    Default Hermès Un Jardin sur la Lagune

    Now Smell This reported about this new Hermes Jardin fragrance:

    Hermès will launch Un Jardin sur la Lagune, a new unisex fragrance (the sixth) in the brand's Jardin series. The last was Le Jardin de Monsieur Li.

    Un Jardin sur la Lagune was inspired by a 'secret walled garden' in Venice, built by an English Lord. The notes feature Madonna lily, magnolia, pittosporum, wood and aquatic notes.

    Un Jardin sur la Lagune was developed by perfumer Christine Nagel.

    Hermès Un Jardin sur la Lagune will debut in March, in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette.



    Please post your thoughts about this here, I read some comments on another thread and decided this needed its own thread.

    Venice references in perfumery are always interesting because the town has an obvious appeal, plus in the past it traded with the east spices and perfumes, but the lagoon itself quite stinks, as all lagoons. So let's hope it's about the garden, not the lagoon.

    Cool - let's see what she does! I tried to like this series but the backstory was generally way more interesting than the actual scent.

    Aquatic notes and me not really being a fan of the existing Jardin line says I'm not excited about this. Nevertheless, I will try it if I'll see it in the store, why not?

    I'm the same psebi101. Hopefully this one is more salty and less 'fresh'.

    I also struggle with certain lily notes, so I am wondering how this one will be.

    I tried it very briefly in a store today, and was pleasantly surprised. The series have failed to make an impression on me so far, but this might be a standout. Fresh but also interesting and with some gravitas. Not very citrus-y. Will definately try again!

    Aquatic notes and lily scare me - but even Twilly hooked me eventually, so I'm always intrigued by Nagel's work. I just hope it's not another Citron Noire or whatever that tragedy was called.

    First wearing. Two sprays to the neck, two hours later...
    Really enjoying this fragrance. Excellent sillage and so far the longevity is holding up well.
    This is definitely not an aquatic. There is a salty note tempered by interesting spices a la Lolita Lempicka. Aniseed and licorice and the vibe from Lempicka's Fleur de Corail are present, but toned way down. Lempicka's fragrances are too overpowering for me, but this is really beautiful.

    Sounds like Jardin line perfumer reboot success!

    Is it just me, or is the concept of this perfume stolen from "Venezia Giardini Segreti" by La Via del Profumo (https://attarperfumes.net/shop/olfac...ab-description)?

    Anyway, will order samples.

    Just you? I don’t know; seems to me the “secret” walled gardens of Venice are quite famous, and artists have always, and will always, draw inspiration from beautiful and well-known cities and landscapes. Doesn’t at all mean they are stealing from other artists just because they are working from similar concepts. I wouldn’t say Korovin was stealing from Monet by doing impressionistic paintings of Paris streets; their styles are unique to each of them, but the inspiration and concept is the same.

    Received my 100ml bottle today. Very pleasantly surprised. A very nice woody floral, understated.

    Got nose to this last night. It’s got more heft to it than the rest of the Jardins series (closer to the fruity Eau line in that regard), but it’s still quite light and wearable. I didn’t get any magnolia, but there was a slightly marshy aspect that lends itself to ‘water flower’ of some type.

    Not for me, but a good development in the range and a more interesting direction. Un Jardin En Mediterranee is my SOTD. The fresh fig opening is lovely, and I wondered how I’d managed to overlook it. 15 minutes in its all soapy musk and a hint of dark berries, and I remember
    Chypreish”:
    /ˈSHēpRAiSH/
    adjective
    (of a person or expression) to be desirous of an abundance of chypre.
    "Today, she was feeling chypreish”

    I received a sample and my first impression is negative. It smells like a cheap, more floral version of "Pathetique". It has the same lotion-thing going on. I dislike "Pathetique", so this one is so far not to my liking as well. I will give it more wearings, so maybe my opinion will change but I doubt that. And I still can't get over the fact that the concept is so similar to "Venezia Giardini Segreti".
