Reviews of Un Jardin en Méditerranée

I won’t say I dislike it, but it’s only a bitter fig fragrance with an eau de cologne base. Not much. Performances are right.

Richest of Jardins,
Circle sea's fragrant bounty
Beyond its own dreams.

My second favorite of the Jardin line.

It smells of figs and foliage, which immediately conjures up a vision of a Mediterranean garden baking in the afternoon sun. There's a bit of peppery bitterness that's very pleasant against the sweetness of the fig. I don't get much citrus.

The main issue I have with this fragrance is that it doesn't last on my skin, which is a problem I have with all the Jardins. I would, therefore, prefer Philosykos if I wanted a figs-in-a-garden type scent because it has a similar effect on me and it lasts much longer.

*edit: I changed my mind, drastically! I now actually like this scent better than Philosykos, because the greenness is much more pronounces in the Hermes offering, and the fig is not as milky/creamy, which suits me better. Weirdly enough, the more I keep trying it the longer it seems to last too, so good news all around.

Really impressed. I love the fragrance, sunshine and fig trees. Earthy and bright. I could wear this to the beach or to the office.

I like the scent on my girlfriend too but she finds it a little masculine.

Performance was this biggest suprise. I am getting around 8 hours of longevity with moderate projection. I expected to have to search for this frangrance on my skin but it finds my nose throughout the day.

I will be looking to acquire the rest of the Hermes un jardin line.

Meh. I had blind bought this from the Net. I did want to like this one, but I found it slanting too far to the feminine side for my tastes for a unisex scent. It's an acquired-taste fragrance, not for everyone

Maybe it's the fig or mastic notes? I'd suggest testing it out first at better department stores, then decide for yourself if ULeM is your sort of scent.

The scent of green figs...

Let me start by saying that I am a huge fan of the Un Jardin series of fragrances. I love the work of Jean-Claude Ellena and find that his work is nothing short of superb in every aspect. I had been wanting to try this perfume for a long time.

Finally, I've been wearing it recently and have enjoyed it. My initial preconception was that it would be a sweet, juicy fig type of scent, much like Acqua di Parma - Blu Mediterraneo: Fico di Amalfi, however here is a green figgy scent which is more in keeping with the same style as Un Jardin Sur le Nil, another green fragrance. I must say that as a fig perfume, I do prefer the Acqua di Parma version. However this one does make me feel that if you didn't like Sur le Nil (ie you found it "too green") then you woudl like this instead.

Overall, this is well worth a try in my opinion, if you like fresh, spring & summer fragrances with substance. A masterful effort from Jean-Claude Ellena.
