Sweet orange treat!
Wonderful sweet perfume, highest quality with exquisite bottle. The packaging is to die for. This is my first perfume from Hermes and I was happily surprised with this unique smell. I tried this under an enormous heat while at summer holidays and the perfume never turned bitter while the aroma... Read more

A VERY strong creamsicle
I received a sample of this from a friend. In a nutshell: It's a very strong, intense orange creamsicle and is almost identical to Laura Biagiotti's Roma per Uomo, except that the Eau des Merveilles is so much stronger. If you want a light version of this, Roma per Uomo is the way to go and... Read more

O mama. Here is a scent for the bold and the cozy all in one. Never encountered a scent so contradictionary nor excentric. Elixer des Merveilles feels like wearing lots of diamonds on the beach, having strawberries and chocolat for dinner and wearing a tuxedo while shopping late at night in a... Read more

A spicy orange gourmand
Jean-Claude Ellena is a genius, especially in regards to composing his fragrances using a wide range of ingredients, some that you would never believe could go hand in hand. Elixir des Merveilles is a lot bolder and richer than Eau des Merveilles, and in some ways, a touch more masculine. It... Read more

Works in a way probably not intended.
Elixir des Merveilles is an almost, almost, not-quite. How fun that Hermès, with its emphasis on luxury, taste and class distinction, the first step to which is clear identifiability to those who desire them, would make such a neither/nor fragrance. Orange peel, but not edible (almost gourmand.)... Read more

Luscious Golden Satin
Hermès Elixir des Merveilles manages to roll together the best qualities of amber and gourmand perfumes into one scrumptious creation. The amber is golden, shimmering and viscous, while the orange facet is sweet and somehow resinous. The vast majority of fragrances boasting orange as a note wind... Read more

Orange chocolate deliciousness
This one is simply scrumptious. It starts out with more of a chocolate scent than orange, which surprised me given the bottle. Very fine quality European chocolate – sweet, but not too sweet, creamy yet a little dry (dark chocolate?). As the scent develops, the chocolate becomes more subdued... Read more

Yum yum orange
Orange dipped in chocolate... yum!
I get a bit of a boozy note now and then.
Very much a comfort fragrance!
Settles woodsy on my skin and I have not found it to have the lasting power that everyone seems to adore, 3hr maybe?
