Rather than dreaming up an intoxicatingly exotic scent, Jean-Claude Ellena, Hermès’s house nose, proposes a fresh, musky woody fragrance. So it represents more of a voyage of the mind, an intellectualized vision of travel. The fragrance’s opening, both citrusy and spicy, blends lemony notes with spicier ones reminiscent of cardamom. The transparent floral heart highlights some of the perfumer’s favorite notes: scents of green tea and hedione. The scent’s soft, woody signature pairs white woods and musks. Fans of Jean-Claude Ellena’s scents won’t be disappointed by this fragrance for him or her.
