    Collections Parfums-Jardins

    Shower gels scented with Un Jardin en Méditerranée, Un Jardin sur le Nil, Un Jardin Après la Mousson, Un Jardin sur le Toit (200ml, 39€).

    Good move from Hermes! They are a bit pricey, though. If I could find them on sale I'd definitely be interested in some of the shower gels in the Jardin-line.

    The old 'Huile de Bain' used to be very good quality - they sound promising.

    I love love love the existing Un Jardin sur le Nil Body Lotion. The quality is amazing, I would wear it without the scent & it's so heavily scented I didn't even need to use the fragrance.

    I also once had a travel size of the Eau d'Orange Verte Shower Gel, but the longevity was super fleeting.

    The one that I'm most excited about owning is the Eau de Mandarin Ambree. I think that will make a fantastic shower gel, lotion or soap.

    Good. I love bath product, and the hermes seem perfect for the summer. Of course, I'd have loved a bath oil ...

    Unfortunately that's the downside of many ancillary products.

    Oh, is that Hermes?

    From an cursory look at the colors & presentation i thought it was Boots Pharmacy or Walgreen's or some generic pharmacy brand.

    for swap/sale:

    +1 on that Eau de Mandarin Ambree. Sounds like a great way to start a Sunday morning.

    As for the look, they're not bad - bath products are always in pastic. May be they come in a (useless) box.
