Why Shen Loves It: A fresh and light musk fragrance . Notes of Helvotlide, ambergris, vanilla. Part of the latest generation of synthetic musks (the oldest one goes back to 1888), Helvetolide is particularly valued for its delectable pear note, reminiscent of ambrette, a vegetal musk extracted from hibiscus seeds. It was patented in 1991 by the Swiss company Firmenich, hence its name, derived from Helvetia, the Latin term for Switzerland.
