Hermetica’s Cedarise Eau de Parfum is an ode to its emblematic namesake tree in all of its facets. The complexity and richness of nature is expressed through pure cedarwood notes, the scents of roots and earthiness from vetiver, and elements of fresh leaves and pine. Around this rich construction, created by Senior Perfumer, Philippe Parparella, is an aromatic note of cypress conveying the density of the surrounding forest, as well as violet leaf to elevate the vegetal aspect of its character. The fragrance is like a dream under a cedar tree.

A native from the South of France, Philippe studied sciences in Montpellier, France and specialized in perfumery at the ISIPCA school in Versailles, France. He started working for Mane as an intern, and then followed their Perfumer Training Program after a couple of years. After living in various places in Asia, Philippe joined Symrise in May 2008. He especially loves working with woody, ambery and musky notes for their sensual aspects. Furthermore from his experience in Southeast Asia, he likes to work with exotic fruits such as mango and pineapple. He is always thrilled by the transformation of a written formula into an actual fragrance, especially when it turns out to be beautiful and impressive.
Hermetica is a collection of molecular fragrances inspired by the ancient practice of alchemy, which sought to transform basic metals into precious materials and to find the ultimate elixir of life. Applying these practices to modern day perfume-making, Hermetica is based on the belief that finding the perfect perfume relies on the chemical connection between the molecules within a fragrance and one’s skin. In their quest for the ultimate perfume elixir, Hermetica founders John and Clara Molloy decided to create a revolutionary collection by not choosing between natural ingredients or synthetic molecules but using a combination of the two. This hybrid formula, using unique patented technology - Innoscent™ - and developed by Symrise, is a first-ever in the fragrance industry. The alcohol-free formula reveals immediately the heart of the fragrance.
