Unobtrusive and one of my absolute favorite scents!
Hermès Un Jardin en Méditerranée Winding down a coastal cobbled street, taking in the sea air brimming with freshness and salinity. A cool breeze lightly lapping across dampened skin, wafting the scent of wood and leaves mingling with jammy and dry powdery fig leaves and fruit. It is not completely sweet, nor dry. Rather, it is somewhere in-between. It’s really a lovely and refreshing, soft watery fragrance. There’s something softly sensual and alluring. The powdery fig is grounded and has a dusty or dusky quality. It is not at all like talcum or baby powder. For the most part, it stays close to the skin and lasts around five hours or so. Every so often, someone else will catch a lilting flick and comment, “You smell good.” I do understand some other reviews mentioning a syrupy note. While it does not pull syrupy on me, I see how it can pull that way on some. For me, it’s unobtrusive and one of my absolute favorite scents. Thank you, Surrender to Chance and other fragrance sampling sites. It’s so nice being able to try before committing to full bottles.
