HERMES

In 1837 Thierry Hermes opened his workshop making the finest quality harnesses and saddles in the heart of Paris. Today Hermes is still a family company whose craftspeople make, often by hand and always with love , bags and belts, diaries and dishes, scarves and shoes, perfumes and purses, ties and travelling furniture, as well as gloves, hats, watches, jewellery and clothes. The arrival in 2004 of Jean-Claude Ellena as exclusive fragrance designer for Hermès marked a decisive stage. As an artist of the olfactory emotions, and an aesthete of purification and of materials, he shares with Hermès an evidently complementary sense of calling and creativity. Jean-Claude Ellena has put his signature to new stages in an olfactory adventure as dedicated as it is free, and the precision of his designs for Hermès corresponds with our passions and respect for heritage.
