Hermes' Masterpiece
Hermes' masterpiece
It was in 1984, when this wonderful fragrance was launched in the Hermes House, whose texture and texture are typical of the brand.
The great perfumer Raymond Chaillan composed this monument of olfactory art together with the mythical Akiko Kamei. The idea was to produce a perfume of the highest quality that could represent the house all over the world and break away from the Hermes genre.
And so this wonderful chypree arose from the heap of innumerable attempts, in which the flowery heart revolves around the absolute of the rose.
The opening is lemon yellow (bergamot) dense and aldehyde almost metallic, a freshness typical of female chypreas, with aldehydes bursting into the scene. After this very fresh and metallic phase, the green aspect of the perfume emerges, with galbanum and hyacinth giving a very hard, stiff and floral fragrance. Followed by the beautiful iris dipping a red and bloody rose that is the master in the entire composition.
The rose is accompanied by an indol jasmine and ylang-ylang, which form a dusty flower.
The rose is also well built with warm and smoky myrrh, which makes the flower warm, bloody and seductive, the sandalwood together with cedar wood also forms a woody background that is remarkable even after the first hour. The result is a magnificent flowery chypre, in which the rose is the undisputed protagonist of the whole composition.
A rose with many faces: Sometimes it is cold (pink and aldehydes), while the other is very hot (pink and hyacinth), but the base is certainly an Oriental rose with lots of myrrh resin and sandalwood.
This composition is similar to the Guerlain Chamade (which does not become warm and velvety like the perfume d'hermes) in the early stages of development, so there is a very strong association with the mythical Guerlain Chype. This similarity is very pronounced because they have many common notes: Bergamot, Hyacinth, Rose, Jasmine, Galbanum and Sandalwood.
The combination of pink and sandalwood has in many places similarities with another great guerilla: samsara. It is a sweet and velvety powderiness, a warm appearance that is conveyed by the large amounts of sandalwood expressed in both perfumes.
The result is a fragrance with luxurious luminosity, a powdery warmth that warms and bewitches, the idea of the velvety vermilion color that turns into warm and seductive skin.
This fragrance expresses everything that elegance and refinement can be represented by the fragrance. Because that is luxury in one word: Parfum d'Hermes.

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.
