Hermetica was founded by Clara Molloy, a parisian-catalan poet and her husband John, a sporty Irish globetrotter. Over the last 15 years, they have explored and experimented with fragrance- making, always with the ambition to challenge convention through creativity.
For Hermetica, they came across a completely new way to make fragrances - a new way to be green that they hadn't been explored before. It took more than 2 years to create this formula, thanks to an intense collaboration between Clara and the senior perfumers Aliénor Massenet and Philippe Paparella.
“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” a said Hermetica co-founder Clara
IT BEGAN WITH A SECRET: THE SECRET TO CREATE THE PERFECT SCENT
Hermetica is a collection of clean fragrances inspired by the ancient Florentine practice of alchemy. Applying its practices to modern-day perfumery, Hermetica is based on the belief that finding the perfect fragrance relies on the connection between the precious molecules within a fragrance and one’s skin.
In their quest for the ultimate fragrance elixir, Clara and John decided to create a revolutionary collection by using a combination of the best form nature and molecules when chosen instead of a natural counterpart to preserve it: a conscious step towards making sustainable and green fragrance creation possible.
These hybrid formulas were developed using a unique patented technology, a worldwide first in the fragrance industry. The formulas immediately reveal the heart of the fragrance and mainly use green chemistry.
"Unlike traditional perfumes that use alcohol to bring the fragrance to your nose like a rocket, Hermetica uses a unique patented technology to release the full heart of the fragrance with a certain tempo; it's like the difference between smelling a glass of whisky and a glass of champagne. It's a refined version," said Hermetica co-founder, John
The result of this modern-day alchemy is four collections of long-lasting and moisturizing fragrances, plus the Source1 – a unique scent that can be layered with any fragrances to give them a modern and vibrant twist.
