    Default Similar To Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil

    Hello, basenotes. This is my first post here. I'd like/love to know of any fragrances that are similar to my beloved Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil. Un Jardin Apres La Mousson was okay, but there has to be something better. I've had suggestions thrown at me including Chanel No. 19, Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte, L'Artisan Parfumeur Fleur de Liane and the "new" Dior Eau Fraiche (but that one isn't doesn't appear to be offered in the US ) to name a few. I've already decided to give L'Artisan Parfumeur's Fleur de Liane a blind shot. Any other suggestions would make my day. I'll be purchasing 2 more floral green scents before I return to the roses.

    Hmmm, I also love UJSLN and I love some of the green florals you mentioned, but would not necessarily say that they remind me of each other. Nil is kind of a Franken-fume with bits and pieces of multiple scent-genres re-animated into something truly unique. It has citrus--the grapefruit opening. It has fruit--the unripened mango. It has oriental qualities--the incense and dry woods. It has fresh, aquatic qualities--the wet tone and the lotus/calamus accord. And it has some green floral qualities, but I wouldn't call it a green floral like Chanel No. 19 or Ma Griffe or Chamade.

    That said, lighter orientals with citrus may be the way to go. Check out Shalimar Eau Legere, Shaal Nur, and Habit Rouge. Eau Sauvage, Diorella, and Cristalle edt might be worth trying too because they have citrus and light chypre-accords and musk. Terre d'Hermes might be another JC Ellena scent to check out beyond the Nil, Mousson, and Mediterranee Jardin series. Good luck!

    Eau de Pamplemousse Rose by Hermes is pretty darn close.

    Cristalle Eau Verte starts with citrus and green, but the drydown is evocative of air fresheners. Definitely sample first.

    I agree with antaeusintheair--you may want to try the original Cristalle, either in EDP or EDT. It is a citrus-green, more classic smelling than UJSLN, and quite lovely. Also, Estee Lauder Private Collection Jasmine White Moss is in the same ballpark.

    Un Jardin sur le Nil is a unique work of art. There is nothing like it.

    Fico di Amalfi by Acqua di Parma reminds me of Un Jardin Sur la Nil.

    Love the sur le nil as well, haven't smelt anything that can replicate the combination of green mango and citrus. Good luck with your search!
