Mysticism and science, aka nature and chemistry, are two things that typically don’t go together, but Hermetica, the luxury molecular fragrance brand, is breaking the mold and revolutionizing the storied fragrance industry. Founders John and Clara Molloy have always viewed perfume as alchemy, and derived both their brand name and ideology from Corpus Hermeticum, a collection of mystical texts that led to the practice of alchemy in the Middle Ages; a practice that transforms basic metals into precious metals, with the goal to create the elixir of life. What’s revolutionary about the brand is the unique recipe. Hermetica fragrances are created by mixing natural ingredients, synthetic molecules, and synthetics derived from natural sources. Unless you are a science pro, trust us, this patented technology has not been used before.
Hermetica perfumes are categorized into four collections including Emerald Stairways, Vertical Ambers, and The Door and Dry Waters. Each category has three unique fragrances totalling 12 under the Hermetica brand umbrella. The arena of scents spans from green and floral to woody and oriental. All fragrances are sustainably bottled in a chic lacquered green vessel with a gold perforated case that will beautifully adorn any beauty cabinet, vanity or tabletop. Drawing on tried and proven centuries-old-techniques, Hermetica has a deep respect for the past. Combining the past with modern day technology, Hermetica has created its very own elixir of life. The cruelty-free, sustainable fragrance line is great for those with sensitive skin. Come check out the full Hermeticum line at 10 Corso Como New York. As the brand says, “Time goes by, Hermetica remains.”
