    Beloved and triggering oud gets a satin makeover that holds onto your skin like you just woke up that way. There’s no aggression, no sweat, no smoke, just the sensual sacredness that has made this sought-after material worn for millennia. Hand-in-hand with a leathery and lustrous saffron, they meet up with a thick, opulent rose absolute that immediately renders any harshness simply soft as silk. The alchemy that remains to enrobe your skin is a little bright, a little dark, and a lot of ‘Come hither...’ whispers...


    Notes include bergamot, cardamom, saffron, geranium essence, rose absolute, patchouli essence, oud essence and myrrh essence.

  • 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.
