    Fresh clear perfume, rather exotic due to the cardemom.

    Gin Sling

    Hendricks Gin and Apres La Mousson seem unlikely bedfellows but the mind of this reviewer pays homage to Passage to India, A Jewel in the Crown and a nip of W. Somerset Maugham into the bargain. There is a metholated burst at the opening and the gin kicks in. How odd that a Frenchman encapsulated the Raj in this way. I observe the gamine eyes of the Fishing Fleet narrowing at the nuances of ALM. I'm sure they wore Jicky, thick with quintessential lavender, or whatever preceded it. Come hither, said the spider to the fly, be seduced by the stunning beauty of Indian women who didn't perfume themselves with the contents of a Turkish brothel. This, surely, is what evaporated from their skin. Seduction of a different kind. He's a clever man, that JCE. I recall Jubal Harshaw from Stranger in a Strange Land saying a man can not love one woman completely without loving all women somewhat. Only for the broadminded, this piece of history.

    Pros: Cosmopolitan, Daring, Love of all Humanity
    Cons: Not on your clothing, not this one (even though it's Hermes)

    As noted by others there is the fruit, melon opening with light floral notes. At the heart is an earth with herbs and spices. Relative to the rest of the Un Jardin line, Mousson is between Meditterranee and La Toit. It has more fruit than Mousson, but is less earthy; Conversely it has more earth but less fruit/ floral than Toit.
    Like all in the garden, warm weather and sunlight make this frag shine.

    A restrained but fresh opening with lime, melon vetiver and later a gentle pepper and cardamom note -India-inspired possibly. Intriguing but without the loud opening blast that many other citrus-related cents display without actually keeping this promise. A refreshing summer fragrance that is very close to my skin, but with a surprising longevity of nearly four hours.

    absoutely love this - was heavily complemented as well - smells of "Kerala" indeed! if you have ever been there spices roasted with coconut infused with melon - dry down could have been better than bordering generic, but i am not complaining - my new find i thought i'd never like this given most of this series leans towards the ladies - but i am rocking this and i love it! perhaps i claiming and marketing its a unisex fragrance, hermes done a good job!

    I am surprised to read so many negatives for this scent that manages to be fresh yet elegant, peppery yet soft, pretty without cloying sweetness. Offering a bit more heft and longevity than Ellena's earlier Jardins, Apres La Mousson chases away the Ohio summer heat and humidity blues like nothing else for me since Roucel's Missoni. Very very nice, if not earth-shattering: I will look to invest in a full bottle ASAP.
