Hermessence Iris Ukiyoé by Hermes

Hermessence by Hermès. Sense, essence, essential. The essence of Hermes and the very soul of perfume. A collection of olfactory poems, with sobriety and intensity, which freely explore new facets of emotion. Nature reinvented, unexpected and poetic. Unique and surprising associations of the most noble elements of perfumery.

Jean-Claude Ellena, perfumer to the house of Hermes, has created this collection of fragrances for both men and women which touch the heart and speak directly to the senses. 

 Hermessence - Iris Ukiyoé:

An interpretation of the unsuspected scents of iris flowers - lively and delicate. Nuanced, vivacious, unsuspected.

"I collect prints and have a mental picture of irises in the "floating world" (the ukiyoé in Japanese) in the works of Hokusai or Hiroshige. They inspired me when I was writing this divertimento based on floral iris. I felt like foiling the classic approach to iris by working on the flower's fragrances which are virtually unknown. The perfume is delicate but very much there, shifting between roses, orange blossom and mandarin, all expressed by small, impressionistic touches."  Jean-Claude Ellena
