Red Apple Garden
The first 2 hours of Un Jardin sur le Toit is really pleasant. After the initial green opening, a red apple scent emerges out. Such a fresh, sweet and juicy scent that conjures the joy of life and nature. There is also some pear and green grass complimenting the charming apple. This phase is no doubt fruity, but absolutely not those syrupy candied ones, but a sincere and natural fruity scent.

However, once dried down, Un Jardin sur le Toit loses its vivacity and becomes a green and bitter skin scent which reminds me of the first two Jardins, as if the party comes to the end right after it had just started. It's not bad but it could have been more interesting.

The sillage is close and the longevity is around 4 to 5 hours. Although the apple in Un Jardin sur le Toit enchanted me, this remains my least favourite among the whole Jardin series.

Garden stalking thanks to Google Maps
Needed something for the soul today and found me in Heidelberg. There was a huge drugstore nearby. There I bought Un Jardin sur Le Toit against the advice of a young saleswoman who wanted to talk me into "Twilly". Because of the seller I had no more space on my arms and could only test the scent on paper. It's all good, though.

Un Jardin sur Le Toit has often been described here. At first it smells very strongly of apples and pears, then floral notes come to the fore. Besides, long grass is involved. With my eyes closed, I am now standing on the roof terrace of the Hermès building in 24 Faubourg Saint Honoré, after trying out the scent at home. Breathe a sigh of relief and sit under fruit trees in a garden chair.

I've been near the house several times. Can't remember ever standing in front of it, maybe I passed by. Garden stalking is very easy thanks to Google Maps especially in France. In France, the Google car was allowed to drive around everywhere. You can put the Google male in distant Germany on the street in front of the building and look up. But you can't see the garden from below. In the satellite view you can zoom in very close and yes, on the roof there are really trees. How they did it is a mystery to me. The garden occupies about 2/3 of the roof area. Probably you can still hear the city up there and it certainly has a nice view, especially at night. This perfume keeps what it promises and I always think it's good.

I think the bottle is pretty, but I really like the box. On it you can see a drawing of the house. Everything is black and white, only the garden is colorful. The black and white drawing is drawn around the whole carton. On the back of the box you can see exactly where the garden is. A kind of guide to garden stalking.

The projection is not very strong and the durability goes like this. I would wear this fragrance in the evening, when going out, daily, in my free time and at work, but not for sport, because it is known to be murder.

I can imagine it in women and men of all ages, but more in women. Tester M didn't want it on himself, but found it on me even better than "Le Jardin de Monsieur Li", which was our previous garden favourite. I also think Un Jardin sur Le Toit is even better and I can't see any particular similarity between the two perfumes. Also not to "Un Jardin sur le Nil", which especially Tester M doesn't like because it smells too one-dimensional of mango (he says). Well, it's a good thing it's an Ellena, maybe you can tell. As with paintings, when you recognize the technique, even if the paintings have different motifs.

Verdent fruity
If this is a perfume devoted to the garden Éllena established on roof top of Hermès boutique in Faubourg, I guess there must be apricot and peach as well as apple and lots of lawn on there.

The fragrance opens with sharp hinge of freshly cropped apricot, sweet and delicious and juicy. There is a play of soft lactonic accords within green lawn and mouthwatering apple. Floral side (I get rose but don't get magnolia, I get lotus) brings soft romantic aura to joyous fruity green performance. The lawn accord intensifies and the notes spin around it. Casual, summery, love making, happy fragrance for when there's not war in the world!

Musky freshness
Jardin sur le Toit opens with a really pleasant, albeit quite “generic” accord of greenish-fruity notes well supported by rose, and bright musk on the base (I don’t get much else, sorry). The “ambiance” is delicate and graceful, but not light, actually quite bold and greyish on the contrary – mostly due to rose and musky notes, which provide some “thickness” to the blend. Not as fresh as other Jardin’s fragrances, but since the concept here is (I guess?) a sort of “urban garden on the roof”, then I get the feel of something heavier, dense, more “grey” and somehow cloudy which makes Jardin sur le Toit a bit darker than the rest of the line. Overall though I wouldn’t say this is something remarkable: it smells a bit plastic as regards of quality, and quite uninspired overall. It soon becomes an endless, plain rose-musky galore which honestly gets boring soon. It’s light, but smells a bit suffocating nonetheless. I won’t say it’s totally bad, it’s classy, light and clean, but just without anything making it stand out from the “classy, light, clean scents” crowd. And that – standing out of the crowd - is something Ellena would be easily able to accomplish, hence my disappointment with this... it feels like the skills are there, but the “brief” wasn’t probably the most stimulating around.

I currently see Un Jardin Sur Le Toit as a continuation of the rose theme which Ellena started to develop in Rose Ikebana and continued at Kelly Calleche and its variations. Here, he seems to put more emphasis on grassy and fruity notes, giving a very savory opening which is balanced by the green nuances. After some moments, the rose start to show up on skin, more green than floral and with something that makes me think of tea. There seems to be a discreet leathery nuance at the drydown and a generous use of iso e super, which gives it a luminous and velvety finish. For some reasons, i remember this fragrance as very light for the first times i wore it, but today i seems to notice all day and i find it a very pleasant variation on the ideas worked on the previously mentioned fragrances

Like sitting in a lush, verdant spring garden...
Hermès Un Jardin sur le Toit is, like many of Jean-Claude Ellena's compositions, very natural, authentic, and transparent smelling. If this is how the garden on the roof of the Hermès Paris boutique at 24, Rue Fauborg smells like, it's a garden I want to be in all the time!

The fragrance opens up with a wonderful burst of fruits (mostly ripe pear and apple), followed by beautiful notes of rose and magnolia, which gives it a sweetness and a wonderful floral quality, lifting up the entire composition and making it light and airy. It smells fresh, like a garden in spring or early summer. It's also very "green" smelling, and this comes from the grass and herbs in the background. I think what I love most is the very authentic rose note, which Jean-Claude Ellena does so well in many of his fragrances.

I would class this as a solid unisex, and although it could be worn by a man or a woman, I think this will be more comfortable on a lady, as the floral-fruity notes are usually associated with most female-marketed fragrances. Having said that, this is the work of a master perfumer, it smells nothing like cheap shampoo and body spray. It does smell authentic and natural. I would recommend it for the summer and spring months. It is a fragrance that gives me joy to smell and experience, like sitting in your very own garden in France. A truly wonderful experience!

Sur un joli toit, dans un beau jardin...
"Sur le toit" is slightly similar to "Un Jardin sur le Nil", but softer and more "rounded".
I perceive it as a gorgeous, greenish summer scent with a pale rose and some apple and magnolia interwoven into its structure. Take a walk on the pavement in front of the famous 24, Faubourg in Paris in summer and imagine the joy it would give you to climb the stairs inside of the Hermes House and reach the quiet city garden overlooking Paris... the scent which would greet you upstairs would be calm and well-balanced - just like the one created by Ellena for this edition.
I have worn "Sur le Nil" before, but I feel more comfortable and relaxed with "Sur le toit", because it is softer and a touch "warmer".

Clean, green and fresh opening; a bit of sweetness from fruit but also slightly feminine with prominent floral notes.+2
