About Terre d'Hermès

Terre d'Hermès – meaning 'Earth of Hermès' – was launched in March 2006. Perfumer, Jean-Claude Ellena was inspired in the creation of the fragrance by the works of author, Jean Giono.

The fragrance features notes of orange, gunflint, flint, vetiver and benzoin. The bottle was designed by Hermès designer, Philippe Mouquet, and features an 'H' cut into the base of the bottle.

The fragrance was joined by a Parfum version in 2009, and more recently Terre d'Hermès Eau Très Fraîche in 2014.

Hermès say:

The history of an alchemic journey through the elements: earth, air and water. A woody, vegetal and mineral eau de toilette

Reviews of Terre d'Hermès

This fragrance is only as good as the nose that takes it in. I couldn’t help but be drawn by the bitter temperament and guileless aspect, though I quickly repented investing in an endeavour that bore seemingly sour fruit. Every encounter with it led to disappointment and an unsavoury experience, and I wondered if I’d ever use up my bottle. I had to delve deeper into its character with help from an archetype, Guerlain’s Vétiver, before being able to more fully appreciate the suppleness of the vetiver note at its root. The honest beauty, as it turns out, was always there, calling out, even in the midst of cold winds blowing from cavernous despair. Unless the mind is attuned to it, the sweetness is wasted.

I notice there is a big hype and buzz built around this fragrance but to be honest, I don't get it. Too orangey for my liking.

Imagine a orange grove in Tuscany full of tilled earth and greenery. As you look up into the sky you notice a storm is gathering. The winds pick up and clouds roll in and the smell is a sweet, pungent zing in your nostrils. That's the sharp, fresh aroma of ozone.

You look around and take a deep breath and you can smell the orange citrus and peppery earth mixing in with the mineral like ozone. A storm is coming....

This is what I get from Terre d' hermes as it develops more complexity on the skin. It's very classy, sophisticated and lasts several hours on my skin.

Every time I wear this I just cannot help thinking of earthy orange grooves as a storm gathers. That tension in the air is captured beautifully in this scent.

Too heavy and earthy for me, not sure why this gets so many recommendations for summer. I live in the swamps of SE Texas and this is far too heavy for this area.

Dries down to a very earthy "B.O." type vetiver, definitely not for me. Maybe my chemistry just doesn't jive with this, I'll take the EDP any time over this mess.

Citrus juice - good, citrus juice! A bit sour. Citrus lingers a long time.

Metallic, stoney note - it must be the flint. I smell green bell pepper. Fresh, crushed leaves are next. A vague floral mixed in... Rose and patchouli merge; move in with the other, previously mentioned observations to create a smooth elixir. TDH reminds me of old-style cologne. Terra firma, indeed.

The base is greener. Dark green vetiver. Fresh cut cedarwood. Greenish, tree sap resin. This, is a good, solid masculine scent. Polite, unassuming. appropriate for business or casual wear.

This fragrance has a very strong citrus note that I can definitely see why women may enjoy. Personally, I did not enjoy it due to the tart presence that never seemed to simmer on the dry down and made my mouth water. It lasted for a good eight hours. I could see a man in his late 20s to mid 30s appreciating it. Overall I give it 4 out of stars.
