Fragrance News From Hermès: New Hermessence and Parfum des Merveilles


No doubt, the lovers of Jean-Claude Ellena’s Hermessence series will be delighted to hear that the rumours of the new scent being added to the collection are true. Hermès is expecting to have a new fragrance this October. Although the representative could not confirm the exact composition, some sources such as parfum-echecs refer to it as a soft floral leather.

Moreover, Hermès confirmed that the house is releasing Parfum des Merveilles this fall (September in France). The fragrance will be an extrait de parfum version of Eau des Merveilles and will be available in a refillable 1/4oz bottle, like other Hermès extrait de parfum. It is playing up the bitter orange and ambergris accord of Eau des Merveilles with rich notes of cognac and candied fruit.

  • BoisdeJasmin: Dear C, I hope that you will get a chance to try them. They are very unique fragrances. I just recently bought a set of four, which is a great way to discover them. Perhaps, Paris boutique will ship samples to you? August 24, 2005 at 11:05am Reply
