Holme

The fragrance that is not a fragrance

Fitjar Islands come in all kinds of sizes and with different landscape. With so many islands, we have unique words to denote their size and importance. There is a word for the bigger kind of island (øy), and then we have words for the smaller or insignificant types of islands (holme, skjær, flu, and others). There are hundreds and hundreds of these miniscule islands, with nothing but lichen, heather and sea thrift growing on the rocks, and all with names, some funny, some cute, and almost all of them impossible to pronounce to any non-Norwegians.

Holme products still have a scent. It is a fresh, neutral and delicate scent, almost not discernible, and has a faint hint of herbs and honey. So we thought it fitting to give the name of “islands too small to be islands” to the fragrance that is barely there: our unscented range.

This is Holme. There is nothing here to distract the perfectionist in you, or to interfere with whatever cologne you use. The perfect choice for you if you don’t want your products to smell strongly, but only give you a fresh, well groomed feeling.

Holme is available as Aftershave Moisturiser. Our Stubble Softener is another unscented product.
