Hermes – Un Jardin sur le Nil

Perfume: Un Jardin sur le Nil
House: Hermes
Perfumer: Jean Claude Ellena
Source: The Perfume Court
Size: 1 mL EdT

OsMoz Notes:
Top note : Green Mango, Grapefruit
Middle note : Calamus, Lotus
Base note : Sycamore, Frankincense

Date: 2/24/08 Weather: 35 degrees, clear

Comments: Starts with citrus top. Strong on the grapefruit (though this may be a result of the hand soap I just used). 10 minutes in, more watery floral (the lotus?). 20 minutes in, begins to pick up a sweet woody note. A bit pineish. Still smell some of the grapefruit and watery florals. After an hour – smells about the same, a bit of pine, some grapefruit, some watery florals. Grapefruit generally doesn’t agree with me as a not – but this one is nice. I can see this performing much better in the summer. Showered 2.5 hours later. Mostly gone by then.
