Jour D’Hermès Absolu, a new olfactory aura from Hermès

A profusion of bouquets. A celebration of the birth and rebirth of woman, every day.



The original Jour d’Hermès fragrance has a new floral reinterpretation signed by Jean-Claude Ellena, the Master perfumeur at the House of Hermès. Flowers and nothing but flowers are the motto of the new Jour d’Hermès Absolu.

An utterly voluptuous rewriting of the floral theme, the intensely feminine and sensual sillage of Jour d’Hermès Absolu identifies with hundreds of flowers like roses, creamy white gardenia, jasmine sambac, and sweet honey apricot blossom.

“With Jour d’Hermès Absolu, the framing is tighter, it’s like a close-up. It’s hard to say if it smells of lilies, jasmine, gardenias, roses, sweet peas or apricot flowers; I wanted an assertive signature closely related to a woman’s body,” says Jean-Claude Ellena.

“I wanted to express the essence of femininity with flowers and nothing but flowers,” added Jean-Claude Ellena, the “nose” behind Hermèssence collection, Voyage d’Hermès (2010), Un Jardin sur le Toit (2011), Voyage d’Hermes Perfume (2012), and L’Ambre des Merveilles (2012), to name just a few.
