    Default Rose Amazone - new from Hermes

    Did this one just slip out unannounced?

    Rose Amazone
    "A new Amazone who is so much more contemporary, brave and powerful but also extremely feminine.
    Rose Amazone, a sparkling, tangy and tender perfume, brightened by citrus fruits, currants and raspberries.
    A perfume full of colours for cheerful fragrancing."

    Now Smell This is reporting the price, US, is $125.

    I've never smelled the original Amazone.

    I wonder if Jean Claude Ellena is the perfumer?

    This sounds like something my wife would be interested in based on the description. Thanks for the info.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I'm actually interested to try this, despite the hilariously contradictory ad copy. I haven't heard anything about the perfumer behind this either.

    I smelled this over the weekend. The rose and tomato leaf notes jump out of the bottle initially - very JC Ellena, for sure. Once the sharpness softens you can distinctly smell the aldehydes and the florals from the original (which I must admit, is not my favorite scent). I can see wearing this. Anyone else smell this? Fans of Kelly Caleche and Hermessence Rose Ikebana should check this out.
