“While Paris is a round city, New York is vertical, bathed in light,” says Céline Ellena, head nose for Hermès home fragrances. Fittingly, she found inspiration for her candle, Shop Around the Corner—which debuts this month to mark the new Hermès boutique at Manhattan’s Brookfield Place—on the High Line. With grassy, brambly, and earthy notes and a concrete accord, it’s not your typical bouquet, but, she says, “blended together, it’s a pleasant ditty.”
