Hermes Hermessence Epice Marine
Hermès will launch Epice Marine, the latest in the Hermessence series, in September 2013. It is inspired by the spice palette used by French chef Olivier Roellinger who hails from Brittany, mixed for further intrigue with the scent of sea-shore fog and Bruichladdich whiskey. The composition is signed by in-house perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena.
The fragrance features notes of cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, bergamot, a synthetic molecule which smells of algea and “oceanic water” but not of the sea, a smoky fog accord inspired by Bruichladdich whiskey, oakmoss.
