Description

A refined, aromatic lavender strewn with floral notes (including orange blossom) and evolving towards a gourmand but light base of licorice and hay.

At a glance

Elegant, light, gourmand… an offbeat look at lavender

History

Following in the footsteps of Paprika Brasil in 2006, Brin de Réglisse is the seventh creation in the Hermessence collection. Composed by Jean Claude Ellena, Hermès’s in-house fragrance designer, Brin de Réglisse (“sliver of licorice”) is ‘the story of an odd encounter’. One between a lavender pared down via molecular distillation to create ‘a dry, intense (…) lavender landscape’ and licorice, which garbs the lavender in ‘sensual matte black.’ A fragrance for men and women to share, found only in Hermès boutiques.

Range

Spray 3.4 fl. oz.; Spray with leather sheath 3.4 fl. oz.; Box of 4 ½-fl. oz. travel sprays.

Bottle

You’ll recognize the Hermessence collection’s heavy glass bottle with its top-stitched leather cap. The leather’s hue is called grape, a blend of dark brown and lavender.

    I like CLEMI's comments. I would add that I like the concept of a sliver of licorice. Fabulous idea they have conjuring a strange encounter. Molecular distillation is as intriguing as this scent by Hermes.

    Superbe parfum, très original, très frais. Il ne faut pas s'attendre à sentir du réglisse glucosé genre Haribot ! C'est très délicat, très fin. De même pour la lavande, on est bien loin de l'artillerie lourde. Tout est dans la légèreté. Ce parfum est magnifique. Mais je m'étonne qu'osmoz le classe dans les parfums masculin : il est tout à fait mixte. Par contre, la tenue est très très light ! Vu le prix, c'est décevant.
