    Default New Fragrance: Hermes Eau des Merveilles Au Bal des Etoiles

    From nstperfume.com:

    Hermès will launch Eau des Merveilles Au Bal des Etoiles in late February. The new fragrance for women is a flanker to 2004′s Eau des Merveilles, and follows Elixir des Merveilles (2006) and Eau Claire des Merveilles (2010).

    The notes feature oak, ambergris, bitter orange and pepper.

    Hermès Eau des Merveilles Au Bal des Etoiles is a limited edition, and will be available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette. The bottle features a “dragonfly fairy” by illustrator Alice Charbin.

    Wow, that's a mouthful. I googled theAu Bal des Etoiles and is the French translation, 'Star Ball'?

    I like the whole Merveilles series, so I'll have to check this out. The notes look promising.

    "Bal" here means ball in the sense of a formal dance. "Ball of the stars."

    As opposed to Ba'al meaning demon master?

    Exactly, I thought there might be some confusion on that point. :-)

    (Of course I was really responding to mikeperez23 above me. The way he translated it suggested he might think it was ball as in soccer ball.)

    Laughing at this! I would, too. Maybe some perfumer is missing out on a huge marketing idea: Scents of the Demonic Hierarchy. Scary, but sexy.

    So what the heck happened with this one? It was supposed to come out last month, according to the press release. Has anyone seen any at the Hermes boutiques or elsewhere?

    Well, it turns out it's just a limited edition bottle, the same old juice. It's the bottle with the little fairie on it.

    The bottle is nice, the notes sound lovely. I love my Eau des Merveilles. Mine came with a little gorgeous bottle strung on a leather necklace. I have never worn it, but do wear this Hermes quite often.

    Yeah, unfortunately. And I was pretty psyched; all the flankers have been terrific so far.
