Hermann Gourmet Cosmetics are not just cosmetics. They are a complete distilled sensation, a concept that Hermann Gourmet Cosmetics calls “the cosmetics of experience”. This idea sparked the imagination, ignited creativity and the “Memory Distillery” was born. A dynamic, ever-growing project inspired by life, that aims to capture the essence of a specific memory through fragrance and share it with the world. The most exciting aspect of the “Memory Distillery” is that one of the distilled memories could be yours!
“When I was developing Miss Gardenia, I wanted to bring to our clients the experience of standing inside a Cypriot garden in full bloom,“ says Philio Hermann, the founder of Hermann Gourmet Cosmetics. “Gardens in Cyprus are an intrinsic part of our heritage and, for many of us, the familiar scents can 'unlock' precious memories. I link my source of inspiration to a precious memory from my childhood; the gardenia flowers in my grandmother's garden. Miss Gardenia is the distilled essence of my memory from that garden, which is also why my grandmother’s portrait is on the Miss Gardenia label.”
