The Terre d’Hermès collection offers two new H bottles in limited editions 2018
The Hermès house first began its history as a Parisian saddler and harness maker. If the equestrian world has always remained intimately linked to its history, it has gradually transformed, making it possible to make sets of luggage, fashion accessories and, more recently, perfumes. Today, Hermès offers a wide range of fragrances. Nevertheless, one of the most famous of them is called Terre d’Hermès. This iconic juice is available in the form of an Eau de Toilette and an Eau de Parfum . Today, these two complementary essences are offered two new bottles signed by Cyrille Diatkine.
Terre d’Hermès, a strong fragrance of symbols
First of all, let’s start by discussing the general philosophy of Terre d’Hermès perfumes. If these juices have been so successful, it is quite simply because they release a universal message. They are inspired by our founding material: earth. From then on, they materialize the image of a man standing, facing the elements, in full possession of his means. Terre d’Hermès immediately appears as a source of appeasement but also as a compendium of power. Terre d’Hermès is a journey, a crossing of the elements that invites us to rediscover the richness of our Earth.
The two variants of Terre d’Hermès
The first version of Terre d’Hermès appeared in 2006, in the form of an Eau de Toilette. It was then a woody and spicy juice, offering us all the riches produced by the earth in one and the same breath. Terre d’Hermès Eau de Toilette begins with a citrus cocktail dominated by grapefruit and orange. This digest of gaiety then continues with a more mineral scent. Pepper and pink berries come to heckle the whole and give it more impertinence. A vegetal scent of geranium and patchouli reinforces the elegance of Terre d’Hermès Eau de Toilette. Finally, the whole is wrapped in benzoin and vetiver.
Then, in 2009, Hermès decided to reinterpret this juice to make it an Eau de Parfum . More luxurious, this composition displays a rare density. The power of citrus fruits is accentuated by shiso while the mineral accord of this composition is also reinforced. The woods, on the other hand, have been somewhat stripped.
When Cyrille Diatkine reinterprets the famous Flacon H d’Hermès
The real revisit of 2018 is actually the visual of the Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum Terre d’Hermès bottles. The latter kept their original silhouette but were reworked by Cyrille Diatkine. It must be said that Hermès no longer seems to be able to do without his talent and never stops calling on him. Here, he simply integrated oblique and silver lines on the walls of the Hermès H bottles, echoing the play of cloud images. The Terre d’Hermès collection therefore offers itself a new symbolic narrative, a journey imbued with strength and poetry, this time sublimated by a master of design.
