Le Jardin de Monsieur Li eau de toilette evokes a Chinese garden poised between reality and imagination. A place for meditation, where strolling is allied with thought, and every step sets the imagination free. Perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena tells the story of a fragrance dotted with flowers, water, trees, and rocks.
Floral and vegetal, Le Jardin de Monsieur Li eau de toilette juxtaposes delicate sambac jasmine, tangy kumquat and explosive bergamot in a harmonious fusion.
Designed by Fred Rawyler, the emblematic “lantern bottle” is inspired by the lanterns of horse-drawn carriages. Its glass is in a delicate yellow gradient, a nod to the traditional Chinese imperial color. Painted by artist Li Xin, a river of ink in a thousand shades of anthracite decorates the box.
THE PARFUMS-JARDINS COLLECTION
Through the Parfums-Jardins collection, Hermès nurtures its creativity every year bringing together the soul and feelings of a place, the perfumer's inspiration and the chosen theme of the year. There are olfactory strolls to share for every moment, to indulge every desire for freshness, reverie or escape.
"I remembered the smell of ponds, the smell of jasmine, the smell of wet stones, of plum trees, kumquats and giant bamboos. It was all there, and in the ponds there were even carp steadily working towards their hundredth birthdays." Jean-Claude Ellena
