Hermes Eau de Citron Noir

Hermes-Eau-de-Citron-Noir-perfume

French Maison Hermès launches a new perfume for both men and women, Eau de Citron Noir. The new perfume, Hermès Eau de Citron Noir is described to be fresh aquatic/citrusy with woody elements, as well as a modern design and powerful charms.

A journey into the olfactory world of citrus notes has plunged me into the heart of the vast world, dotted with surprises, lemons. Lemon caviar, lemon hand Buddha, lemon Eureka … So many original lemons have challenged me, but it is the black lemon, so smoky, so racy, which has finally established as the high point.

Christine Nagel

Translated, Eau de Citron Noir means black lemon water, which isn’t exactly appealing to think about, especially when it comes to fragrances. But because this is also a new scent from Hermès created by house perfumer Christine Nagel, one should always expect the unexpected.

As the name of the perfume inspires, Hermès Eau de Citron Noir is really a nicely citrusy-infused perfume that has been used for so many years by men and women on their daily basis. The new fragrance follows other previous editions that were successfully launched and adored by true connoisseurs. Eau de Citron Noir describes the dark lemon note in its composition, not an intense and pungent fragrance with an aromatic aroma.

Parfums de Nicolaï Cap Neroli

Parfums-de-Nicolai-Cap-Neroli.jpg

Orange blossom, Mimosa, Jasmine and Neroli perfumes are among my favorites, they reminds me of the great times I had in the Middle-East and the south of France, especially at Yakymour. In particular Neroli, due to its sweet but not overwhelming aroma, as well as greenly and spicy at the same time. When a perfume relates to a certain note – this means an expensive aroma with natural and rare ingredients.

Cap Neroli ‘on the French Riviera’ is a tribute to the bitter-orange cultivation of the Côte d’Azure. I imagined the scent of a point of land running into the sea and having the sweet name of Cape Neroli.

Patricia de Nicolaï

Parfums de Nicolaï introduces the new Cap Neroli perfume composed by perfumer and brand-owner Patricia de Nicolaï. Cap Neroli shows up as a powerful, strong, and radiant perfume and at the same time with a magnificent beauty to elude.

Top notes: Mandarin, Orange, Mint, Petitgrain, Rosemary
Heart notes: Neroli Jasmine, Orange blossom, Ylang-Ylang
Base notes: Oakmoss, Musk

This Eau de Toilette is a three-act play performed in a natural setting, like an open-air theatre perched on a hill plunging into the Mediterranean. The overture is a ballet of citrus enhanced with rosemary and mint, while a prelude of bitter-orange petitgrain essence heralds the arrival on stage of the majestic Neroli flower. Small in stature but powerful in scent, this radiant bloom is escorted by a bouquet of jasmine, ylang-ylang, and Eau de Brouts which comes together in a delicate-paced choreography. Oakmoss, plus a hint of musk and amber, provide a finale like a bottle cast into the sea with an intoxicating message inside.

 

Parfums de Nicolai Cap Neroli

Though the aromas of neroli, orange blossom and citruseshave been employed in numerous previous offerings from Parfums de Nicolaï, fans of the French Maison might recall 1989’s Cologne Sologne as the only other fragrance of the brand to specifically focus on these notes. As such this new launch is a welcome addition to the brands line-up. The perfume house also offers a similarly themed candle and a soap named, Fleur d’Oranger, as well as a pillow mist named Brume d’Oreiller

 

Parfums de Nicolai Cap Neroli Eau de Toilette

Parfums de Nicolaï Cap Neroli is available as 30, 100 Eau de Toilette and a 250ml + 15ml refil (see above). The fragrance is availble now for purchase directly from the brands website, Pnicolai.com.

With a pleasant floral/fruity aroma. The new perfume starts to impress with a refreshing opening of the perfume’s main note mandarin, and is joined by spice blackcurrant along with floral accords of jasmine and magnolia. The base calms on a woody layer made of osmanthus and musks. A scent that is both crisp and commanding.

Mandarin is a marvellous citrus fruit because it’s possible to diffuse from it simultaneously the optimism of the flesh, the freshness of the zest and the floral aspect of the tree.
