Le Jardin de Monsieur Li by Hermès is a unisex 'Eau de Toilette' belonging to the Citrus Aromatic family. It is a perfume inspired by China, its gardens, its scents, its culture and its customs. A fresh and comforting essence that helps us to meditate and escape from the hustle and bustle, and immerses us in a pleasant Zen state.
This fragrance was launched in 2015 by the master Jean-Claude Ellena. Its creation was not a matter of two days, but rather it is a long process with several years behind it. To achieve perfection, the perfumer travelled several times to the Eastern country, which has so often served as a source of inspiration. With Le Jardin de Monsieur Li, the Maison Hermés wants us to feel the water flowing over the stones in the gardens, to perceive the scent of its vegetation and to breathe the air that is concentrated there.
Its olfactory pyramid begins with kumquat, an oriental and exotic aroma that recreates a small earthly paradise. The softness of jasmine can then be perceived on the heart, a note that regulates and balances freshness and makes it a totally comforting aromatic sensation. Finally, the icy mint is in charge of finishing this incredible experience.
LI XIN. This Chinese artist was Ellena's traveling companion in her many escapes to the eastern city. With him, I walk in search of inspiration and emotions to convey, and decided to honor his emotional fidelity by giving his name to the creation. One of the artist's watercolours has been chosen to wrap the outer packaging of this fragrance.
SERENITY. This perfume is a way of escape to an ethereal place, where calm reigns and our mind can roam freely, free from responsibilities and worries. A kingdom in which everything flows and nothing has repercussions.
A SOLITARY PERFUME. Le Jardin de Monsieur Li is an essence to enjoy alone, to get to know each other better, to maintain a dialogue with our interior or simply to enjoy our unique and pleasant company.
