Hermès partners with Wissam Shawkat for a new bespoke perfume bottle
Exclusive to the GCC
Available from September 15, exclusively in all Hermès boutiques around the GCC, the famed French fashion house teamed up with Wissam Shawkat to create a unique Arabic type for the special edition L'Ambre des Merveilles bottle.
The story of L'Eau des Merveilles is a poetic tale inspired by the way the house of Hermès looks at the world, as Jean-Claude Ellena, the in-House perfumer of Hermès, created a magical scent developed from the original woody, amber theme.
"With L'Elixir, I wanted a tantalizing, mouth-watering composition. With L'Eau Claire, I was looking for clarity, transparency and lightness. With Ambre, the woman becomes sensual and mysterious. For this new chapter, I wanted to relate one of the mysteries of amber, hovering between a delicious treat and sensuality, where vanilla meets the warmth of labdanum, and the moist quality of patchouli." Jean-Claude explained.
