Bright, warm, and deep, without being too musky or too sweet is where Verticaloud sits in the land of aromas. The oud lingers in the background, simple and smooth, yet robust. This scent is long lasting, so spray lightly, as the silky mist stemming from an alcohol-free formula, glides on your skin. What we love the most is how the juicy raspberry, phenolic saffron, and dark leather notes take it beyond the traditional rose-oud combo. Outside of the tradition, the rose is creamy and the oud is dark and resinous with wooded amber nuances expressing their intensity throughout the wear. A surprisingly opulent fullness nestled between crests and valleys of molecules and oils.
Notes include pepper, bergamot, saffron, cardamom, coriander, jasmine, rose, raspberry, geranium, cinnamon, nutmeg, amberwood, sandalwood, labdanum, tonka bean oil, patchouli, and leather.
- A collection of molecular fragrances, Hermetica is inspired by the ancient practice of alchemy, which sought to transform basic metals into precious materials and to find the ultimate elixir of life. Applying these practices to modern day perfume-making, its ethos is based on the belief that finding the perfect perfume relies on the chemical connection between the molecules within a fragrance and one’s skin. In their quest for the ultimate perfume elixir, Hermetica founders decided to create a revolutionary collection by not choosing between natural ingredients or synthetic molecules but using a combination of the two. This hybrid formula, using unique patented technology - Innoscent™ - and developed by Symrise, is a first-ever in the fragrance industry. The alcohol-free formula reveals immediately the heart of the fragrance. This clean and alcohol-free fragrance experience provides the perfect alchemy between perfume and skin, with a long-lasting effect. Its moisturizing base, made from a new generation molecule, produced from organic, ethical, and responsible sugar cane, offers more sensorial qualities and nourishes your skin throughout the day.
