Ohh.. I Lòve Hermès! The French brand has released its debut collection of scents designed for the home by Céline Ellena and presented in a stunning 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 colors: Des Pas sur la Neige (taupe), Temps de Pluie (celadon), Fenêtre Ouverte (lagoon), Champ Libre (sulphur) and A Cheval ! (pumpkin).

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). 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 Perfumeur and The Different Company.
Born in Rouen, Bardet trained at the École nationale supérieure des Arts décoratifs and has worked with some of the biggest names in design. His latest project, entitled ‘L’Usage des jours,’ comprises 365 ceramic objects created in the course of one year.
The collection will be available at Hermès stores and other select stockists. Prices range from €62 for a set of four horses to €350 for a 1,100g candle.
