Un Jardin en Méditerranée fragrance notes

Reviews of Un Jardin en Méditerranée

When Un Jardin en Méditerranée hit the skin, I immediately thought of pine, like what I had encountered in Annick Goutal's Ninféo Mio, which seems to be the fig leaf note that tricked me. I don't get much citrus. It's not aquatic to me, either. It has woodsy and aromatic caracters to my nose, green without sharpness. After about 3 or 4 hours, some creamy fig sweetness surfaces, but never overpowers the woods and aromatic plants. I also get a whiff of rich creamy pistachio at some moments, but it's very subtle.

The sillage is close, but it stays solidly on my skin for about 6 hours, which is really not bad for an EDT in such a hot summer day. While Ninféo Mio has a similar theme but has a lot of other stuff going on, Un Jardin en Méditerranée remains firmly to the fig tree theme and clean. A sort of pick-me-up fragrance, but with excellent quality and interesting caracters.

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.
