Hermessence Cuir d'Ange by Hermès is a Leather fragrance for women and men. Hermessence Cuir d'Ange was launched in 2014. The nose behind this fragrance is Jean-Claude Ellena. The fragrance features heliotrope, hawthorn, violet, narcissus, musk and leather.
When I first got this sample, I sprayed it on skin and detected only floral notes, a bit disappointed to not smell leather notes. After giving the decant a few days to settle, it has marvelously evolved to be a leather-first floral, similar to this perfumer's other work - his recent Frederic Malle fragrance, Heaven Can Wait, without the clove note. Worth a try if you think you know floral and leather notes - I thought I did, and still found this delightful and surprising. This is special.
Cuir d’Ange does not project well after 3 hours, but those 3 hours will be one of the best smells. Dewy violets, pear-like undertones, musk, a little iris and soft leather that isn’t the complete star.
