'A perfumed expression of a Mediterranean memory, a mosaic of olfactory, visual and tactile sensations' Jean-Claude Ellena.
A novella that describes the spirit of a Mediterranean garden luxuriant with trees and flowers, and evokes a mosaic of smells pilfered from a private garden in Tunisia.

Un Jardin Sur La Lagune, a dream garden, soothing and vibrant. A floral and woody Eau de Toilette. 'I dreamed of this garden, I created a perfume woven from its memories, the cycle of trees and flowers, nature still enduring within it' Christine Nagel, Hermes Perfumer. A half open door, a dream escapes. Un Jardin Sur La Lagune is a secret garden where nature comes into its own again. Woody scents blend with floral notes. The wind carries afar salty notes.
'A new idea of freshness that is rather unusual: green and vegetal scents, the smell of water and sand' Jean-Claude Ellena.
Un Jardin Sur Le Nil is an impressionistic stroll through the island-gardens on the Nile at Aswan, the starting points for a new olfactory adventure. Green mangi, lotus, calamus and sycamore wood all lie at the heart of this refreshing ode.
