Hermetica is a collection of molecular fragrances inspired by the ancient practice of alchemy, which sought to transform basic metals into precious materials and to find the ultimate elixir of life. Applying these practices to modern day perfume-making, Hermetica is based on the belief that finding the perfect perfume relies on the chemical connection between the molecules within a fragrance and one’s skin.
In their quest for the ultimate perfume elixir, Hermetica founders John and Clara Molloy decided to create a revolutionary collection by not choosing between natural ingredients or synthetic molecules but using a combination of the two. This hybrid formula, using unique patented technology - Innoscent™ - and developed by Symrise, is a first-ever in the fragrance industry. The alcohol-free formula reveals immediately the heart of the fragrance.
