About Hermèssence Rose Ikebana

Jean-Claude Ellena:

Beautiful and minimalist, the traditional Japanese art of ikebana – arranging bouquets of cut flowers and leaves using very few elements – ideally corresponded to a form of expression I could transpose in a perfume. The smell of a rose early in the morning, damp, sprinkled with dew, delicate and light.

Reviews of Hermèssence Rose Ikebana

Typical Ellena/Hermes, but in a good way. As others have said, this is essentially a study in rose, rhubarb, and cumin, all in a haze of pleasant synthetics, but the magic is that it totally works.

The rhubarb gives a sour green sharpness to the rose, while the rose brings out a citrus/mango brightness in the rhubarb. The cumin, instead of being sweaty, adds earthy depth while, at the same time, a sour rosy haze of plasticky synthetics which would normally drive me batty actually works here, giving an unexpectedly bright shining freshness.

Sniffed casually, I find that this reminds me of Ellena's Bigarade Concentree, but brighter and much less sweaty. Yes, it's weak, so many sprays are required, but I think it's worth it.

When I first smelled this, it was the most realistic fragrance I had ever smelled. It is like the rose is right in front of you, still wet from dew and at the most fragrantly optimal time of the day. While it is just a water cooler like most of the Hermessence line, this is beautifully realistic.

Rose and rhubarb - on my skin definitely more rose, albeit lashed with a synthetic fruity sourness in the backgound - a rose in acid rain?

A pleasant bright rose; straight up and he result of good craftsmanship - well executed with moments of beauty.

The sillage is moderate, the projection excellent and the longevity five hours on my skin.

Minimalist, zen or laziness? The rose, in spite of being nothing sensational on me, is very pleasant. Thus a thumbs up - give and take the acid rain. 3.25/5.

Rose Ikebana is a pale, transparent and hyper-clean rose built around a smooth woody bone structure with the typical sour facet which has become one of the distinctive (yet not necessarily interesting) traces of modern Hermes.

What I would classify as a *politically correct* fragrance. Nice, inoffensive, civilized, decent and eventually unexciting.

A pale lightly fruity rose scent with undercurrents of what smells like grapefruit to my nose. And I concur with Rickbr with reference to its thematic similarity to JC Ellena's past work in Kelly Caleche. Rose Ikebana however doesn't excite me. There were times when I enjoyed its serene nature but there were more times when I simply felt indifferent towards it. Compared to the vibrant elegance of Creed's Fleur de The Rose Bulgare, this feels positively sedate. A neutral rating for this scent is probably as Zen as it gets.
