Hermès has launched five new fragrances in the brand's luxury Hermessence line. Agar Ebène, Cèdre Sambac and Myrrhe Eglantine are available in the Eau de Toilette concentration typical of the series; Cardamusc and Musc Pallida are in oil-based Essence de Parfum.
All were inspired by the Middle East, and developed by Hermès house perfumer Christine Nagel, who notes that they can be worn alone or layered.

Cèdre Sambac ~ cedar and jasmine.
Myrrhe Eglantine ~ myrrh with Eglantine rose accord.
