Hey, fragrant friends — here’s a link to an interesting review by Chandler Burr of Hermes Un Jardin Apres La Mousson and thanks Musette for emailing it to me. I am assuming that this will also appear in print in the NYT magazine supplement tomorrow, if I recall correctly how this all flows together, but maybe I don’t.
I am not always in agreement with Burr, but I thought he hit the nail on the head with this one and provided information that I (a rank if enthusiastic amateur) don’t have access to. I would describe the fragrance differently than Burr does; it’s clear I find it much more horrifying than he does — he’s merely baffled — I think I’m getting a lot more melon. Anyway, enjoy. The review, that is. My advice is to stay away from the fragrance itself. He gives it one star for “inoffensive” but yikes!
While I’m doing this post, here is what I think is a working link to the whole set of Scent Notes fragrance reviews, which (if you have ever gone looking as I have for one of these on their search engine) can be hard to find.
