Etat Libre d'Orange Hermann A Mes Cotes references a line from a poem by Victor Hugo; "by my side, Hermann seemed to me like a shadow". Aiming to capture your own shadows, Hermann opens with cool top notes of geosmin and blackcurrant, contrasted with the darkness of peppery rose and an earthy base of woods, incense and patchouli. Made in France.
Editor's Notes: Hermann recreates the effect of moonlight through forest trees casting sinister shadows. This is ELO at their ambitious best. Shadowy black meets a demure off-white, where a generosity of black pepper, woods and galbanum clash with the cool mineral tang of geosmin, blackcurrant, and finished with a wash of soft incense. This is a classical scent with an audacious twist.
