    Eau de Mandarine Ambree sounds and looks good. Robin, it’s not any limited edition or so, is it?
    If it’s not then there’s a chance it will go for a wilder distribution in Douglas in Poland (only Douglas carries Hermes here)

    oh i am looking forward to these. I really like Gentiane Blanche and was planning to buy a FB this summer, but maybe i will wait until i can try these two.

    • Robin says:

      Might as well see which are best!

      When Hermes released GB and PR all 3 bottles, with E d’OV, were available in 30ml in a boxed set. Now I’m hoping that all 5 will be available as a set!

  3. Zazie says:

    Mandarines ambrées is the name Andy Tauer uses for his soaps.
    It feels strange to find it here.
    Could it be that someone in the Hermes marketing department reads perfume blogs?
    In any case, I am not the target for Hermès perfumes… ;)
    Which is a relief: I don’t want any more lemmings, please!!!

    • Robin says:

      I seriously doubt they took the name from Tauer’s soap, but either way, Hermes has taken the trademark so that’s that :-)

    • Alyssa says:

      I could swear I had some Mandarine Ambree soaps from Claus Porto a few years ago before they were discontinued (booo!). It’s such a bland name it hardly seems copyrightable. Like trademarking “Lemon and Lime” or “Lavender Vanilla”.

      • Robin says:

        I think what they have trademarked is the full thing…I am guessing you could still make Mandarine Ambree but not Eau de Mandarine Ambree.

  4. kristinacologne says:

    Interesting that the word “fresh” rather turns me off – considering that a Cologne should be fresh by definition. Eau d’orange verte is still my favorite even if it’s almost non-existent on my skin.

    • Robin says:

      Ha, me too — and in fact I found Gentiane too fresh & clean, but loved Pamplemousse. So hoping one of these 2 will suit me.

  5. Omega says:

    I will try anything amber. I still have to try that other amber they released not that long ago..I can’t keep up, lol.

  6. morgana says:

    So glad you specified that this new release will not interfere with the existence of the other Hermes colognes!
    IMO, Gentiane Blanche = Masterpiece.

    Consider me curious, but not burning with desire… much as I love Hermès and JCE.

    Count me among those who truly loves Gentiane Blanche. I’m on my second bottle.

  9. nancyg says:

    Looking forward to Mandarine Ambree. Love OV – the PR, not so much…

  10. eminere says:

    Interesting they’ve added colours to the fragrance names.

  11. Isis says:

    I think the people at Hermes are trying to kill me. Or my savings. I already own (and love dearly, I try to pick a favourite but I never succeed) al three previous colognes (oh and the Jardin en Mediterannee, and Hiris, and the wonderfull mousson thing, and a few more Hermesses…. and I am trying my best to ignore Vetiver Tonka and Paprika Bresil but it hasn’t been easy), and it sounds like these two are going to be wonderfull aswell.

    I got a kick out of this pic today! I truly cannot wait to try Mandarin Ambree. : )
