As others have mentioned, this fragrance has a citrusy top note. What I like about it is that it is a citrus with some bite - more tart like a blood orange vs. sweet like orange blossoms. It also has salt spray and a warm dry down. I like that I can wear this in the winter without it being too fruity or juvenile. Like Un Jardin Sur le Nil, it definitely lasts longer if you layer it with the body lotion, but then I find it too heavy for summer months. For me, it's a nice bright fragrance for cheering up on a cold or gray day.

I smelled this on a friend today and I LOVE IT. Like someone else said, it's definitely different from the floral fruity fragrances everybody seems to wear at the moment. Kind of masculine but lovely.

This is a favorite of mine. Not very strong, although I do get a faint warm fragrance all day once it has dried down. It won't enter the room before you do or overstay its welcome. I get a whiff of salt and some aromatic amber, some woodiness and powder, a little lemon or citron. I have found that I can improve the strength by using the body cream, although that is quite pricey. No flowers. It isn't pretty in a conventional way, but it is beautiful. I have had more people ask me what it was or say that I smelled fabulous, when I was wearing it, than anything else I have worn in recent years.I have been trying to figure out for a while whether the Parfum would be stronger, but the same. Salespeople have told me that the elixir is a different formula altogether, which confirms why I don't really like it as much on a scent strip.

I tried this at Sephora today. I was looking for the Eau d'Orange Verte, but they didn't have it. This one, when I first tried it, had that old grandmother-ly smell on me (do you know what I mean? lol). Then, about 20 minutes later WOW. I think it's pretty seductive, very sexy - different!Also it's pretty heady... a little goes a long way.

I absolutely love this fragrance.Everyone asks me what I'm wearing; complete strangers even. Its expensive but so worth it. That goes for all Hermes products.

So classy. The packaging is gorgeous, and the bottle stands apart from the rest of the perfumes on my vanity as it gently tilts on its side.The scent is beautiful. It's not overpowering and tends to last for several hours. It has a gentle powdery notes with a undertone of oriental spice.I wear this scent almost daily, and I have barely made a dent in the 3.3 fl. oz. bottle.

I love the scent on me when the SA in the local Dept store offer it to be sampled. The next day I go to the same store and tried again myself. I found it mysterious-not common. Somehow sweet yet powdery on me. Because of that snif,snif and snif all night long I made a mistake of purchasing it from the Strawberrynet. Gosh it's now no longer mysterious. It's manly. It's masculine on me. I knew it should be some unisex fragrance but not 'that'. I guess the net sold me something old coz when I went back to the Dept store I smell that snif-snif again. So I sold mine and got the new bottle.

This doesn't work for me at all. After a few minutes all I get is dry woody sharp smell which lasts and lasts for hours. No citrus at all.

I'm not very good at reviewing perfumes, as I am still "training" my nose- but- at first spray, Eau de Merveilles by Hermes has a very citrusy quality to it. Not long after this, it does change into a saltier quality, which I tend to like especially in the hot summer. The last notes I smell are more on the woody side. This is for sure a marine scent, I have heard others say it is not, I disagree. this smells like night time marine smell, if that makes any sense at all. Picture it almost as if you were out on the beach all day, now it's dusk ,the salt has dried to your skin, and in the distance someone has a fire going down the beach.

This is a bright, sunny summer scent. Eau des Merveilles is very citrussy on me - sparkling orange and lemon notes - and it also has a bath-salty quality and a hint of balsam. It's very clean-smelling, but also has depth with cedar and amber notes to round it out. I think it could be worn by a man, but it's certainly not aggressively masculine. It's distinctive and modern - not a pretty-pretty scent - and also outdoorsy. Very nice!
