A lost treasure
Parfum d'Hermes is a lost treasure. I would love to have a full bottle of this one but it has become too difficult to find for a reasonable price. It deserves the admiration, it is a truly timeless beauty. The blend starts with a spectacular hyacinth plus green notes top, followed by a bright and powdery combination of classic flowers which leads to a warm smoky and resinous dry down supported by spicy sweet woody solid base. It is a chic classic, not too bold still distinct. Easy to wear on daytime, long lasting enough as perfumes of the era used to be. It just makes my heart ache the fact that such a wonder has disappeared forever.
