Haute, heavy-duty perfume at Hermès

Haute, heavy-duty perfume at Hermès

At the risk of sounding terribly outré, there’s something sexy about weight. (Such irony.) We mean the solidity of great design of course: an impeccably crafted kitchen drawer that slides silently and heavily shut, the muffled click of a heavy luxury-car door closing, and a substantial and beautiful cosmetics item.

Heft is quality, substance, history. So if you’re into heavy too, look to the wonderfully weighty Hermès Padlock perfume bottle. Styled in gold or silver finish, the designer spray bottle nestles satisfyingly in one’s hand like an heirloom in the making. (And slips effortlessly into a Christmas stocking too, we should add.)

Refillable with your favourite spritz from the brand’s signature choice of Calèche, 24 Faubourg, Kelly Calèche or Parfum des Merveilles, this clutch-sized flacon adds heavy-duty style to your perfume-loving, on-the-go reality.

Her long-held love of fragrance led her to launch The Whale & The Rose, a destination for all things perfume-related. Now, when she indulges in a crazy-expensive bottle of fragrance, she can do so guilt-free. Well almost. It’s all in the name of research after all.
