Too sweet for me
It is a nice, sweet scent and you can do no wrong wearing this one. If you like thick, syrupy scents, this one will be a good addition to your collection. The price is great and does not feel like a clone.

My take on this scent:
- I have tried this in a shop and I was overwhelmed by how sickly sweet was, I even considered it a bad release.
- It has based on color and the cola note, a similarity to ROJA Enigma, but is it really so? Let´s find out.
- Mancera is launching very nice, easy to like scents and priced correctly. Is this also a good alternative to the ROJA Enigma like many people say, not for my nose. I find it almos diabetes inducing sweet and sickly, not a scent I would like to wear all day.
- From this tiny sample I cannot get the full experience, but according to my second thoughts, I think this one is: …

Reminds me? Dr. Pepper fizzy drink.
H/S: Very good performance, it lasted beyond 8 hours on the clothes.
Versatility: Wherever Enigma ROJA would go, this can follow.
Seasons: It will shine in the colder months.

Not too bad, I must say
So, one can wonder how is it that a big luxury house like Hermès is not making any waves into the perfume industry.

They are consistent, traditional I might say and even going a bit on the safe side .. far away from the creativity of Amouage during the Christopher Chong´s times.

I do have big favorites from them like Terre d´Hermes EDT / Eau Tres Fraiche & Equipage.

Since Master Ellena decided to part ways in 2016 with the brand, for reasons I do not fully understand, there is a new "Nose" Inhouse perfumer called: Christine Nagel.

Up to now, I was not very impressed by any of her work, which was either too green or too safe for my taste. But since Oud Alezan got released, a beautiful mix of oud rose à la POAL or Ombre Nomade, I got curious about her new creative ways.

And this brings us to the "Herbes Vives" which is an awesome green, fresh scent with an ingredient from MANE called "Physcool®":

"It has been over 20 years since MANE patented its Physcool®, a molecule recognised for its significant long-lasting cooling effect."

For me, this smells like a fresh, raw & green fig, combined with fresh cut grass and a fruity sorbet of pears.
The combination is very fortunate and I enjoy smelling this quite a lot, for a new Hermès. Might this be the start of a new winning series from the brand? We will see.

This lasts a long time, it is fresh, masculine and does not smell like a copy paste of something else or the eternal sage with bergamot "à la" Rabanne, Armani or YSL.

Tres bien, madame Nagel !

it´s quite nice
It might well be that this is the last time when the Editeur de Parfums is contributing to the launch of a scent, for the brand.

Frederic Malle will leave the brand soon so I do wonder, how can you continue a brand with his name, without him as editeur?

- I am very surprised by how nice and easy to wear is this scent. It leans very feminine on my skin so I would say that if you are a curious man about this scent, do try a sample first and then buy. This is very long lasting, it will be with you for a full day, a nice feature for the non-oriental Frederic Malle scents.

Reminds me of? A bit of Sintra from Memo, but it quite unique.
Longevity / Silage: On my skin it lasts over 8 hours.
Versatility: All the time in the summer, it is a very easy to like scent and will work well with the hot skin I believe.
Seasons: It will shine in the warmer months.
Score: 8.5 / 10 – I like the creation, but it´s just not a perfume I would wear. It´s blended well and the perfumer is very creative.

Thank you for watching.

Jordi does it again .. not a bad scent
When you see Jordi Fernandez as perfumer, you know they are going to copy a top seller and add some fruity note on top.

Widian London is a Tuscan Leather with more Raspberry, Montblanc Explorer is an Aventus without Pineapple and Oud Maracuja is an Ombre Nomade with Passionfruit.
- When I saw Max Forti talking about this one as it´s the second coming of Jesus, it got me curious, why is he so passionate about an unknown brand which sells this 50ml/1.7OZ for about 215 € / 315$?
- I like the fruity aspect to it, with the bold Ombre Nomade vibes but are there really no more original perfumers available, the Oud Alezan from Hermés is also a copy of Louis Vuitton.
- If this was priced like Montblanc Explorer it would have been the deal of the century, but at 360€/410$ it´s a no brainer to just get the Ombre Nomade and enjoy life, it´s a much better deal.

Reminds me? Ombre Nomade, Oud Alezan from Hermés.
H/S: Very good, 8+ hours. But not as powerful as the Louis Vuitton.
Versatility: Wherever Ombre Nomade would go, this can follow.
Seasons: I think it can work well all year round.

Score: 9 / 10 – It is a gorgeous, oriental scent and more versatile than ON. If you like loud, oudy scents, this one will be a good addition to your collection.

Not too bad, another Rose Oud
This is one of the latest perfume from Hermessence so I was very curious to see how the latest from the premium line from Hermès is and I got a sample here, thanks to WitweBolte.

It has Oud, Rose, Rose water .. I imagine Portrait of a Lady - Frederic Malle going on a date with Ombre Nomade from LV and then having a baby, called Oud Alezan.

- It is true that copying is the highest flattery but that is all what Hermés can come with, a copy of two best sellers? I do wonder for whom was this scent created, what was their main client?
- This is the first scent from Christine Nagel which I like, but so far there was no creation of hers which I enjoyed. I do wonder, why such an expensive luxury house is neglecting their perfume business, I imagine the wealthy clients not caring at all how they smell, as long as it is the right brand on the bottle but still.

Reminds me? Ombre Nomade, POAL, Les Sables Roses, Oud Maracuja
H/S: Very good performance, it lasted beyond 10 hours on my skin.
Versatility: Wherever Ombre Nomade would go, this can follow.
Seasons: It will shine in the colder months.

Thank you for watching the video too :).
