You can spend a whole day in this garden: listening to the singing of the ascending larks from the nearby fields already in the morning.
The sun already greeted the day, but the morning coolness is still above the landscape; the conifers, loosely distributed in the area, welcome the warm light and also me with a pleasant spice.
If you like cedars and cypresses and also their slightly resinous scent, you will feel right at home here.
It is an invitation to take a leisurely stroll through the morning, for a light breakfast outdoors.
The rising sun now reaches the small grove of citrus trees; the scents of invigorating lemon and warm, heart-warming orange and the famous bergamot unfold.
Also their dark lacquered foliage sends a fine fragrance into the already warmer air.
These nuances fit wonderfully to the resinous spice of the conifers.
This freshness is also very welcome in the course of the increasing day.
The cicadas begin in the midday sun with their not even quiet entertainment of their surroundings.
Their "cockroaches" can hardly be overheard; they provide the sound for the transition into the fragrant afternoon.
Well, already the Privy Councillor Goethe said: "Happy are the cicadas, for they have mute women!"
In the late afternoon the wish appears from time to time: "Oh, their men would be mute too!"
Under the power of the sun does not develop the aromatic scents of the flower bundles of white oleanders. What splendour are these in their large tubs that were placed almost arbitrarily in the garden.
Now the orange blossom is added; more delicate and finer than the oleander - a fragile, slightly waxy work of art.
With a fragrance that is not traded at the top of the aromatherapy list for no reason.
Together with Neroli the orange blossom flatters heart and soul: so here too!
The fingered foliage of the figs, which they also often represent in this Mediterranean garden, now mixes with the existing scent chord.
Not loud and exciting, but with a light green veil whose fragrance flatters the splendour of the flowers: together they sway gently in the afternoon breeze.
This is the moment to visit the Hollywood swing covered with thick cushions and look out for a first cocktail.
As the afternoon progresses, the spice of cypress and cedar increases again and now the juniper finally plays along in the concert of fragrance aromas!
The light evening insulation, in its velvety softness, brings a good measured dose of musk.
Together with the oily pistachio (a fine green scent that always seems a little creamy due to the oil content), the fragrance painting of the day is completed.
The citrically bright fresh green floats on spicy coniferous wood; summer blossoms exude generously many facets of their fragrant beauty until - punctually to the nightingale blow - a new batch of resinous spice, here bedded on soft musk, greets the velvety night in an atmospheric way.
"Un Jardin en Méditarranée" is an elegant fresh summer lady with that certain something!
It is a fragrance that accompanies you unexcitedly but stimulatingly throughout the day.
The interesting thing about this work of art is that it can have been created at any desired place in the Mediterranean. The scents are so cleverly combined that this garden is not only located in the south of France.
This fragrance symphony from Hermès can thus be a kind of "flying aroma carpet" to every individual desired point!
It invites us to "slow down" and linger.
It is definitely worth accepting this invitation
