    Default Voyage dHerms by Herms

    NowSmellThis reports:

    Herms will launch Voyage d’Herms, a new unisex fragrance, this coming April.

    The fragrance was developed by Herms house perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena, and is reportedly a fresh musky woods.


    The bottle looks really nice:



    Available in 35 & 100 ml sizes. Anyone know what the notes are?

    Thanks Mike! Looks and sounds like another potentially popular fragrance for Hermes liked by many men and women. Of course, here in 'basenotes land', that will only lead to cries of over hyped and over exposed like another Hermes scent we all know. Damned one way or another.

    Hope this one will be available at points of sell other than the boutiques.

    VERY nice flacon. I'm happy to see that Hermes continues to release new and interesting bottles. Too bad their classics have been repackaged in the house standard bottle, though.

    I see ice, desert, and water as the horse travels in the video, suggesting perhaps the fragrance will move through the same environments. However, more ISO E Super comes to mind when I read "fresh musky woods". I'll be following this one closely.

    Thanks for the info, Mike.

    From what I've heard about this, it's a full scale release. I was under the impression from the rumours that this was going to be a feminine, but it's nice to see it's a unisex (that's not a 'Jardin').

    Hey Mike, thanks for letting us know about this. It sounds great. I know the "fresh musky woods" might sound suspect to many Basenoters, but I have faith that most things Hermes does involve some interesting twist. If the fragrance is half as novel as the bottle looks, it'll be a hit.

    What a brilliant bottle design! The fragrance sounds interesting enough, right up Ellena's niche.

    This may be a stupid question. But I'm wondering if the cover moves up and down as well as spinning, because judging by the picture, if it just spins, it won't be flush upon coming back down. Weird.

    From looking at this picture, it doesn't look like it will be flush when it spins around.



    I like the way it looks when it's fully open with the sprayer out.

    Yes, well this of course was the only thing that got me a bit nervous...but it's so hard to interpret if I will like a scent based upon the press release.

    I thought I was going to go apesh*t about Hermessence Vanille Galante (buying a 15 ml blind when I saw it on Ebay) and I just hated it and could not wear it comfortably.

    So I have decided to stop trying to predict whether I'm going to like a new scent, before I smell it.

    Expectations have been lowered comfortably. Ah....that's better.

    No - where's your thinking at? "Fresh Musky Woods" is the description we're given.

    Love that it'll be available in 35ml. More things should be released in this size.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.

    I'm in LOVE. And I will be at the boutique right then. I can't wait. It looks brilliant, and the fragrance is just what Herms needed in their line. The bottle is pure Herms. OMG. Both classic Herms and modern tech, but subtle. And it fits the concept so well. I'm impressed. This could be big. This is going to be an excellent year!

    Thanks, Mike.

    Oh, and as for the bottle...too nouveau for me personally, I prefer bottles that are basic and transparent in design.

    Best bottle EVAH. Not genuinely enthusiastic about the scent's description, but I'm guessing this is going to sell well simply by dint of design. That's one way to keep people from making do with decants, no?
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Actually, I've come to a conclusion. The bottle looks like a USB stick! the ones with a locomotive wheel that can rotate 360 Degrees and acts as a lid!

    You're actually right. I think those usb sticks where the actual concept for the bottle. It's voyage.. travel.. and they use to call them travel sticks here aswell (usb stick).
