Fiery and Feisty, she's full of passion. Her feminine form is emblazoned with her irresistible sexuality. She dances with a spirit thats free and rich, as if one can see every hue in the world radiating off of her skin. But her heart is mellow, soft but tough to break. Once you go close, one finds darkness behind this brightly burning exterior....a story of a heartache or lamentation of a loved-one lost...it is this brilliant contrast of light and shadow is what makes her so special...

Fiesta yet Elegant
A stunning oriental by nose Christine Nagal newest in the kin of Hermes, who took the baton from Hermes long-standing perfumer extraordinaire Jean Claude Ellena.
I smell so many wonderful aromas in this complex yet refreshing offering. It starts off with a zesty saffron-quince spice bomb that immediately warms up my skin. And as it develops further I delve deeper into this vision of a carnival, flaming red feathers and luscious hips gyrating to the sounds of exotic beats, air filled with splendid hues and festivities and a celebration of the human spirit...I smell a honeyed-rhubarb facet thats really enriches the heart and creates a wonderfully avant-garde take on rose scents that are typically cooler, more musky, and more powdery. The longevity is excellent and I was able to experience the dry-down only after a good 8-9 hours. Thats when the beautiful contrast of mellow and fiery, dark and bright, floral and leathery really comes to play...Nagal herself states "What I want is that there will be a balance between the two, which is hard because usually leather overpowers anything else. So it was a lot of technical work to achieve the balance where they are both equal—the rose and the leather." (via Elle...read more)
And she achieves this harmonious effect of two virtually opposite ends of the olfactive spectrum so beautifully with a lush well rounded mellow leather that gives Galop D'Hermes its edge!
Wear this if you are looking for something avant-garde, exquisite, modern yet traditionally sensuous, If you are feminine, out-going and love a good night of passion and fun...this ones for you!
Iris, lavender and leather
Fabrice Pellegrin champions the lavender in Bucoliques which is polished and captures both the natural and spontaneously energising nuances, rounded with just a hint of the spicy facets of the original flower, slightly honeyed but not warm or cloying, full-bodied and so lovely! Iris lends a beautiful icy-floral quality while pale leathery facets pay homage to the regions history filled with leather tanneries. This fragrance is a modern, edgy and fresh take on lavender/Iris fragrances which is a theme most often smelt in a lot of the early traditional scents from the region of Grasse.
Test it well on your skin and consider your specific fragrance preferences, this may work for some may not work for others...
