Hermes Eau Claire des Merveilles

"From surprise to magic and from magic to enchantment, Eau des Merveilles leads us by the nose on a dream cloud. A multi-facetted novel built on a woody amber accord that resonates right through to the top notes, this fragrance was created in 2004 by Ralph Schwieger and Nathalie Feisthauer. It successfully takes on the challenge of being a sparkling women's perfume with not a flower in sight."

The perfume of enchantment. An amber wood for women, surprising and magical.
- Jean-Claude Ellena

The Culture of Fragrance
Take note: When someone insists that a perfume has universal appeal, they are selling you a line. And probably a perfume. The truth is our scent preferences are too emotionally charged and deeply rooted to win favor across the board. When we interviewed fashion and beauty experts from around the world, we discovered that fragrance is pretty heady stuff, with potent connections to spirituality, geography, and history.

"I live in London now, but I'm Australian, and I believe that's where my minimalist approach to fragrance comes from. I love the smell of the ocean on my skin, or just a dash of patchouli oil on the nape of my neck. Where I'm from in Australia, the air is so rich and heavily scented with gardenia that perfume can feel superfluous. I wear Hermès Eau Claire des Merveilles all year round. It's incredibly light and unassuming. I always get compliments on it, but people are never quite sure if it's my perfume or just my soap. It's that subtle."
