Me and aquatic fragrances: here's an exceptional talent
You can't go wrong with this scent.
I hope.
He is for me genuinely like a trench coat: functional, inconspicuous and not always suitable, but mostly.
I associate it with a garden.
Not in the actual sense, but my imagination of a garden here is very striking and yet Gentle : Green freshness, no heat, chaos, dreamy atmosphere and hidden.
Pepper gives spice, but not in the exotic sense, the scent remains fluid.
Lime gives moisture, but not in a lovely sense. Ginger seems artificial, but pleasant. Decent twist.
The fragrance touches me.
Very much imagination is in it.
Nevertheless, it is not warm.
An enchanted and hidden garden.
I suppose it's easy to overlook, I've only seen it once.
To me it just expresses that faith must have a place alongside all knowledge. That sounds very strange.
Maybe it's a classic among the aquatic-like smells I mostly can't deal with.
And finally, a fun fact:

Lewis Carroll was a math professor and wrote a children's book.
There is a sequel to Alice in Wonderland: Alice in Mirrorland.
A dreamlike book that will stay with me for a long time.
Maybe forever.

Breeze over Bora Bora
Night falls over Bora Bora, the last rays of the sun hit my skin. A gentle breeze blows down from Mont Otemanu over the dense forests and brings a smell of woods. The bouquet of spices and the freshness of citrus fruits are added to this. With time, the night becomes darker and the scent less citrusy, as the spices come out more strongly. I am possessed by a wonderful lightness and a feeling of happiness. It's one of those perfect moments that you can't really describe, but that you remember for a lifetime... every time you perceive Un Jardin après la Mousson.

the chick and her gardens
Those who have read reviews of mine know that I am a fan of Hermes and its gardens. All of them are special and have a typical Hermes DNA.
Un Jardin sur la Lagune is my absolute favorite among the gardens. But Un Jardin après la Mousson is also fantastic.

If I close my eyes while spraying on, a film immediately runs in my mind's eye....

Summer, early in the morning, I put on a dressing gown. The birds are chirping their good morning song, it still smells like freshly cut grass, the dew is on everything, the sun is just flashing over the hills.
I sit in the garden with a carafe of ginger-lemon herbal water, enjoying the morning freshness in anticipation of a hot day....

The scent manages very well to conjure up an image in the mind and evoke feelings. There is nothing I appreciate more.

Refreshingly tangy and slightly spicy. The nuances are neatly balanced.
First I smell the grass and vetiver what comes along with strong, citrusy impacts. The slight sharpness and spiciness is never intrusive.
I was worried at first that the coriander could bother me. That is not so.

H+S is unfortunately not quite as long as I would like. But still he belongs to my summer favorites, along with the other gardens of Hermes *.*

Ellena's wet, earthy spicefield
The ginger and pepper really pop out to my nose, at least during the first 30 minutes. I also get a moist, wet, rainy vibe. This scent really gives me a great visual image of what Ellena had in mind when creating this. I've had the same experience with Un Jardin Sur Le Toit. Ellena is a wonderful man! It's almost as if I'm walking through the spicefields in India after a heavy rain.

This is very spicy but in a fresh way, though I don't find this an everyday scent at all. It's very earthy and wet. I find it to be quite sharp. It's strange how things change as I liked it the first time I tried it, but shortly after that it made me nauseous when I smelled it. I've heard people talk about a melon vibe which I understand, perhaps that's what turned me off from this.

Well...
By far the most peculiar among the Jardin’s series, but in my opinion, only partially in a positive meaning. The main “pro” is that this smells undoubtedly way more creative than the others, it’s a really intriguing concept which actually succeeds in recreating the feel of a bracing garden just after a rain storm. Wet woods, wet grass... and – here’s the “con” – a couple of totally unrelated notes which make me wonder what “jardin” has just rained on, precisely. Basically the core accord of this Mousson smells to me as a surreal edible nightmare made with melon ice cream, cucumber and mushrooms. Not joking: it’s precisely and literally what I smell here. I haven’t a clue of what this may be due to, I guess part of this comes from ginger; but besides a nice musky-camphorous sort of “warm” spicy accord, a subtle citrus top note and a vetiver base note, I get that. Melon ice cream, cucumber and porcini mushrooms. Which as you may guess, it’s something none would want to smell of (I hope). The drydown goes a bit better, a bit woodier and drier, but still that’s the smell. So I get the aquatic rendition is really peculiar here, with a sort of spicy-mineral-camphorous-fruity twist, and I get this is by far the most unique and creative among this line, but for me it’s just this close to a nonsense scrubber. Mild thumbs up just because I admit it’s a matter of personal taste and I acknowledge the quality of ingredients and the creativity involved.

I was on fence with the rating. Very grassy, vetivery scent. On the other hand, very distinct melon notes. Wet, earthy, fruity-fresh.
