The Violette Volynka eau de toilette from the Hermessence collection is an elegant, unexpected combination: between masculine and feminine, and two unique materials. “I opted for Volynka leather top notes. Its scent is so strong that I wanted to pull it in the opposite direction by pairing it with a delicate flower: violets.” Christine Nagel, Hermès perfumer.
The Violette Volynka eau de toilette bottle stands out with its radiant, powerful purple leather cap and bottle.
THE HERMÈS DETAIL
Boasting a striated grain, brown-red shade and burnt wood scent, Volynka leather tells the story of vegetable tanning. Incredibly durable, it perpetuates age-old techniques: the grinding of oak bark or soaking in birch bark solutions. The long-forgotten know-how was revived in 2017 by Hermès artisans and old hides found in the hold of a shipwreck.
