Smells like unsweet linden blossom and citrus. VERY pretty, clean and fresh without being aquatic or soapy at all. I like this combination very much.

This is an exquisite, true lily-of-the-valley fragrance that smells as if it has much more body to it than others I have tried. I put it on 6 hours ago, and I can still smell it. Gorgeous.

I got a sample of “Terre” and fell in love (not surprising because I adore woodsy fragrances), only after a while I discovered it’s a men’s perfume. I was surprised but decided to buy it for myself anyway. Anyway, on me it doesn’t smell like men’s perfume at all- people are surprised when I tell them what I’m wearing. Terre d’Hermes is warm, woodsy, slightly citrusy- like late summer afternoon. It’s a great Autumn scent. Oh, and the lasting power is amazing.

Sea salt and minerals are the first impressions offered up by Eau des Merveilles Bleue. The effect isn’t entirely literal though, with a touch of lemon and a dash of mint to lure one’s mind away from the shores. Straight away, Bleue is instantly recognisable as Eau des Merveilles however, the colour has been drained away, with the sparkling orange tones of the original purified into something more transparent and luminous and very blue. This all floats atop a salty heart of driftwood and stone, creating a clash of woods, minerals and citrus fruits that feels easygoing and revitalising.Oceanic and very AquaticLike so many modern perfumes, Eau des Merveilles Bleue relies heavily on musks in the base to create a feeling that is sparklingly clean but also expansive and large. The difference here is the contrasts between this ethereal, sterile musk and the dryness of patchouli, which adds a darker undertone that hints, just hints, that there is depth in these marvellous waters. All together it gives the impression of cool air drifting slowly over the water. It’s an air of mystery that draws one closer to the mineral shimmer of the ocean.Eau des Merveilles Bleue is very nicely done. It manages to be evocative of the ocean without relying on the tired tropes of the aquatic and marine genres. In fact, it doesn’t feel remotely aquatic at all (which really is a curse word in modern perfumery, let’s face it) instead it evokes the mineral feel of pebbles on a beach rather than the crashing of the surf. I think it’s a scent that I’m going to hit pretty hard this summer, because it’s the perfect fragrance for those days where one simply wants something clean and refreshing. Eau des Merveilles Bleue is the scented equivalent of throwing on a clean shirt (from Hermès, naturally, if only I could afford one) in the palest shade of blue. And there isnt nare a trace of a flower to be found. Can it get much better than that.

This is a glorious delight of a fragrance...in fact, I love the entire Merveilles line---and while they are all similar and share family traits, they are all quite different enough from each other to justify owning every one. What makes Elixir special? The peru balsam mixed with caramel, resins and incense. A spicy citrus treat, yet almost a gourmand as it warms on your skin. Rich tonka, vanilla, patchouli and amber ground it--but never in a heavy way. This one is so beautiful I almost can't describe it. I get the occasional whiff of expensive soap, especially when I spray the back of my neck. Suitable for men or women, this one is just divine. It lasts all day on my skin, as well. A+Notes: peru balsam, vanilla sugar, amber, sandalwood, tonka bean, patchouli, siam resin, caramel, oak, incense, orange peel and cedar.
