Excerpt: I started using it since last year.It is very nice,not too strong.I got many compliments from my friends.it is very good for spring and summer.I use little stronger perfume in the Fall and Winter
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Not too strong
Summary: I do not know about perfume notes, so I can't say very much there. I know that I don't like vanilla and food scents, and this is NONE of that. I've read that this scent is fig, which sounds about right, because I love it. My husband bought me a giant bottle (100 mL) of this fragrance for Christmas a few years back. Despite my careful keeping of the bottle in its box in my medicine cabinet, it has turned a darker amber color. No matter, the fragrance seems fine.
Summary: I discovered this in Morocco 7 years ago. I was attracted to the bottle (loved the colors), presumed it would be some sticky-sweet thing, and then got hit with the wondrous scent of the exact type of perfume I love. This is a very vegetal/herbal/woodsy--the latter being cedar--fragrance that is not for all. Do you ever wear herbal/woodsy men's cologne? I know I'm not the only one who does this! It's like a feminine version of that and very intriguing.
Summary: ok, if this smells like Phylosikos than I'm Marilyn Monroe!! since I'm not, you figure it out for yourselves;))))))))) this wonderful Hermes's creation smells like a Provencal summer, with all the ''right'' plants in all the right places...Imortelle,sage,citruses,pinch of pepper,green mango,fig leaf (I smell sun dried fig fruit instead)... Un J.sur le Nile is vile compared to this serene juice...
Summary: After sampling this at Sephora recently, I searched diligently for a bargain online until I was able to purchase a full bottle. Received Mediterranee in the mail today and I'm so pleased I took the time and money to get the 100 ml bottle. It's such a classy, refreshing scent. There's not much is any sweetness or wetness which makes the scent quite unique to me. It's dry, fresh, woody and vegetal.
Summary: I have yet to purchase this but fully intend to. This is the ultimate summer scent. It is fresh but not "clean". The smell I got coming through quite stongly was fig. I happen to love the smell of fig, so this perfume is certainly for me. It has a warm, comforting essence to it, It reminds me of an evening meal at a Tuscan villa with a touch of sunburnt skin and a very gentle breeze picking up the green smells of the Italian countryside. (Is that ridiculous)??
Summary: I tried this with some reservation since I spend my childhood summers in the Mediterranean and thus have made formative olfactory memories of the area. I was wondering how Ellena would interpret the warmth and beauty of the region. I was not disappointed. This was actually not what I expected, yet truly evocative of a Mediterranean garden. Less floral and more herbal, and that is a great thing.
