Annalise Fard, Director of Home & Beauty at Harrods and Chairman of The Fragrance Foundation, will be your host for the evening discovering more about Christine’s outstanding and fascinating career.

Since the 1st of January 2016, Christine Nagel has held the position of «Perfumer - Director of Creation» at Hermès Parfums.

Christine Nagel was born in Geneva, Switzerland of an Italian mother. She charmingly combines her scientific expertise, the rigorousness of her Swiss birthplace and radiant Italian generosity.

She has achieved great successes, with many landmark creations such as Narcisso Rodriguez for Her, Miss Dior Chérie, Si Giorgio Armani and the Jo Malone fragrances . She joined Hermès Parfums in 2014 as exclusive Perfumer Creator. This choice arose as much from her talent and her signature as from her passionate but unassuming personality. In 2016, Christine signed her first fragrance for Hermès: Eau de rhubarbe écarlate. The perfumer quickly went on to pay homage to Hermès femininity with Galop d’Hermès. A rare fragrance, it expresses her view of the woman she perceives to be profoundly free and uncompromising.

Next, Christine turned her attention to Eau des Merveilles Bleue, to infuse it with childhood reminiscence. Today, with Twilly d’Hermès, Christine reveals another aspect of Hermès femininity. Inspired by the young women of today who subvert everything so freely

At the crossroads of the excellence and of the essential, the story of Christine Nagel’s creation is drawn through subtle, sensual, bold perfumes. 

“I like to create scents that are as different from one another as possible. I enjoy switching from a very pure, stylised structure to a more colorful, perhaps even carnal creation.But with a running theme, a guiding principle: the material.”, she says.

And today, Christine Nagel brings her colours to Hermès Parfums. Agnes de Villers, President for Hermès Perfumes, welcomes her arrival with these words: “with the arrival of Jean-Claude Ellena in 2004, Hermès set out on a new route. Ten years later, we are enriching our story with a new and beautiful encounter. We share the conviction that Christine Nagel will put her personality and talent at the service of our métier at Hermès”.
