Summary: Hendricks Gin and Apres La Mousson seem unlikely bedfellows but the mind of this reviewer pays homage to Passage to India, A Jewel in the Crown and a nip of W. Somerset Maugham into the bargain. There is a metholated burst at the opening and the gin kicks in. How odd that a Frenchman encapsulated the Raj in this way. I observe the gamine eyes of the Fishing Fleet narrowing at the spiced nuances of ALM.
Summary: I want this! I got a little sample years ago and I'm trying not to finish it because I really cannot afford to buy a normal size one! Definitely a great and particular scent, one if the best I've ever smelled! Waiting for someone who gives it to me as a gift!
Summary: After reading mixed reviews and deciding to give it a try, this perfume is better than I expected - soft and feminine to my nose. A sweet note reminds me of tuberose but not so pungent. Loving Hermes for men and women more and more. Fragrance X great price and great service as ever. I buy all my perfumes here now.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Great Smell, Not Overpowering, Sensual
Summary: This the most wonderful scentI have ever come across. Quite literally, when I smelled this I thought: this is what paradise smells. i'd never smelled anything quite like it: it smells of cardamon (which I usually avoid), herbs, pepper and... water, somehow? I'm not good at describing fragrance, I never know the right words/notes. But this is wondrous! My only gripe with this is that it does not last long on my skin. Oh, and the price....
Summary: In his recent book "Journal d'un parfumeur" Ellena wonders why this EdT from the Jardin-Collection flopped. I'm a fan of Monsieuer Ellena and I think he is right about many things he says about the relationship between perfume&art. His fragrances are created in his mind, he "writes perfumes" and is - what a rare case in the industry - an independent artist striving to achieve harmony, simplicity and emotional depth in a fragrance, always leaving some intentional gaps in...
Summary: I originally found this perfume during a shopping trip on a cruise in Saint Thomas. When I ran out I looked online and was delighted to find the same fragrance I fell in love with for much less. My order arrived on time and I received a discount coupon for future savings. I will order again.
Summary: I was so very hesitant to try this. When I did, I was looking for a spring fragrance that was cool yet had some zing to it, as it's still relatively cold here in the spring so I decided to give it a go. I was always afraid of it because of the negative reviews, and the fact that I loathe melon. I mean I hate it. Period. I never went through a 'cucumber melon' stage when I was young, I hate watermelon flavored/scented things, just not a fan. Except for real melon.
Summary: I am a fan of Hermes. I love almost all of its scents ... except this one. On me it smells like rotten vegetation in a humid environment. Yuck! I tried to like it. I gave it innumerable tries. I used to work at Sephora and I would always spray this on. But the result was always the same: rotten vegetation. I'll stick to the two other Jardins and skip this one. Proves that nothing is perfect. Not even Hermes.
