Terre D’Hermes comes in a very nice and heavy bottle. The cap is innovative and twists down to reveal the sprayer. The quality of the bottle is perfectly inline with the juice that is found within. This is a very nice earthy fragrance with a well blended mix of citrus and woods. To me the opening is a bright fresh orange, which slowly includes a hint of grapefruit. Throughout the drydown you get the nice citrus and then the earthy notes join in. It is somewhat linear, yet awesome fragrance.
Terre D’Hermes also does well with projection and longevity. For me it really does well and lasts throughout the day. Even during the colder days where most fragrances fail, this one keeps on projecting. Now this isn’t in the same league as Pure Malt with projection but it does do well. In the warmer months you can get away with one, maybe two sprays. During the fall/winter I usually go with 3 to 4 sprays. That leads to what season this fits, and for me I think it can be worn year round. This is earthy enough to be good in the fall and even winter. Yet the citrus makes it a great fragrance for the spring and summer. I find this to be a very versatile scent.
To me this fragrance is rather mature, and lacks the real appeal for the younger women. I think this is best worn by the 25+ crowd, however if you’re younger and enjoy it I’d say wear it. I however doubt that you’re going to be getting that many compliments from women younger then mid 20′s.
If you fit into the 23+ crowd and looking for an extremely well made fragrance then this is a perfect buy.
