The Gemini and the Taurus
Too many years have passed since my last visit to the eponymous city to draw any comparisons. However, I could tell without a doubt that to me, this is a quieter, more rounded Jacomo Silences Purple, which allegedly resembles Dior Addict (pre-reformulation).
Un Jardin à Paris begins in the same vein as Boucheron's Place Vendôme Eau de Toilette, with a delicate blend of citrus and white flowers (perhaps this is not a coincidence after all?) While the square is filled with romantic rose-coloured bushes under a pale blue sky and eventually turns powder-sugary and musky, the garden, probably with lanterns lit at the creeping dawn, exudes an exotic, bright yellow scent of Ylang-Ylang and creamy sandalwood with just a hint of vanilla.
As stereotypical as this may be, I would say that - with reference to the Western zodiac signs - Place Vendôme EDT has, for me, the characteristics attributed to the 'Air' group (or Gemini, to be precise) with its effervescence, and Un Jardin, although much more toned down than Silences Purple, reminds of the 'Earth' group (mostly Taurus) with its somewhat weighty, 'down-to-earth' sensuality.

With this being said, the florals became a little bit too loud at some point, that I already saw headache signs blinking. Furthermore, not only its tenacity of half a day, but also the projection in the first 2-3 hours could challenge the nose with generous application, if one had relied on the innocently pale colour of the liquid. The scent seemed to develop better on warmer skin, as on my 'colder' wrist the emphasis was on artificial citrus notes with little depth. Overall, I clearly find Un Jardin an autumn to winter scent that may not quite live up to the expectations raised by its name and design - or perhaps it was just me who had associated the fragrance with fresh springtime flowers rather than an exotic summer night, without looking at the notes.
