Hermes Un Jardin en Mediterranee

21 Feb

The best fig so far. I tested Un Jardin en Mediterranee for two years before pulling the trigger on a FB, so I could take the time to really see what was happening within this fragrance. In that time I also sampled: JM’s Wild Fig and Cassis, L’Artisan’s Premier Figuier, Philosykos by Diptyque, and Fico Di Amalfi by Acqua Di Parma. This one trumps the rest in my opinion, because it is less of a fragrance than a mood. It is beautifully melancholy. It’s resting on a bench in early Spring when it’s just warm enough to relax outside so long as you stay in the Sun. Longevity is quite good as is its projection. It won’t stink out your entire office, but it creates a nice aura around the wearer, and lasts all day and into the evening (into the next day on clothing).

The fig, and the garden are present, but they aren’t in your face, they aren’t too green, too milky sweet, or too pungent. They are just being, and you’re invited to “just be ” along with them. The vibration of this fragrance is not excessively bright or active. It is sublimely restful, almost to the point of something like sadness, but not exactly. It is more like a base line for being. Sun and shadows and tomatos. (and figs).
