Hermès Un Jardin sur la Lagune Eau de Toilette

Hermès imagines the scent of a garden on a lagoon

While some essences evoke the image of a person, others are inspired by a remote memory, a particular event or a comforting place. Perfumers all have their own little methods to stimulate creativity and Hermès is no slouch in this area. Since 2003, the brand has invited us to sumptuous gardens, through a fragrant collection that continues to grow . In this year 2019, this assortment is still growing. This time, Hermès takes us to Un Jardin Sur la Lagune.

Un Jardin Sur la Lagune, a solar and maritime fragrance

Unlike the previous perfumes in the Jardins d’Hermès collection, Un Jardin Sur la Lagune does not have a very clear geographical origin. After all, do we really know which lagoon it is? Is it one of the most beautiful lagoons in Venice? Unless Hermès decided to take us to Australia, to the famous Glenrock gap? No one really knows! The only indisputable information: Un Jardin Sur la Lagune d’Hermès is a soothing fragrance, which takes us not far from a sea current. Indeed, the lagoon systematically designates an expanse of shallow water, separated from the sea by a fine shoreline. The lagoon is present in many different places and changes its face season after season.

Much appreciated for the warmth of its water, the lagoon calls for appeasement. For the moment, the ingredients contained in Un Jardin Sur la Lagune have not been revealed by the brand. This perfume, designed by Christine Nagel, nevertheless promises to be relaxing at will. Presented in a bottle with a sweet and orange base, Un Jardin Sur la Lagune was photographed in the shade of a tree, on a beautiful summer day. This scent is as comforting as a nap at the foot of a lime tree on a beautiful summer day, the sleep of which is further embellished by the distant sound of sea spray. Much more than a simple perfume, Un Jardin Sur la Lagune d’Hermès is a moment of relaxation to offer you every day.

Previous essences from the Jardins d’Hermès collection

Year after year, the Jardins d’Hermès collection has never ceased to take us to different places. Each of the juices in this assortment is a call to stroll, leaving a large place in its recipe for the vegetable part. Like all the fragrances in the Jardins d’Hermès collection, Un Jardin Sur la Lagune is aimed at both men and women. These essences have the gift of transporting us to a world in its own right where time is no longer important and where the intoxication of the senses predominates. In the same vein, Mr. Li’s Garden came directly from China. The After the Monsoon Garden was designed as nature regaining its rights after an intense rain. The Garden on the Nile, meanwhile, plunged us into the heart of lush Egypt. The Jardins d’Hermès collection does not

A Garden on the Lagoon : Hermès offers us a maritime nap in the shade of a tree

In this year 2019, Hermès has decided to enrich one of its most famous collections: that of the Hermès gardens. Indeed, the brand has made a habit of taking us to vegetal territories, always inspired by lush nature and typical of a region of the globe. From Réunion via Venezuela, India or simply the region of Grasse, almost all the territorial areas of the planet are represented. This time, Hermès has placed the emphasis on relaxation and unwinding, as if to offer us a nap in the shade of a tree on a beautiful sunny day, while letting ourselves be carried away by the sound of the waves. Focus on the composition of A Garden on the Lagoon.

The suave and solar flowers of Un Jardin sur la Lagune

At the heart of this niche fragrance, flowers occupy a large place. Thus, A Garden on the Lagoon attaches capital importance to femininity. Yes, but not only… The flowers are used above all here to bring a more solar and radiant light to the Hermès recipe. Forgotten the traditional rose or the nobility of the iris, this time, the emphasis is on spring and Mediterranean freshness. Hermès intends to transport us with a simple breath in the heart of a beautiful sunny day and this goes above all through its enormous carnal and seductive bouquet. This revolves around three different plants: lily, magnolia and pittosporum. The choice of the lily is particularly surprising. Indeed, it is a mute flower whose extracts cannot be directly introduced into perfumes, but whose scent must be reproduced artificially by perfumers. We find here its peppery aspect associated with an undeniable elegance. The lily then becomes more vanilla and slightly lemony on contact with the magnolia. Famous in fine perfumery, its sweet essence is renowned for being one of the smoothest ingredients on the perfumer’s entire palette. Finally, pittosporum further reinforces the luminosity of the whole. From a typical plant from the South, it gives off an orange tree scent that smells of the Mediterranean.

A Garden on the Lagoon, a fresh and woody contrast

To complete this floral trio, Hermès has chosen to play on oppositions. If Un Jardin sur la Lagune is a particularly harmonious essence, it does not hesitate to combine opposing scents. Thus, the aquatic freshness of marine notes fades to the warmer depth of woody notes. Immediately, it’s a little as if the ocean was thrown on the ground, giving birth to an explosion of flavors. From then on, Un Jardin sur la Lagune gives off a breath of driftwood, warm and round, while being refreshed with water, and by conveying a certain salinity, as if plucked directly from the waves.

This niche fragrance is the work of the talented Christine Nagel, the exclusive nose of the Hermès house.
