Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil

21 Feb

On application, this fragrance forms a slightly salty halo of scent around me. In this fragrant haze of raw fruit, I can conjure an image of dried dates, and fibrous fruit pits, with an almost undetectable breeze.

As the scent develops, the breeze flips over the leaves so their undersides are exposed, revealing paler shades of green, as well as mangoes in various stages of ripening. My feet are planted in dusty earth, and the spell of the Sun is overwhelming. The earth and the Sun are both golden and this slight breeze causes the mango trees to emanate a glorious mellow aroma.

Over time, the wisps of hair in front of my eyes go unmoved, and everything seems to slow down as I stare unblinking out onto a surreal landscape.
/
This is the scent of actively trying to preserve a sublime memory. It’s a mantra.

It’s the sensation of not being responsible for anything except appreciating the present moment. When it settles down into a skin scent, I smell gently ripened as if I have been out in the Sun all day.

Un Jardin Sur Le Nil is a portable, authentically personal space. And when I mean space, I mean A LOT of space. Ideal for transcending the mental confines of New York.
