In this article we bring you the best of Hermetica Paris' perfumes. The ancient art of alchemy is making a comeback with Hermetica, and it offers you the chance to find your perfect scent. These fragrances are based on centuries-old practices that rely on finding a connection between one's skin and each precious molecule in the scent.
In their quest for the ultimate fragrance elixir, Hermetica decided to create a revolutionary collection by using an unusual combination of forms: nature's best ingredients combined with molecules instead of a natural counterpart. They hope this will be sustainable and green in making future fragrances.
These new formulas are not only beautiful, but they're also eco-friendly and made with a patented technology. You don't have to worry about the environment anymore because these fragrances truly care for it!
The result of this modern-day alchemy is four collections of long lasting and moisturizing fragrances, plus the Source 1 – a unique scent that can be layered with any fragrance to give it a more modern twist.
Hermetica co-founder Clara Molloy:
Hermetica represents a new approach in the making of fragrances that combines nature and chemistry. Powerful scents, gentle on the skin, respectful of the environment, mixing history and modernity.

The story of Hermetica is the perfect example of how two different cultures can combine to create something new and original. Clara Molloy, a Parisian-Catalan poet who grew up in Ireland with an artistic background, met her Irish globetrotter husband John on one his many trips around Europe. Together over 15 years they explored fragrance making as well as experimenting with various ingredients from all over the world that will make their perfumes unique and creative while always challenging convention through creativity.
'the ambition was about finding inspiration in everything' says Clara 'to explore what we were smelling without any limits.' And it seems like this has paid off because now customers are coming back for more!
