Fragrance description Parfums De Marly Herod Royal Essence
Herod is a woody spicy fragrance for men with strong accords of tobacco and vanilla. It is from the French niche perfumier Parfums de Marly, which has revived the sumptuous soul of 18th-century perfumes with its unique concept.
The highly imaginative Parfums de Marly Herod composition opens in its fresh head with accords of cinnamon and pepper. The floral, smoky heart is made up of notes of osmanthus, tobacco leaves, incense and labdanum. The base is made up of vanilla, cedar, vetiver, Iso E Super (an aromatic molecule with a light, woody scent and unique properties adding depth and a velvety feel to perfumes), umbrella sedge (cypriol or nagarmotha – a plant oil related to papyrus with a woody scent with earthy, spicy nuances) and musk. The overall aroma of Herod Eau de Parfum combines woody, tobacco and vanilla sides in a fascinating way, with a warm spicy and balsamic nature and a hint of cinnamon.
The impressive, magnificent, majestic and yet exotic Eau de Parfum Herod is suitable for day and evening wear all year round. It always makes the wearer feel utterly unique and envelops them in an atmosphere of noble, regal celebrations. All lovers of truly high-end fragrances should try it if they are seeking a high level of originality and the best quality.
