A new garden for Hermès - Un Jardin sur le Toit

by 10 May 2011

Hermès has recently launched Un Jardin sur le Toit, the latest addition to Les Jardins Hermès line, which featured its first perfume, Un Jardin Méditerranée in 2003 and was followed by Un Jardin sur el Nil and Un Jardin après la Mousson.

This year's theme is "contemporary artisans" as the maison celebrates artisans both past and present. Therefore, Jean-Claude Ellena, Hermès' in-house perfumer is faced must decide what story can be told about these artisans? What new waters can be explored? After the rain, the river and the sea… we return to the source, as one turns back in time. Happy as Ulysses to return home. What passage could be more beautiful after numerous wanderings than a return to hometown at the rooftop garden of the mason at 24 Faubourg, Saint Honoré.
