Hermessence Ambre Narguile, Hermès

Jean-Claude Ellena, the fabulous in-house nose of the perfume house Hermès and one of the most magnificent perfumers created the fragrant masterpiece Ambre Narguile in 2004, part of the exclusive collection Hermessence that also includes more 4 fragrances: Rose Ikebana, Poivre Samarcande, Vetiver Tonka and Osmanthe Yunnan.

Jean Claude Ellena is recognised by his crystalline compositions, divinely clean however in Ambre Narguile he develops a fragrance with sultry accords. The perfume presents olfactive facets more complex with slightly gourmand notes, spicy, resinous and incense which involve the skin on a second skin, imponent and captivating, sensually warm and mysterious, exhaling a hipnotic smoke in the air, voluptuosly addictive.

Narguilé, Arguile or Shisha
is a traditional water pipe in the Middle Eastern and North of Africa and is largely used in various countries around the world. Traditionally a mix of tobacco, honey, fruits and aromatizers are blended and used in the pipe provoking degustative and olfative effects in the taste and olfaction senses. This pipe is part of the Oriental Culture, one of the most orientalist objects related to the pleasure; in this context, the pleasure of smoking and indulging senses with flavors and scents of the Egypt Shisha, providing multiple sensations when is accompaigned by music, dance, exotic beauty environments.

Ambre Narguile has the perfection of the most evocative among all Shishas, bringing to the memory the spectacular moment of the rarest Narguile in Ancient Times. That only confirms what thinks the perfumer about his creations: they are like memory poetries.

In this East memory, the fragrance has the male power of a Sultan, unique, exulted and desired by odalisques and wives and, the most beautiful and sweetest woman is also the most elegant of the Harem, the favorite concubine, the chosen lady, the most talent woman in arts of the Dance, Music and Sensuality. The woman who from an odalisque condition, she may be transformed into the beloved wife in the Sultan's heart.

His Narguile is her Narguile, therefore a wearable fragrance between genders. Among the whiff of a pipe that perfumes the majestic bed with the most expensive spices and scents, a volatile pleasure awakes yet continuous through Ambre Narguile in irresistibly erotized, souls that are surrendered to the carnal and spiritual excitement covered by the air of the luxury cashmere conceived by Jean- Claude Ellena.

Ambre Narguile
keeps the finenesss of the house Hermès, glamorous in all the olfactive development like the greatest oriental palace. Its elegance fits to the start of complex notes and a distinguishable mix in which a smoky spicy multifaceted effect is blended to incense and woody accords with honeyed tobacco nuances, amber, caramel, woods and much cinamon. This start is strangely continuous because, in a ambiguous way, still is kept and changes the development as a bewitched smoke of an Arguile. In the perfume development, it is noticeable a tobacco vanilic scent in one resinous base through which accords of cinamon and labdanum are brought to being gradually. The intensity of cinamon in Ambre Narguile evokes the aromatic richness of its taste and olfaction and how this spicy is valued in Ancient Times as raw material.

As a magical fragrance, a Hermès treasure, the perfume contains sesame seeds, symbol of eternal life and that make Ambre Narguile immortal for Arabian nights, warm and longlasting as well as its sillage. As the one thousand nights, when the bottle is touched, the desire is to whisper mythical breaths: Be opened, Ambre Narguile and takes me away for the Egypt nights of Shisha filled by the sound of tablas and percussion.
