Fresh, Woody

Call it by its name or, more simply, by ‘Hermann’.  Either way the people who compliment you are going to need to know which fragrance you’re wearing.  A cool, sheer and woody blend that is unlike any other.

Also available as a scented candle.

 

FULL DESCRIPTION

Who goes beside you into the forest on the darkest night ? In Victor Hugo’s poem, « À quoi songeaient les deux cavaliers dans la forêt », (What Two Horsemen Were Thinking in the Forest), the narrator says “ by my side, Hermann seemed to me like a shadow. ”

We all have shadows, even at night in the dark forest. You may call yours by another name : your invisible friend. Your conscience, your soul, maybe even your complementary ego. Your shadow could have a name, like Hermann. Or your shadow could be your perfume. This is your companion. You can argue with your companion, you can challenge your companion, you can test the boundaries of your own attitudes. You can debate the finer points of existence. But you cannot lose this companion, not ever. This is your alternative self. As you move through life and contemplate its meaning, you ask unanswerable questions. When you’re overwhelmed with uncertainties, look to your shadow. Maybe you’ll get a response. Maybe not. But at least you’ll have an interesting conversation.

Complex and Alluring Scent

I ordered a sample pack a while back after seeing reviews of some of these scents on YouTube and I LOVED this one, I got a 50ml bottle because of it!

It has a deep dark but floral scent that levels out the muskyness. The lighter notes like the floral parts are really what separate this from other scents; it brings life, balance, and intrigue. I wish I could live in the world that this scent creates in my mind! It feels/smells like an ecosystem of the most exotic and lightly floral plants in an earthy, misty, dark forest. A truly complex, amorphous, meandering, inviting, etc... scent.

I think this scent would smell great on anyone but I tend to put it on when I want to have a masculine/mysterious/alluring vibe. (It really is gender neutral in my opinion though)

Love this scent! You should definitely try it!

Unique, nostalgia-inducing scent!

I love this rich, woody fragrance. It reminds me of our cabin by a lake in Maine every time I put it on.
