Hermes - Eau des Merveilles

More like Eau de Robitussin. Quel dommage.

I've generally been unimpressed with Hermes' fragrances. Un Jardin sur le Nil, however, is quite nice. There was a great story about it in the New Yorker a while back (thanks to Hung for the link).

Hermes' website is quite cute. I think I want a Hermes coffee mug.

you know hermes caught flak for not letting oprah shop after hours. if you ask her, it's because she's black. apparently it didn't occur to her that THEY JUST MIGHT BE CLOSED.
i have now put oprah on my shut up list.

Yay! I got a shout out on your blog.

You should do a review of L'Eau d'Hiver. "Smells, delightfully, of ground white pepper and cold seawater, with a touch of fresh crab." While the description sorta reminds me of that scene from the movie Sideways (and just a flutter of Edam cheese), the scent combination sounds like something I'd love.

I really did enjoy reading this. Mind altering. Go have a super day.
