Happy Friday 13th. 🙂
This cute and tiny bottle is Hermès Un Jardin Sur Le Nil EdT. This was first released in 2005, perfumer is Jean-Claude Ellena. Like most Jardins this smells kinda green. And like most Hermès, this is light footed and airy. It does still last about five hours on me (just very light).
Have you ever plucked tomatoes from the stem? It smells like that, except with added citrus. Very refreshing yet weirdly enough, kinda super elegant. When the zesty citrus leaves I smell something lightly sweeter (in comparison, not generally sweet). But I really can’t put my finger on it. It could be any note.
Right now I am in the mood for that kind of thing. Winter has gone on long enough. It’s not the sort of perfume I could wear everyday (I could wear no perfume everyday, that sounds so boring) and I think when I wear it too often I also stop noticing the smell. But once a week or whenever it is such a refreshing perfume. It’s funny because usually I’m not into green perfumes, but I do like citrus, so that works out somehow.
Try it if: you feel like you need a cool unsweetened drink.
