Hermès Un Jardin Sur Le Nil + Terre D'Hermès Sampler

Hermès fragrance are considered more pricey than the rest of the fragrances offered by other brands. In a way, I feel Hermès scents are more intriguing and different than what I have used from other brands, so that justifies the higher price for me. Among all the selections of Hermès, The Hermès Garden-Perfumes collection is my favourite, offering a hint of nature and the tropics with scents that blends and changes from person to person. So what better time to buy these unique fragrances than during a 15% discount promotion. DBS credit cards and Takashimaya offered just that and hence, my time is due to smell like Hermès:-P

Among the 3 choices from the Garden-Perfumes collection, I have selected Un Jardin Sur Le Nil, which pays tribute to River Nile, a symbol of renewal and fertility. The fragrance derived notes from green mango, lotus flowers and aromatic rushes mingle with incense and sycamore wood. The scent reminds me of an after tropical rain shower, where there is a moment of serenity and nature's smell linger in the air. It makes me feel in touch with nature. The scent also morphs with our body heat as time passes, which fascinates me. This will be ideal when you indulge in some tropical resort pampering, amidst a post rain shower afternoon.

After I paid for my fragrance, I was delighted to find the sales promoter included a bottle of Terre D'Hermès sampler for me. A sampler which is surprisingly generous in size, a 12.5ml bliss of sensory pleasure again.

I am now a fan of Hermès scents. It's hard to go back to other scents once you try these:-)

Retail price: SGD $133. Where to buy: Hermès

Argh.... Terre d'Hermès give me headache, and Un Jardin sur le Nil give me nausea. Really not for me.

I feel that terre d'hermes is too bitter for my taste.

Terre D'Hermes is more masculine in scent. This is very tropics nature. I love it. Great to bring along for Bali villa holidays.:-P

Good choice. I have not gone back since using Hermes signature scents. Try Mediterranee too.
