The first fragrance by Hermes.
A powerful and sensual Eau, rich in citrus fruit and enhanced with spices.
Created in 1951 by Edmond Roudnitska, Eau d’Hermès explores a citrusy, spicy, floral theme and is the house’s original fragrance. It draws inspiration from the idea of a magical, deeply sensory, aroma: “The inside of a Hermès bag where the scent of a perfume lingered. A note of fine leather wrapped in fresh trails of citrus fruit, seasoned with spices”, was how the perfumer-composer described it at the time. A historical novel, inspired by the tradition and culture of Hermès, it appeals to both men and women. Powerful, sensual composition.
