Caramel-Gold coloured nectar
I was actually looking for a great & special rose scent (as often ;) - the dear saleswoman in the luxury fragrance house shows me a Hermès scent! Hello? I told you I was looking for a special rose scent...?

But she won't let up and sprayed Jour d'Hermès on an extravagant test strip... Shortly faned through the air she hands it to me... hmmm doesn't smell like rose to me, but quite nicely floral...

He told me to test him on his skin, and he really comes terrific..... Well, somehow I was curious and let it "happen" to me:)

Wow, a gush of citrus and white flowers is flying towards me! "Quite a lot" - I think... The saleswoman sees my astonished expression and asks me how I find him...

... it's really great!
...and that's really not a lie! I really like this caramel yellow nectar...

After a while of chatting with the nice saleswoman and testing countless great (and also a few less great) scents in the luxury fragrance house (a good 2 hours) I notice how I sniff again and again at the handle where she had sprayed Jour d'Hermes on me...

The development of the fragrance is really awesome for me, I am thrilled..... I mainly perceive flowers and citric notes as well as a light touch of musk...

I decided that today is not a rose scent day and decided to give Jour d'Hermes a place of honor in my mirror cabinet --- point for the good saleswoman;)

Delicate and refreshing...
Again, I am impressed by the work of Jean-Claude Ellena. This is an example of something beautiful and something which I think is a classic in the making.
First of all, I think because this task was given to someone like Ellena, the perfume really became something special in terms of female fragrances. It's very common to have a light, fruity floral mix which smells generic. But here, the focus has been on the balance between the delicate white florals, and a beautiful citrus undertone (mainly from grapefruit). You have notes like Gardenia and sweet pea and and a delicate lightness with just a touch of creaminess beneath, but never overpowering.

One thing I like about this fragrance is that at no point does this descend into powdery floral territory. In fact it keeps this delicate floral citrus balance throughout (which in my opinion is very hard to do). Again it shows the work of a master perfumer in my view.

With regards to performance and longevity, this Eau de Parfum projects on my skin for the first 4-5 hours, with a further presence of about 2 hours after that. I feel that it does perform like an Eau de Toilette and I do with it would last longer. I can see this working very well in spring and summer, and great for wedding parties etc.

Really recommend this one as it stands out from the crowd of generic summer florals, and shows itself as something more delicate and beautiful. Really wonderful!

Terre with flowers?
I made a comment after reading Gold's review below that Jour is like Terre, but with flowers. To a certain extent, this is true ... but I have, again, had the same experience that I had with Terre. Jour has grown on me!

I was given a bag of samples some time ago, containing 5 or 6 of Jour, so I've been spraying every now and then, out of morbid curiosity I guess. This morning, I had that 'a-ha' moment ... and realised that while Jour is not groundbreaking in any way, M. Ellena's art definitely comes from an intensely cerebral place.
Jour d'Hermes is not a 'smell it and buy it' fragrance (at least for me), as so many offerings these days are designed to be. No padded top notes here ... just bright, crystalline citruses that have the exquisite sense to hang around for a while, before they segue into what I like to call a 'hush' of florals. Not overly sweet, I am still trying to figure out which part of the 'jour' this fragrance relates to ... but I'm pretty sure that it's before noon.
There is a dewiness here ... and a green-ness that feels like an open field spotted with nodding daisys and wild lillies. On this side of the fence is a gardenia bush glistening with dew, while the sweet peas in the formal border turn their faces to the sunshine.
The only negative for me here is the laundry Musk in the dry down ... yes, it provides a certain cleanliness to the composition ... but is really not something I enjoy on my skin.

So then ... lesson learned! Spend some time with the creations of this legendary perfumer (as one should!). Jour d'Hermes is thought provoking and will finally paint the image that it intends ... even if one doesn't feel the need to purchase it.

Monsieur Elléna's new quotations from his own creations
Lovely bottle, a playful and witty opening: It would be unfair of me not to recognize the good taste displayed by HERMES with this new scent in their line-up. JOUR comes along just in time to cater for the discerning perfume lover's penchant for reduced, but sparkling creations. The first whiff is brilliant, light, fresh - and you realize it couldn't be anything else but an HERMES - fragrance. Its formulation, in true J.C.Elléna-style, is modern, yet not in the least adventurous, i.e. innovative. It uses the same notes we encounter in "Un jardin sur le toit" and the same spices as in "Un jardin apres la mousson". There's a tangy green note as a counterpoint to the opening rush of apples and pears, mimosa leaves and fresh rose petals. The effect is exhilarating and a bit teasing, playful and witty - but I think Elléna harks back to his own history as a perfumer here. In his recent book I read that he feels sorry about the fact that "Un jardin apres la mousson" was a total commercial flop. "Jour" won't flop, it's less heavy on the spices, well-behaved, doesn't scream, it exudes a light-hearted nonchalence that centres the attention on you, not on the scent. It's an eclectic mix of other Elléna-scents and feels like a repetition. No surprises hidden anywhere, it simply has the clout of the Hermes name and its inherent sense of good taste, but it lacks something I'd call an "original formula". "Jour" has a curious calming effect on me, it feels like meeting a good old friend. But then again, don't the English say that familiarity breeds contempt?

It's a quite pleasant citrusy-flowery scent, fresh and and perfect by day. But the lemon notes remind me to a soap for dishes!+1
