Luxury fashion brand Hermès has unveiled its stand-alone perfume library, a first of its kind boutique, on 225 Liberty Street at Brookfield Place, New York City. The new retail location will focus solely on scents, set in a space that boasts minimalist wood shelving and illuminated scent displays. The boutique itself has been designed in a luxe yet simplistic style. The store facade is covered in concrete and glass with subtle and elegant pops of color — provided by prints and decals that borrow from Hermes’ iconic silk scarves. Visitors enter the boutique passing through a symbolic garden that features a staircase that leads nowhere while a video-projection collage called Oasis, by Brooklyn-based artist Daniel Gordon, is prominently displayed.
The 1000-foot, perfume library is a collaboration between the luxury brand, RDAI and RF Studio architects to celebrate the company’s vast scent range, including their home-scents range while also providing unique services such as the chance to customize a Hermessence in the leather casing of your choice and have it monogrammed.
