Hermès are launching a new version of Eau des Merveilles called Ambre des Merveilles. In-house perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena answers 4 questions regarding the internal necessity of having created this reinterpretation.
- Jean-Claude Ellena, why L'Ambre des Merveilles following L'Eau, L'Eau claire and L'Elixir des Merveilles?...
- L'Eau des Merveilles is a theme which is powerful enough to prolong itself into a cycle, taking root in an olfactive story inhabited by amber and its expressions. With L'Eau des merveilles, we were trying to express a non-floral femininity, very woody and wilfull. With the Elixir, I wanted a gourmand, titillating composition. With the L'Eau claire, I was looking for clarity, transparency, lightness. Today, L'Ambre is about a sensual and mysterious woman. For this new chapter, I wanted to recount one of the mysteries of amber, set between delicacy and sensuality, when vanilla encounters the warmth of labdanum and the mugginess of patchouli.
