Normally orange is not one of my favorite colors privately or professional, but one orange always pass the test and that is the one Hermés use on their packing with the iconic logo that was designed and introduced in the early 1950s. It comprises of a Duc carriage which is attached to a horse, perhaps interpreting the company’s humble origins as a horse saddlery manufacturer founded in 1837.

My first Hermés product was a gold duple watch, since other products has come along but one has nearly becoming a part of me and the other day I got bottle no. 25 the Poivre Samarcande from the Hermessence, the line of fragrances sold exclusively in the companies flagship stores. I have always been very lucky with fragrance that have pepper as  an ingredient and this also has scent of oaky wood and musk.

I am told that people can feel me in the rooms after I have left because of Poivre Samarcande and they are asking why I am not wearing it, when I am using a different scent. If I do wear something else I have used Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford and French Lover by Frederic Malle.
