Muguet Porcelaine

Last week I received a small present from a friend of mine in the UK.


The new Hermessence fragrance was waiting for me in the orange box.

Muguet Porcelaine, Hermes, Hermessence, lily of the valley, fragrance, духи, ландыш, эрмес

Muguet Porcelaine is the latest addition to the Hermessence family. It is a luminous, green, floral fragrance with a very true scent of the lily of the valley flower.  I own two other lily of the valley fragrances: Diorissimo from Dior and Lily of the Valley from Penhaligon’s. None of these fragrances is that close to the real scent of the lilies of the valley than Muguet Porcelaine. The fragrance is subtle, elegant, feminine and fresh.


Muguet Porcelaine has a good longevity and moderate silage. A gentle floral fragrance for spring and summer. Classic and elegant in every way.


  1. This looks gorgeous!! LOVE the bottle, looks so fresh 🙂

  2. I have been looking for a new muguet perfume for spring. Diorissimo was my first grown-up perfume, but I think they have changed the formula and I don’t like it so much. I prefer something fresher and greener now. I shall be going to the big city soon and will definitely be trying this one.


    1. I am so glad you visited my blog, dear Penelope! I am absolutely sure you will find the new Hermessence fragrance lovely. It is a very beautiful fragrance indeed. It is a perfect wedding day fragrance – so feminine, fresh and graceful. Simply stunning! Best regards, Irina


  3. Which other Hermes perfumes do you like ?


    1. I like Eau des Merveilles, Osmanthe Yunnan, Poivre Samarcande and Vanille Galante. I am also a great fan of Frederic Malle’s perfumes. My husband simply adores when I wear Lipstick Rose. By the way, Ralf Schwieger is the person behind Eau des Merveilles and Lipstick Rose. That is why it is not surprising I like both of the fragrances. You can read more about Lipstick Rose here, if you are interested: And what are your favorite perfumes?

        I love iris so Hiris is a favourite. From the Hermessences I like Cuir d’Anges, such a beautiful soft leather/floral, and Vetiver Tonka. Osmanthe Yunnan is a lovely summer perfume, but alas very fleeting on me.I’m looking for another tea perfume with more longevity. If you like Lipstick Rose you might like the new Misia from Chanel – it has the same notes of rose and violet but less sweet, with a hint of leather.

    1. I would love to try the new Misia but I live in a small town far away from Stockholm. But I will keep this perfume in mind for future trips. I like Cuir d’Anges as well. Ellena is so talented!
