    The inspiration for Silphium comes from the wine of the same name. It was grown in Cyrene, now Lebanon, and was highly praised as a spice, medicine and perfume by Greek philosophers and Roman emperors. Despite countless attempts to cultivate the plant, no one succeeded, and it became the most prized spice in the world. The high demand eventually drove the spice to extinction and the fragrance was lost. By carefully researching the living vessles of Silphium, Stora Skuggan has been able to recover the unique scent of this historic vessil.

    Top notes: Silphium accord, cistus.
    Heart notes: Cinnamon, tobacco, geranium, black pepper, ginger, clove.
    Base notes: Frankincense, cedarwood, myrrh, leather.



    Stora Skuggan is a Stockholm based perfume studio founded at 2015. The brand is run by a small group of perfumers and designers who together combine curious fascination with playful wit to create truly distinctive fragrance experiences. Each fragrance has been created with the aim of being a conceptual idea, a tangible work of art and an aesthetic object, all three dimensions together reflecting the diverse backgrounds of the group. All perfumes are handmade in elegant glass bottles with dimensional spherical lids where each fragrance has its own visual identity with its own image. Drawing inspiration from history, mysticism and pop culture, The Great Shadow offers sophisticated fragrances created with great care. All Stora Skuggans fragrances are based on stories that blur the line between myth and reality. These stories create a small universe around the perfumes and are conceptualized through scent and art. They are central to the brand and express what is unique about Stora Skuggan.
