    Default Coming in September: Hermessence Cuir d'Ange

    From Perfumeshrine:
    [...] an angelic leather, a take without regard of intended sex this time, (as the Hermessences are created unisex) but which brings forth image of softness, vegetal and airy qualities and the familiar touch of this master perfumer. And never before has the soft leather "fold" in which the Hermessences bottles are put into seemed more appropriate: a buttery cream as smooth and inviting to the touch as feathers off the back of an angel.



    Not a lot of details of the scent itself yet. Ellena did a leather scent for Hermes in 2007, Kelly Caleche, that I know I've tried, but have no recollection of. "Buttery leather" sounds promising for this one!

    I love the name Cuir d'Ange! I was not really all that impressed with Kelly Caleche.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Thanks for sharing the info. Extremely good news, especially for someone who is fan of Hermes, leather fragrance and also of how leather is interpreted in some of the previous Hermes scents.

    Shadesofbleu: I did think of Angel Les Parfums de Cuir when I saw the name, let's hope Mugler is not feeling litigious!

    I smelled this last weekend and didn't care for it at all. Didn't smell like leather to me, just some weird lactonic chemical smell. Definitely do not blind buy this.

    Really looking forward to picking this up. I was told that they were expecting this to arrive by the end of August in Paris.

    I'm a little worried about how leather translates in Ellena's increasingly minimalist aesthetic, but I'll definitely drop by Hermes when this lands.

    The name is incredibly macabre. Please don't skin angels, Hermes.
