Hermes Un Jardin sur le Nil Review

Today I share with you my journey through the Hermes gardens. More specifically “Un Jardin Sur le Nil”. I have always admired this range of fragrances, so let's get to know this one a little better:

The Story

Les Jardins is a collection of perfumes, each telling the story of a genuine encounter between Hermès, the soul of a place and the perfumer-composer. Mostly composed of Fresh, Delicate scents they all have their unique touch. Inviting you to travel to different places in the world.

Sur le Nil
Hermes Un Jardin sur le Nil Review

Imagine yourself taking a stroll through the island gardens on the Nile at Aswan. As you explore the lush green garden you experience a universe of scents. From mango, lotus, and calamus to a sycamore tree. This is the heart of this refreshing ode.

The perfume is dressed in its tall green stained bottle and gives off very simple, minimalistic vibes. The box itself reflects the heart of the perfume, the lotus flower.

The Perfume

“Sur le Nil” was released in 2005. Originally a women's fragrance, men can also bathe in this fresh perfume. It is a fruity, aquatic fragrance that gives off summer party vibes. If you are looking for a subtle perfume then this is the right choice! A little more intimate than some of the other fragrances.

The Notes

Perfume is also an expression of our emotions. Depending on the day your desires may change. Hermes decided to kick this scent off with a fruity punch. The top notes are Grapefruit, green mango, tomato and carrot.

These notes had me straight away imagining a vegetable patch in a shadowed garden. There is nothing better than a down-to-root smell of growing vegetables. Bold colours and flavours course through my mind.

Continuing our route we come across the heart notes: Lotus, bulrush, orange and peony. Stepping closer to the water's edge we get citrus and aquatic note. When I say aquatic, I can't help but think of cucumber, and green notes.

Last but not least we come across an earthy note, the base notes: musk, iris, incense & cinnamon. This gives a strong powdered finish to the perfume. Making it smooth and delicate. Did you know that musk is mostly used in perfumes to prolong the durability of the scent?

My Experience

I love to have options when it comes to perfume, so using this unique boost of summer was a true pleasure. In this scent, I enjoyed the different scents of a sweet, green, garden but do not recommend this if you are looking for a noticeable perfume.

I didn't expect a long-lasting scent with Hermes Un Jardin sur le Nil being an EDT. But somehow this perfume becomes one with the skin. Evolving into a gentle fragrance on the skin it is a perfect perfume for a more discreet person or on a hot summer's day.

  • Great summer perfume
  • Unique scent
  • Continuous evolution
  • Easy to wear, no matter the occasion.
