Hermès – Un Jardin Sur Le Nil

Now that the temperatures are rising, perfume holds an even more important role in our daily routines. Heavier, thicker scents should be replaced with something light and refreshing such as my latest scent obsession eau de toilette Un Jardin Sur Le Nil by Hermès. One, two or ten clicks and I don’t seem to tire, the smell somehow intoxicates me with divine, exotic dreams of foreign travels to the likes of Egypt or Morocco as if out of an Agatha Christie Poirot episode from the 1989 tv-series with David Suchet.

In those dreams I find myself dressed in elegant beige linen garments, wearing a panama hat and fanning myself with a rare ostrich feather fan, or white peacock which will also do. The air is dry and warm, I’m lounging on a divan alternatively, out on an adventure with my beautiful pet camel snapping photographs of hidden ancient monuments or rummaging through a local market in search of treasures. Ah, the alluring power of scent!

    • Yes, isn’t it ridiculous, it was the shape and expression of the bottle that caught my attention when I went into the Hermès boutique and they urged me to try it on. (sounds like I’m the genie, right?).Luckily, the scent was fresh too so that’s a bonus.
