“It is with young women in mind, by observing their lives, that I created Twilly d’Hermès. Free, bold, connected, mischievous and irreverent, they turn expectation on its head, swim against the tide, impose their own rhythm, invent a brand new tempo” – Christine Nagel
It is in this feminine and independent spirit that Christine Nagel composed Twilly d’Hermès. Ginger, tuberose and sandalwood are reinvented to form an unexpected combination. A hand-tied silk ribbon playfully adorns the bottle as the finishing touch.
A fragrance is like a state secret. Apart from the “nose” at Hermès, nobody knows its complete formula. Production is barely less mysterious. Dozens of raw materials for perfumery converge at the Vaudreuil site. Blends and transfers from one vat to another, follow on from one another, interspersed with pauses for maceration. Finally the formula is chilled to 0°C before filtering.
Once bottled, with the pump in place and the cap closed, the fragrance will travel in a leather sheath in the case of Hermessence, or be girdled in a stirrup for Galop d’Hermès. Nestling in its box, it is at last ready for its task of seduction.
