The marine freshness of the new Eau Des Merveilles Bleue from Hermès
Much more than a classic perfume for women, Eau Des Merveilles d’Hermès is a real scent curiosity. This juice was launched in 2004 and presented us with a velvety, creamy and sparkling accord devoid of any floral flavor, something rare enough for a feminine scent to be emphasized! Also, faced with its immense success, Hermès decided to reinterpret its cult essence. This is how the Eau Des Merveilles Bleue was born, for a rendering more aquatic than ever.
The maritime flavor of Eau Des Merveilles Bleue
Formerly presented in a round-shaped bottle in transparent and amber colors, Eau Des Merveilles Bleue is now delivered to us in an entirely bluish container. Always endowed with a cylindrical silhouette posing at an angle like a tumbler, this one is absolutely poetic. On the other hand, no one can say if his universe is rather maritime or aerial. It can evoke the sky as much as the sea except that it seems to be strewn with an infinity of sparkling stars. Its silver cabochon, meanwhile, gives more modernity to the whole. Also, to learn more about his universe, it is then essential to spray a few drops of this juice in the air.
At this moment, the Eau Des Merveilles Bleue is revealed through clearly marine scents . Aquatic notes appear from its first breath.
Thus, Eau Des Merveilles Bleue turns out to be a particularly appreciable perfume to wear on a daily basis as its biting freshness is revitalizing. Then, the patchouli comes to accompany the whole for a more robust result. This very famous plant in perfumery delivers here its large olfactory facets. Eau Des Merveilles Bleue turns out to be woody, earthy, chypre, mossy and camphorated at the same time. Therefore, woody notes complete this composition, making it even more vibrant and giving it more character.
A fragrance signed by the official nose of the house of Hermès
As you will have understood, Eau Des Merveilles from 2004 and its successor from 2016 are two distinctly different fragrances. Also, this can easily be explained if we consider that these two juices were not produced by the same perfumers. The first was made by Jean-Claude Ellena, official nose of the Hermès house for 12 years. In addition, it was even one of his first creations for the brand. The new Eau Des Merveilles Bleue, on the other hand, was made by Christine Nagel. It took up the torch in 2016 and does not try to copy paste.
Each of his creations has a part of his personality and his history. Also, this is precisely what we find in Eau Des Merveilles Bleue. She then confides that she was inspired by a flavor of her childhood and more exactly that of “pebbles wet by the sea” and their “salty, mineral taste”. The result is a scent “both woody and mineral, swept away by the spray and warmed by the roundness and warmth of patchouli”.
