The story behind
“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
Le Jardin de Monsieur Li describes 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.
Olfactory strolls through the different annual themes of the house, the Les Jardins fragrances attest to genuine encounters between the Hermès spirit, the soul of a place and the perfumer-composer.
