It's 'Jardin en Méditerranée' with lemon verbena

This fragrance is basically Un Jardin en Méditerranée by Hermès, with a lot of lemon verbena in the beginning. For about 1,5 hours I get the super fresh and strong lemon verbena. Nice. Then I get the Méditerranée scent, until it's 4,5 hours on my skin. After that it evolves into more of a green musky scent. To me it smells like a Méditerranée-ish musk. In that phase it seems to have less sillage than its Hermès brother. It's also similar to Hedera by L'Erbolario. As a comparison I would summarize those three scents as follows:
- Méditerranée: best performance and also a pinch of pistachio
- Green x 4: might be for you if you love lemon verbena
- Hedera: leans more towards nice synthetic melon, and maybe some ivy
Green x 4 gets a 70% score from me.
