To me, the best cherry pipe tobacco I've smelled in a fragrance. Much more natural than Bogart PH, which I think is great, and more of the sweet tobacco but less of the heavy, synthetic cherry. The vanilla really comes through in the drydown. Really well done. Projection and longevity both above average. I'd say good for date night and should be noticed by others, so might get some compliments.
Not much tobacco here folks, this is cherry flavoured milk from beginning to end. A tacky designer fragrance in niche clothing.
The website of this house is quite amusing, provides a whacky history of horse breeds that relate to the name of each fragrance, but not much about who they are and why someone should place any value in their products.
This is an awesome niche, my wife loves it and she's not into fragrance . you can't go wrong I give this a huge thumbs up. well done formula.
I think they have literally put some cough Syrup into this heavy bottle. In the opening all i can smell is this cough syrup.
In comparison to spice-bomb this thing smells of very high quality, where as spice-bomb smells really cheap, alcoholic, synthetic IMO.
The heart reminds me off Kalemat & the dry down is almost similar to YSL la nuit de l'homme.
The house of Parfums de marly is just copying the popular fragrances like Tobacco vanille for Herod, Le male for Pegasus, Tuscan leather for Godolphin.
I am not impressed.

I've read deadidol's review and have to agree with the most part, it is a sweet fragrance, i love spice bomb ( for winter/christmas nights) herod is, for me a night fragrance, i dont get cinnamon or cherry, but its a CLASSY perfume, it really puts the likes of spice bomb in its place, it is sophisticated, no doubts, when i first bought herod i was disappointed, i was expecting the cinnamon hit like spice bomb, but let it dry down and start to mellow and then it really shows its class and longevity, it is so mellow and keeps on going with all the base notes and vanilla hint coming at you again and again. Its a def. blind buy if you want to change it up for all you spice bomb fans.
