Hermès' first cologne: the bright and green freshness of orange combined with woody undertones. Bottle with removable pump. The founding cologne, created by Françoise Caron in 1979 and inspired by the smell of undergrowth moist with morning dew, Eau d'orange verte has since asserted itself as an emblem of Hermès, standing out by its distinctive freshness. Conceived as an explosion of citrus notes, orange plays the principal role supported by zest and leaves, lemon, mandarin, mint and blackcurrant bud. The fragrance reveals its complexity in a unique sillage composed of oak moss and patchouli.
