Un Jardin Mediterranee 


Juniper mixes with citrus and jumps about (Hermès 2003). It’s a brew of thorny cypress and woody fig leaf.  Even worn in the true chill of a November day in Minnesota there’s a supple, young and lush beauty – almost as if a honeyed floral sweetness (orange blossom) plays with the scattered fall leaves  and brings buoyant delight with a promise of warm light.  Into the drydown there’s subtle spice, and an cerulean charm…   I like this one.  
Top notes: bergamot, lemon and mandarin orange.   Middle notes: orange blossom and white nerium oleander.  Base notes: juniper, red cedar, musk, pistachio, fig leaf and cypress.
