Nahema was created by Jean-Paul Guerlain in 1979. The top notes are rose, peach, bergamot and green notes in alliance with fresh aldehyde notes. The heart is created of luscious hyacinth, Bulgarian rose, ylang-ylang, jasmine, lilac and lily of the valley. The warm base is composed of vanilla, passion flower, Peru balsam, vetiver and sandalwood. The fragrance is exuberant, even heavy, with dark, honey-like base notes which emphasize the delicacy of rose.
