Harvey Prince is thrilled to bring you a splash of spring with our latest, hippest, most energizing fragrance, "Hello." With a twist of citrus in homage to that fresh squeezed glass on the breakfast table. The subtle yet, invigorating notes are layered with Summer Forsythia, an early Spring floral, to bring out the blossoming glow within you. As the scent wears through the day, you'll be warmly greeted with the enchanting smell of Pink Plumerias, found in the fragrant floral Leis of Hawaii bestowed upon guests, friends, and loved ones.
