A luminous and deeply sensuous floral
by Jean-Claude Ellena,
perfumer to the house of Hermès
Flowers and words,
create and send your flower letter
A drop held suspended,
the bottle by Pierre Hardy, designer
The Jour d'Hermès gallery,
from dawn to dusk,
seize the day and share your images
The adventure begins in 1951 with Eau d’Hermès composed by Edmond Roudnitska, and continues ten years later with the arrival of Calèche, the first women’s perfume from Hermès.
Since then the great names of perfumery have successively brought their own contributions, both as craftsmen and artists, to the commitment the house of Hermès has made to the craft and mastery of perfumery.
In 2004, Jean-Claude Ellena joined the house to become its exclusive perfumer. This artist of olfactory emotions, this aesthete practiced in refining and working raw materials has been the author of all the ensuing pages in this story that is as committed as it is free spirited.
In the library of Hermès perfumes, each perfume is a story, each perfume opens a new imaginary world.
The Novel Perfumes
Like stories filled with characters and events, the Novel-Perfumes expand time with their lasting presence. They draw their inspiration from the heritage of Hermès and its universe. Calèche, Équipage or more recently Eau des Merveilles, Terre d’Hermès. Voyage d’Hermès and now Jour d’Hermès tell a story and invite us to share in the imaginary world of the house.
The Novella Perfumes
Shorter tales with a more limited number of characters and events, the Novella-Perfumes – the Gardens and Colognes – concentrate time around a single moment.
An olfactory stroll in the footsteps of the in-house perfumer, each Garden
Perfume establishes a new sensory geography inspired by annual themes at Hermès.
The Colognes are generous, figurative expressions of simple pleasures, and sit perfectly in this register of olfactory snapshots.
Restrained and intense as haikus, the Poem-Perfumes reinvent a precious and unusual aspect of nature, sublimated by the inspired rewriting of a composer always eager to break new ground. With raw materials named in direct terms to produce a subtle sensation and an ineffable impression, Hermessence is a collection of unique perfumes, intended exclusively for Hermès stores.
We would like to invite you to capture the day and share it.
Selected photographs will be brought to light
as part of the Jour d'Hermès gallery and on Pinterest.
