A New Hermes Perfumer: The Nose Knows

A New Perfumer at Hermès

I have only met one nose in my life. No one told me her name. They simply whispered, “she’s THE nose.” I can’t imagine the pressure of having such gifted olfactory senses. Are yours so heightened that you can smell things a mile away? Christine Nagel’s are! She’s developed more luxury fragrances than we can even count, including Miss Dior Cherie and a slew of Jo Malone London scents, and starting in Spring 2014, she’ll be the new Hermes perfumer. Fans of the house’s resident perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena need not worry, though. In a statement released by Hermes, the company explained that, “Ellena’s wish is to begin a process of transmission of the philosophy and creativity of Hermes Parfums, thereby establishing the way for a happy succession when the time comes.” So there you have it! Are you excited to see what Christine comes up with?

  1. Hello,
    I’ve recently started getting headaches with strong perfume smells. And perfume fragrances that I used to love using earlier, give me a headache and nauseous feeling now. Would you be able to suggest some mild but long lasting perfume names.
