When the Hermes palace went up a few years ago I made a habit of stopping by on a monthly basis to sample the fragrances and soak in the calming atmosphere.
This is a great place to watch tourists shop for silk scarves or see rich octogenarians search for the perfect leather leash for fluffy.
The items are all so decedent and I covet them all. The staff does there best not to appear forbidding and the store has a warm glow due to all the wood. Well worth the trip inside to window shop.
