    Default Un Jardin Apres La Mousson by Hermes

    I smelled this at nordstorm's today and it was very nice, however, is this women's or men's? It was at the men's section but i'm assuming it is unisex...any thoughs? And what do you think of it?

    It's marketed as unisex. I think the Jardin-line is easily wearable by men and women. Today I was wearing Jardin sur le Nil.
    Wanted: a cap of Bvlgari Th Vert

    Wanted: L' Artisan Timbuktu or Fragonard Concerto

    This is definately unisex. It has the what I call the cantaloupe note and is a marvelous fragrance unlike what you are used to I'm sure. It is more powerful than the other two fragrances in the jardin triad. On the day I came home from surgery I was asked what fragrance I wanted to wear. I chose Apres la Mousson. Out of the delerium of anesthesia and pain medication it provided me with a walk through a tropical garden just after a drenching rain. This fragrance is difficult to put into words. It has to be experienced. It is a little pricey but, worth it. The medication helped but, what a wonderful experience. Wow! The nose at Hermes is a genius.

    Over here its being pushed as a female scent by the SAs, I find it unisex but i don't care much about it.

    It's officially classified as a unisex. But a lot of stores (like Sephora or Macys or Nordstrom) don't have a unisex section, so they put it with the womens' perfumes.

    I have a bottle and really like it. The heavy pepper on top stays throughout and what little flowers are there are really green and indolic, so it never gets girly. To me, it's mostly honeydew melon, cucumber, and pepper.

    Side note: you can find this really cheap online

    i don't like this fragrance, today i went to palacio de hierro an tried
    on my left wrist this one, it is more femenine than masculine
    its the one with more projection, i don't say Better Bcus i'm not enjoying it

    i also tested another fragrances from hermes on my right wrist, i think it is un jardin sur le nil
    or mayBe voyage, i can't rememBer very well=/
    But it is nice and it smells kind of like terre
    mayBe it could even Been mediterranee

    and on the outside part of my left hand
    i applied another fragrance
    i don't rememBer if it was un jardin sur le nil or mediterranee
    But its the stronger one and it's very spicy, dirtier, the openning was strong and Bitter for aBout an hour, But it's Being almost 4 hours
    and the dry down is nicer

    damyum the SA, started to coco washed me and talk aBout how prestiged hermes Brand is
    and how every single hermes fragrances smell for aBout 24 hours

    that i can't rememBer

    lol, sucks, i gotta try them again to distinguish them well

    whats that potent smell in this fragrance, is it mellon ?

    it is so disgusting and penetrating, i tried to wash it with soap
    and it was still there
    then i used alcohol with a cotton, and it was still there
    finally i used detergent and it worked

    the only trouBle now is to get that out of my memory

    ineverthought i was going to dislike a fragrance that much to wash it off

    it finally happened

    unespectedly with a jean claude ellena creation

    i really love terre d'hermes

    But i just don't know who could like this.
    indeed, interesting how taste is different from a person's nose to another

    Unisex melon handsoap. And I'm a Hermes/Ellena fan.

    Burberry sport is similar to this but I find the ginger note in Apres la mouson a bit cloying.

    today i tried it for the second time (didn't like it the first time)
    i did it By accident, i wanted to spray un jardin en mediterranee (love it)
    i've had tried mediterranee Before But i wanted to smell it again
    and then i started sniffing and i started thinking"whaaat... i dont like it that much now... what happened?"

    But as i keep sniffing i realized it was un jardin apress la mousson
    i gave it a deep sniff , and i felt sick , i had to run to the Bathroom
    and i puked(literally)
    it was a horriBle
    first time i tried it i got those sickening melon notes that made me go and wash it off
    actually it is the first fragrances i felt in the need of getting rid off my skin (i hated very irresistiBle By givenchy and fuel for life By diesel, But not that much to feel like washing them off)
    and this second time smelling un jardin apres la mousson
    it reminded me of rotten old cheese, putrid milk from a sick cow and rotten melons
    i've already wash it off, But i can't get it out of my mind

    i wonder who can like this, if someone likes this
    it just cant Be smelling the same thing that i was smelling

    Apres la Mousson is one of those frags I can appreciate but cannot wear. I think it's a beautiful rendition of wet soil and leaves, but I'm not sure this is something I want to smell of. I really like and would gladly wear most of Ellena's creations, but I think of this one as an artistic statement rather than a wearable fragrance.
