Summary: The ginger and pepper really pop out to my nose, at least during the first 30 minutes. I also get a moist, wet, rainy vibe. This scent really gives me a great visual image of what Ellena had in mind when creating this. I've had the same experience with Un Jardin Sur Le Toit.
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.
Excerpt: Overall, a lovely perfume. Definitely very sweet for those who are accustomed to other Hermes perfumes, but the initial sweetness definitely subsides after about 30 minutes when it mixes with your natural chemistry/oils.
Excerpt: It is a beautiful piece created by JCE. It is different from the other bottles in the jardin series, starting with a melony and spicy kind of note. After a while, the scent ends up being fresh, aquatic and clean, and it stays linear throughout.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Long-Lasting
Excerpt: 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. <br />Loving Hermes for men and women more and more.<br />Fragrance X great price and great service as ever.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Great Smell, Not Overpowering, Sensual
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.
