Ellena's wet, earthy spicefield

Deefit, parfumo.net
4 May 2013
  • 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. Ellena is a wonderful man! It's almost as if I'm walking through the spicefields in India after a heavy rain. This is very spicy but in a fresh way, though I don't find this an everyday scent at all.

Clever juxtaposition of "watery" versus "spicy"

Gold, parfumo.net

  • 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...

Unusually green

M from Sydney, fragrancex.com

  • Summary: Very unusual because of the melon element, since it's not a traditional floral smell. Great in warm weather. Fresh and evocative, it's not something you smell on lots of people so it really becomes a signature scent.
  • Pros: Clean & Fresh, Melon vegetal smell

  • Summary: A spicy ginger and melon scent. It works great on a hot summer day as it's light and not too overpowering. The one thing that really bothers me about this fragrance is that is has no lasting power on me! The scent disappears within the hour.

  • Summary: I found this to be a unique scent, and definitely wearable, but it completely disappears after only an hour. Completely gone...even if you press your nose directly to the skin where it was applied.

  • Summary: This is the first perfume that really grabbed me as being unusual in a long time. I get mostly ginger from it & other clean healthy foodie/fruit/veggie notes! i enjoy it - its crispy and clean as others have noted but without smelling like a household cleaner - as many "clean" perfumes end up like.Is not my style of perfume but i do enjoy it!

  • Summary: I REALLY wanted to like this scent as I am a huge Hermes fan, but just as the others in the "Un Jardin..." series, this was a no-go for me. I liked the initial scent when sprayed on, but as it dried down this had a really mouldy note (as someone pointed out below already). I nicknamed this fragrance "Un Chien Apres La Mousson", because it exactly reminded me of that - a wet dog after the rain.

  • Summary: Un Jardin Après la Mousson stroke me at first as yet another peppery-dry Elena scent (similar to recent creations, such as Osmanthe Yunnan, Paprika Brazil and Kelly Caleche). It seemed indistinct in that context for the first 2 seconds. And than came a surprise (well, not quite surprising because earlier reviews of the scent suggested note in that direction; yet still the effect was quite strange): this is neither watermelon nor melon, but rather – a ripe, juicy...
