Hermes launches the new fourth fragrance from the collection of garden-inspired fragrances Un Jardin, named Un Jardin Sur Le Toit or “A Garden on the Roof” in 2011. Un Jardin Sur Le Toit refers to the especially luxurious garden located on the Hermes’ headquarters building roof at 24 Rue Faubourg Saint-Honore in Paris.
A lot of reviewers complain that there is no depth to this scent and is deemed not as outstanding as the others in this collection. I like to think otherwise.
I think this is a coming home scent for Ellena. After his quest to Egypt, India and the med, where he created magic and captured the scents and moods of the landscapes to perfection, he came home and created a carefree scent he could relate to. Use the flora and fauna he grew up with. Nostalgia at its best. So he chose the rooftop garden of the Paris Hermes boutique as his inspiration and composed this clean uncomplicated fragrance.A simple finale to his exotic travels.
