Eau de Basilic Pourpre was developed by perfumer Christine Nagel, and was inspired by a basil display at a farmer's market. In addition to the basil, the notes include bergamot, geranium, and a patchouli and spice base.
Hermès Eau de Basilic Pourpre will be available in 100 and 200 ml Eau de Toilette (and possibly other sizes as well).
Update: the description from Hermès, where there is also a 50 ml size, plus a travel size available in the 4 x 15 ml "compose your own set" coffrets (currently $124).
Hermes Colognes welcomes a new light and airy, plant-driven creation. Conceived by Hermes perfumer Christine Nagel, Eau de basilic pourpre is a tribute to purple basil, a sun-drenched aromatic that calls to mind conviviality and summer holidays with the family.
Eau de basilic pourpre expresses the deep and generous aromatic freshness of purple basil, enlivened with light, crystalline green bergamot and geranium to lend character.
