From the wonderful fleetingness of the moment
It's no secret that I was irrevocably addicted to Rose Ikebana and Osmanthe Yunnan at the moment of the first spraying. Myrrh Églantine was given to me as a sample by the very generous saleswoman. And almost (but only almost) I regret that she was so generous. For myrrh Églantine also captivates me at the first attempt.
The fragrance starts fresh and sour. It is not a citric acid, but rather like a fruit acid in apple or apricot - without it smelling decidedly like a certain type of fruit. We have a climbing rose in the garden (New Dawn), that is a Sleeping Beauty rose with terribly many thorns and white, soft-pink, tinted, double flowers. It exudes a similar scent: rose mixed with apple. Myrrh Églantine has almost always had a rose in it - but it still has a hint of acidity and freshness. Below lies myrrh, very fine and like a veil. Myrrh can also be quite sharp and dominant - this is not the case here. There is only this touch of spice to it that prevents myrrh Églantine from slipping into sweetness or becoming arbitrary. In the further course my nose thinks to discover still amber and a trace musk, which let the smell become still more intimate and softer. But the fruit acid remains extremely pleasant on the skin until the very end.
Rose Églantine is a delicate, restrained, reserved fragrance, which unfortunately gets very close within a very short time and can hardly be smelled after only four hours. And yet it's such an enchanting, floating, light, elegant fragrance that it's immediately on my wish list for Hermes' next pack of four. This kind of fragrances, which have something artistically constructed, slightly artificial about them, but nevertheless do not have a hint of synthetic in them, inspire me more and more. Behind the Hermessence scents that have conquered my heart so far (Rose Ikebana, Osmanthe Yunnan and now Myrrh Églantine) I would have guessed the same creator! All three are airy, perfectionist in every detail and very thoughtfully composed and elegant to wear beyond all measure - and all three drive me to despair because they leave me all too quickly!

A disservice to name this after myrrhe - it's a gentle, fresh, fruity rose. Similar DNA to de Marly Delina, though Delina is much less shy.
