Born in 1801 in Germany, Thierry Hermès grew up in a mixed family (French father and German mother). After the Hermes family decided to move to France in 1828, Thierry also decided to establish Hermès. Opening its doors for the first time in 1837, the harness workshop invited visitors at its location in the Grands Boulevards district of Paris. Serving mainly European noblemen, Thierry Hermès created high-quality bridles and wrought harnesses for the carriage trade, which helped him win several awards.
After the retirement of Charles-Émile Hermès, his sons took over management and rebranded the company as “Hermès Frères” (The Hermes Brothers). Hermes became so popular for its high-quality products that it soon began supplying high-quality saddles for the czar of Russia. In 1918, Hermès designed the first leather golf jacket with a zipper, created especially for Edward, the Prince of Wales.
Hermès history intertwined with perfume ever since the 1930s. Each perfume is a story within the impressive collections of Hermès perfumes, opening up the owner to a fantasy world. Since 1951, the company started to create several fragrances for both men and women, as well as some popular unisex lines. Hermes’ completely unique style of exploring the freshness of Cologne echoes throughout the lavish expression of pure pleasure.
Hermes perfume production represents a register of olfactory moments that praises the relationship between craftsman expertise and artistic sensitivity. Acting as both artist and craftsman, Hermès has invested its unparalleled savoir-faire and creative style in all of its perfumed designs. Today we will take a peek at some of the most iconic fragrances that bear the Hermes signature.
