Fresh, mentholated facets mingle with tart—yet sweet—fruity notes in a delicate balance of juicy acidity. The blackcurrant note costs a pretty penny, and therefore is exclusive to fine perfumery. Noses must heed caution: the blackcurrant note has an animalic edge that has been likened to the urine of a cat. However, when expertly blended, its scent is bold, unique and divinely aromatic.
Created in 1974, Amazone is the second perfume for women from Hermès, created after Calèche. This green floral is one of the first to showcase the blackcurrant bud that comes with the fruity notes and gives freshness and naturalness to the floral heart of narcissus, daffodil and iris.
