“Jean-Claude El­lena knows ex­actly how to cap­ture the spirit of the times in such beau­ti­ful scents,” says Natasha. “His new cologne for Her­mès is an in­ter­est­ing, some­what ex­otic sum­mer ex­pe­ri­ence.”

“When I started out in the pro­fes­sion of per­fumer, I learned to dis­til raw ma­te­ri­als, in­clud­ing or­ange blos­som,” says JeanClaude El­lena, res­i­dent per­fumer for Her­mès. “When you en­ter the world of stills, you are also im­mersed in a scent, im­preg­nated with it—you be­come it.” To cel­e­brate this em­blem­atic mo­ment early in his fragrance jour­ney, El­lena cre­ated a cologne that truly en­cap­su­lates the beauty of the or­ange blos­som—or neroli. He re­calls, “My en­tire be­ing was fra­granced with or­ange blos­som. Where nor­mally one uses very lit­tle neroli in fra­grances, I used it abun­dantly, with aban­don, as never be­fore.”
