If you’ve been searching for a perfume that combines luxury with a modern touch, the Hermes Eau de Merveilles is for you. Its sparkling orange glass bottle and double base are a classic Hermes design. The perfume is so iconic, you can’t miss it on a shelf. The bottle is adorned with gold and orange glitter and is a wink at the fashion world of Jean-Paul Gaultier.
This floral fragrance was created by perfumers Nathalie Feisthauer and Ralf Schwieger. The fragrance is fresh and mineral, with hints of spice and dewy petals. It is not floral, but rather evocative of sand lilies, driftwood, and an anise chill. If you’re a fan of Audrey Hepburn, you will want to try this fragrance!
The fragrance opens with citrus and metallic notes, and then transitions to woody notes and exotic spices. The haziness of the fragrance is reminiscent of the ocean’s surface, and its lack of clarity creates a silky feel on the skin. The woody accord is a classic Hermes scent, and it plays nicely with this perfume’s more unconventional ingredients. Ambergris has a rich, deep aroma, but most perfumes made with it are synthetic.
