    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!

    Thanks for this promising news. Have every one in the Hermessence line, and will definitely be adding this one.

    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.

    Since I've decided to sample or try most of the hermessence line. I'll have to try this at some point in the future!

    A friend who works in the perfume industry had an advance sample of it.

    Review on Grain de musc, here: http://graindemusc.blogspot.com/2014...llena-for.html

    ...Over the years, Jean-Claude Ellena’s style became so meticulously coded (with Voyage as its quintessence) that he sometimes came off as having painted himself into a corner. His recent work -- Eau de Narcisse Bleu, Bel Ami Vétiver, Terre d’Hermès Eau très fraiche… -- somehow feels more joyful and more relaxed. Cuir d’Ange goes one step beyond: it smells like none of his other fragrances...

    After having spoken to the Hermes boutique in my area, was informed that they still haven't gotten word when it is due to arrive although they are aware of its impending arrival. Hopefully soon.

    Sounds just like the release of Epice Marine last year. They all knew it was coming, just didn't know when until it actually showed up.

    It is already here... But in France only at 24, Faubourg St Honoré.
    Sounds weird that some people who already tried it find this is "too much leather" and other "not leather at all". I go there on 18th of september, will give you my feedback !
