Source1 Eau de Parfum forms the very core of the Hermetica brand and is the Prima Materia. It is both the base of all of Hermetica fragrances as well as a standalone fragrance in its own right, with a CITRUS and ORIENTAL character. As a base as well as an enhancer, the luminous note of BERGAMOT is blended with molecules of DRY AMBER and FRESH WOOD to bring a modern warmth and verticality to your skin.
Not an orange nor a lemon, but a bergamot. The essential oil, which is extracted from the peel, gives a noble brightness to a fragrance, with an elegant aroma that is fresh, spicy and slightly acidulous. It can turn a little woody and some people can occasionally smell hints of lavender lurking around.
Hermetica is a collection of molecular fragrances inspired by the ancient practice of alchemy based on the belief that finding the perfect perfume relies on the chemical connection between the molecules of a fragrance and one’s skin. The first of its kind, these fragrances are not water based, nor oil based. They use a patented MOISTURIZING base, similar to the feeling of a serum or toner on your skin. Not only is this formula safe for your skin and hair, but without the use of alcohol the heart of the fragrance is revealed immediately – no dry down time required.
Hermetica fragrances use Green chemistry and are alcohol-free, long-lasting, moisturizing, cruelty-free and refillable. Hermetica is compliant with all Clean Beauty regulations but this does not mean it’s all natural. Hermetica uses a mix of synthetic and natural molecules. Clean Beauty products are free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates and mineral oils.
