Hermès history intertwined with perfume ever since the 1930s. Each perfume is a story within the impressive collections of Hermès perfumes, opening up the owner to a fantasy world. Since 1951, the company started to create several fragrances for both men and women, as well as some popular unisex lines. Hermes’ completely unique style of exploring the freshness of Cologne echoes throughout the lavish expression of pure pleasure.
Hermes perfume production represents a register of olfactory moments that praises the relationship between craftsman expertise and artistic sensitivity. Acting as both artist and craftsman, Hermès has invested its unparalleled savoir-faire and creative style in all of its perfumed designs. Today we will take a peek at some of the most iconic fragrances that bear the Hermes signature.
Eau D'orange Verte Perfume by Hermes, Eau D'Orange Verte is a citrus women’s perfume that is an updated version of the 1979 fragrance, Eau de CologneHermes. In-house perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena in 2009 is the nose behind this recreation, which is part of the House of Hermes Cologne collection. Because of the short longevity and the soft sillage of the fragrance, it works best for spring and summer daytime wear. Amalfi lemon, orange, and mandarin orange citrus notes open this scent and combinewith mint, vetiver, patchouli, and cassis notes.
Founded in 1837 by Thierry Hermes, the Hermes company initially provided the carriage trade with bridles, harnesses, and saddles. After the first leather bag was introduced in 1900 for equestrians to carry their saddles with them, the company shifted its focus to leather goods, clothing, and accessories. Scarves, jewelry, ties, watches and fragrances were added by the mid-20th century. The company and its research and production facilities remain based in Paris, France.
