    Default First Jean Claude Ellena perfume since hermes!

    I'm super excited for this Houbigant Essence Rares. I got to smell it a few days ago, and in love with it. It's such an addictive floral perfume with a creamy woody base. Can't wait for all of you to discover it.

    Rockin' good news! I wonder if he's going to take a little different approach from the uber-minimalist style he stuck to at Hermes. The notes and the packaging (and the house) all seem very more-ish in style. I can't wait to smell it!

    The packaging isn't his to say as it belongs to houbigant and it'd the same bottles of the other 2 in the same collection but the new perfume isn't a minimalist perfume I would say, unlike this style at hermes.

    This is at least the third reissue of an Essence Rare by Houbigant, going back many decades. Sounds like they’re determined to make that name stick!

    This series sounds nice. I hope these scents become available here.

    I smelt the perfume for the 2nd time today and it does reminds me of auphorie Anima Della Rosa going to get a bottle!
