Perfume connoisseurs of the region rejoice as there's a new store in town dedicated exclusively to scent. Hermès has just announced the opening of its brand new parfumerie in Mall of the Emirates, only the second store globally to solely stock the house's fragrance creations. 

The space was designed to evoke all senses, not just smell, with a colour palette reminiscent of the shades found in the Middle Eastern desert. Elegant and chic, the store invites visitors to explore the world of Hermès perfumes for both men and women in the most intimate of settings. 

To celebrate the opening of the store, Hermès Parfums is giving its clients an exclusive preview of the five new scents in the Hermessence collection by Christine Nagel including two perfumes and three eau de toilettes housed in either fine leather or precious lizard cases.
