Inspired by the blue gradient of the Jávea coves in Spain, Almiah has the exact colour of the sea on a quiet afternoon. It’s mesmerising and fresh, a citrusy mix of lime and orange underscored by a lily and jasmine body with wood notes. Spain’s gorgeous coastal towns have a languid romance quite unlike anywhere I’ve ever been, when the sunlight sparkling off the crash of waves beg you stop in your tracks and take pause to enjoy the pleasures of the day. It is a scent and memory both energising yet comforting at the same time.
