The Her­mès Twilly silk scarf is a thing of great ver­sa­til­ity: it can be wrapped around your head, tacked on to a hand­bag or, most fa­mously, worn as a bow. Tu­to­ri­als on how best to con­struct the play­ful Twilly bow are ram­pant on so­cial me­dia – that dy­namic do­main reigned over by stylish young women. It is to them that the house’s lat­est fra­grance Twilly d’Her­mès, by per­fumer Chris­tine Nagel, is ded­i­cated. The scent is a twist of three in­gre­di­ents: ginger, tuberose and san­dal­wood – an un­usual com­bi­na­tion, per­haps, but one that’s meant to re­flect the free, cheer­ful and whim­si­cal traits of youth. The colour­ful pack­ag­ing comes ex­pertly knot­ted like a scarf around the Twilly d’Her­mès bot­tle, with a rib­bon-tie of silk en­cir­cling the cap. Geneva-born per­fume cre­ator Nagel, who joined Her­mès in 2014, is the nose be­hind such distinc­tive fem­i­nine fra­grances as Galop d’Her­mès and Eau des Merveilles Bleue for Her­mès; plus Miss Dior Cherie, Dolce & Gab­bana The One for Woman, Eau de Cartier, Chopard Madness and Versace Woman. Twilly d’Her­mès is now avail­able in-store and costs up to Dh565 for 85ml.
