Dating all the way back to ancient Egypt, it’s due…
Imagine being in a garden, one with water and lots of greenness—in the heat of the peak summer months. Then add the cool clear scent of water wafting in the breeze. We smell flowers—subtle sweetness, with earth, pepperiness and a hint of dampness. That’s what you get with Hermès’ latest spritz, perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena’s newest contribution to the brand’s Hermessence collection.
This fragrance, elegant and green and sheer, is signature Ellena: A perfect cologne-like perfume for summer for both men and women.
