Why these shower gels are so much more than just that.
Because they come from the House of Hermès, one of the most luxurious brands on the planet. Because, just by sitting there, these cocktail-coloured potions will elevate the state of your shower and uplift the most quotidian task of dirt removal, transporting you to the brand’s flagship store, 24 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris, where an Hermès scarf flag flutters from the roof. Because, yes, you actually do need to enrobe yourself in all things expensive and Frenchsmelling before facing the world every morning. And because it’s another reason to have more sleepovers: Your guest(s) can bask in the aromatic goodness too. Just be sure to choose guests who are shower-gel-worthy.
