went back and bought the travel size as it is a little high in price for me, but once I save up I will be buying the regular size bottle. Try it you won't go wrong!!!!
