The French brand has released its debut collection of scents designed for the home by Céline Ellena and presented in a selection of objets d’art by Guillaume Bardet.
The new Hermès home fragrance collection comprises five perfumes, with each fragrance bearing its own story and five colours: Des Pas sur la Neige (taupe), Temps de Pluie (celadon), Fenêtre Ouverte (lagoon), Champ Libre (sulphur) and À Cheval ! (pumpkin). The collection was mixed by Céline Ellena, daughter of Jean-Claude Ellena, the head of fragrance at Hermès. The younger Ellena has previously produced fragrances for L’Artisan Parfumeur and The Different Company.
There are three families of perfumed objects designed by Bardet that carry the scents: a paper origami horse, a ceramic pebble and a candle bowl (available in a further choice of
three sizes). Born in Rouen, Bardet trained at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs and has worked with some of the biggest names in design.
The collection will be available from December 1 in Hermès stores and other select stockists.
