Retired perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena is said to have been inspired by Chinese gardens in the creation of Le Jardin de Monsieur Li. The citrusy fragrance was introduced to the market by Hermès in 2015. It was created for use by both men and women. Some of the accords it boasts of are jasmine, kumquat and mint.
Le Jardin de Monsieur Li by Hermès Review
Le Jardin de Monsieur Li is a pleasant fragrance that seems to have no need to scream. Instead, it aims to transport you to a refreshing, peaceful retreat to the brooks or the falls. The opening is zesty but without being assaulting to the nose, and it blends nicely with the jasmine. It has a wet and rich feeling, which is of course a welcome sensation to us. It would require some refreshing every now and then, but to be honest, we don’t really mind.
The zesty opening is warm and smooth rather than sharp
We find this to be pleasantly lush with a wet quality
Versatile enough to be used in many occasions and most seasons
Average staying power
Retreats as a skin scent after many hours
