MOLECULAR FRAGRANCES | 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, is a first-ever in the fragrance industry. The alcohol-free formula reveals immediately the heart of the fragrance. | The result of this modern-day alchemy is four collections of long-lasting and powerful perfumes plus, Source1 – a unique scent that can be found in all of the fragrances. | Each Hermetica scent is presented in an emerald green lacquered bottle with a golden metallic cap debossed with the Hermetica logo. The bottle is housed inside a golden perforated cylinder reminiscent of the molecule that carries the perfume to your nose.
