un jardin

Mother's day came a wee early.  
My dear husband returned from visiting his parents and brought me a lovely bottle of HERMES "un Jardin en Mediterranee." I especially like that we can share it as it was intended for both guys and gals as it has a woody green fruity scent. 

I saved the box for the lovely artwork which I found inspiring.  Funny, I never thought of cacti in my garden, but they are all over the place in the South of France.

What is your favorite fragrance from "un jardin?"

I like that you both can share the bottle. :) since my incident I can't wear too much cologne. Through it all my sense of smell and eye sight improved. I too love the packaging. xo

What a lovely surprise! I'm sure it smells as pretty as it looks. The scent of lilacs floating in the air right now is something that I would love to bottle up and put on my vanity.
Happy early Mother's Day to you, Patricia! XO
