A play on the iconic ‘Jeremy Scott Wings’ high-top trainer from the Adidas Originals collection, the packaging is unmistakable, its bold flacon takes the form of a crystalline winged sneaker.

Legendary Maison Hermès launched one of the most iconic and timeless perfumes 24, Faubourg in 1995a perfume that stands the test of time. Hermès 24, Faubourg, this perfume of light, composed by Maurice Roucel in 1995, is a Hermès signature right down to its bottle – the square glass is gently curved on the sides with a sense of movement, like a breeze blowing through silk. 24, Faubourg is described as a warm and soft fragrance that invites you to an imaginative world full of sun.

A floral, amber fragrance; a sun-drenched voyage to Mediterranean countries. Pure, glowing and sensual, 24, Faubourg is a fragrance of light.

Hermès 24, Faubourg is a classic yet elegant perfume specially developed to honor the address of Hermès flagship store in Paris. This feminine perfume is a strong weapon of seduction thanks to its refined, floral notes. 24, Faubourg, as with most Maurice Roucel creations (K de Krizia, Gucci Envy, Guerlain L’Instant & Insolence a.o.), it is a rich, luxurious fragrance. It opens with sensual notes of bergamot, smooth orange blossom, exotic ylang-ylang featuring soft amber, peach, tiara flower, jasmine, orris. The base of sandal, pactnouli, amber and vanilla ensure a unique and vibrant experience of undoubted luxury.

It does seem uniquely suited for the kind of woman I imagine would wear Hermes. 24, Faubourg is probably my favorite of Roucel’s florals.
