Perfume became part of Hermès’ history early on. Genuine and original, each perfume tells a distinctive story. Each fragrance is an artistic expression created for the pleasure and harmony of the senses by Jean-Claude Ellena, Perfumer of the House.
A reminder of a visit to the Hermès leather vaults, Kelly Calèche is a light, feminine, joyous expression of leather. It gives a nod to two in-house emblems, and translates the perfumer’s tactile and olfactory emotions into an evocation of leather worn next to the skin, gently tanned by the touch and edged with fresh petals.
Terre d’Hermès is a symbolic narrative revolving around a raw material and its metamorphosis. A novel that expresses the alchemical power of the elements. A water somewhere between the earth and the sky. A journey imbued with strength and poetry. Woody, vegetal, mineral.
Femininity in perfume form! A celebration of the birth and rebirth of woman, every day, Jour d’Hermès brings to light the beauty of women, while maintaining the mystery of each individual woman. A profusion of bouquets. From dawn to dusk, here is a floral that flowers, a blossom that blooms.
A novel that feeds on the imagination, Voyage d’Hermès expresses the longstanding and unusual relationship between the house and travel. An interplay of paradoxes, complements and unexpected alliances upholds the premise of woody notes that are fresh yet musky, familiar yet surprising, hovering between impulsive and comforting, equally at ease with men as with women. Hermès designer Philippe Mouquet created a “nomad” object bottle for Voyage d’Hermès, conceived for voyages and symbolic of movement.
Un Jardin sur le Toit is a lively, edgy novella. This perfume describes a secret garden, nestled in the heart of the city in Paris. A hanging garden, perched on the roof of the house of Hermès, at 24 faubourg Saint-Honoré. An apple tree, a pear tree, a magnolia in the Paris air, along with a few self-seeded imposters, all making up this perfume of light and pleasure, enticing and full of laughter.
