Hermes – Un Jardin apres la Mousson

  • Pin it

Because this site is about personal experience, today I wanted to share yet another one with you.

And this time it’s about a perfume – Hermès “Un Jardin après la Mousson”. Few years back I went a lot with floral scents and one of my perfumes at the time was “Un Jardin en Mediterannée” – quite special, I would say, and refreshing (especially in summertime). It was a scent came from a two-series, the second one was named “Un Jardin sur le Nil”. Now I find out they added a third one, and I was curious what it’s like.

Hermes - Un Jardin apres la Mousson
The official announcement said it’s about a region in India named Kerala, renowned for its spices:

“In India, your senses are arrested everywhere, you have a desire for calm. This was the idea of après la Mousson. While India abounds in colors and noise, with this fragrance, one has a moment of rest.”

So how about it? Have you had any experience with the “Jardin” series? Or maybe you just got the idea to try them out now?

Many scentophiles hate it but I was fascinated because it smells like a gin, tonic and lime I had once on the terrace of a house in Northern Thailand. Also like markets in Vietnam, like a rainy day I spent in the ancient city of Hue. Spice, coconut milk, heat and wet palm fronds.
