Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil review

I have been on the hunt for some great fresh, summer time fragrances. After finding out that I prefer my scents to be more green rather than floral or fruity, I started looking and one thing I came across is Hèrmes’ Un Jardin Sur Le Nil Eau de Toilette.

Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil is a unisex fragrance that isn’t new at all that is described as fruity and floral but to me it also has some fresh earthy tones that make this perfect for hot summer days.

Fragrance review: Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil Eau de Toilette

This being an Hèrmes product you could probably guess this wouldn’t be cheap. Currently this 50 ML bottle retails for €91 but I tend to buy fragrance mainly on a deal and with giftcards. So when I bought this I ended up not paying that much at all. I think I got his at half price.

What does this perfume have to offer?

According to Fragrantica these are the fragrance notes:

  • Top notes: grapefruit, green mango, tomato and carrot
  • Middle notes: lotus, bulrush, orange, hiacynth and peony
  • Base notes: musk, iris, incense, labdanum and cinnamon

These aren’t the usual notes I would fall for at a first glance, but when I smelled this I figured it would be divine. When I spray this on I don’t get anything too sweet at all, but a more green scent with a soft, rounded floral note. As it wears, it certainly warms up and that earthiness comes through more and more.

This isn’t the most longwearing fragrance on me, but that’s why I like it. In the summer time, I can feel quite heady when I wear fragrance, so I prefer something that’s lighter in its tones. This delivers just that.

Should you buy Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil?

I think this is a lovely fragrance for me, but I don’t think it will be for everyone. It definitely doesn’t go with what is the norm in fragrance land and since this is stuck on a topshelf it certainly doesn’t get as much attention.

However, if you are looking for something that is fresh and green but without some of that sharpness, then this may be for you. To me this smells soft and pleasant without it being overly sweet or overpowering.

It is fresh without being zesty. It is sweet without being sickly. It is floral without being too pungent. It is warm without being too cozy. In short, it has everything I love in a fragrance and I feel it has a perfect blend that can suit many people.
