Parfum Du Jour | Hermes Elixir Des Merveilles

We all have that friend who always smells so good and tells you about the latest fragrance she’s wearing. Well, my best friend is exactly like that and I’ve come across many of my favourite fragrances such as YSL’s Cinema thanks to her and now I can also thank her for introducing me to Hermes’ Elixir Des Merveilles.

‘The warm, soft sensuality of ambergris and vanilla are given an almost edible twist through the use of chocolate and caramel accords which nestle on a base of cedarwood, oakmoss, and patchouli’. For me, upon first smell, Elixir Des Merveilles smells rather masculine and very in your face, however it later dries down to a powdery yet creamy, chocolate fragrance with a hint of orange. There’s also tonka bean, sandalwood and amber which adds to the sweetness of the fragrance. Elixir Des Merveilles is a gourmand which I absolutely love wearing in the winter and they tend to be warm and cosy fragrances that evoke the urge to pull out the furry socks and hot chocolate for a night beside the fire…
