Hermès’ most recent addition to their fragrance collection is an impressive take on the timeless masterpiece curated by perfumer Christine Nagel. After a decade-long history of sweet scents, the French luxury house has finally taken on fresh and distinguished scent.
The topsy-turvy Eau des Merveilles Bleue encapsulates in scent, the freshness and crispness of a new day, through the translucence of the colour blue. Frankly, I’m relaxed just thinking about it. The newly-fangled concoction opens on a note of a floral, breezy, sea-fresh tone, quickly going through several nuances of oceanic and watery impressions. Honestly, I felt that the composition is much more floral than what one would normally expect from a conservative marine scent.
“The wonder of Hermès is rooted in childhood when our eyes are open to the world, and marvel at everything. I marvelled at the pebbles, wet from the ocean; they had such a particular colour and luminosity, and I discovered on them a salty, mineral taste …” – Christine Nagel
Hermès Eau des Merveilles Bleue is available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette.
