For several years, I’ve used 4 to 5 perfumes between summer and winter and depending on my mood and condition. My regular fragrances are: Coco by Chanel, Jil Sander No 3, Paloma Picasso, Y by Yves Saint Laurent and Eau de Merveilles by Hérmes.
Sometimes I feel like trying a new scent. Then I go to the perfumery and the same thing will happening again:
The sales assistant will ask: Which scent do you usually use (don’t forget my list above), so I can suggest you something in the same direction. Great, I think – she obviously knows her stuff on fragrances! From all the proposals (Chanel Allure, Alien by Thierry Mugler, Jean Paul Gaultier Classique) of the sales lady, no perfume hits my taste and doesn’t work out well with my skin. So what I would suggest: If you use one of the perfumes that I use, then you may like the other fragrances as well. I can give a little help with this woman perfume guide.
An exotic and resonant scent for women that radiates casual sophistication for any time of the day, Eau Des Merveilles perfume by Hermes is an evocative and spicy choice that will turn heads wherever you go. Introduced by Hermes in 2004, Eau Des Merveilles brings together a rich and thoughtful balance of vetiver, pepper, fragrant woods and citrus for an appealing construction.
