It's almost more a confession than an item for a news column - and maybe I should whisper it rather than type it and publish it, but here you go: Hermès will launch a new perfume composition from the end of summer 2017...
Under the seal of secrecy, The Scented Salamander can however utter this "Le parfum des filles d'Hermès", the perfume of Hermès girls. Then, listen to the silent pause.
Then again, this piece of information: public launch date is set for August 28th 2017.
