Review for Parfum (extrait) of Jour d'Hermes

I like Jour d'Hermes in its EDT expression which was effervescent, bright and full of spring flowers - but I found it somewhat leaning feminine because of the florals.

When I chance upon a great opportunity to purchase the Parfum (extrait) at a steal, I could not help but blind buy and it truly is divine - the citrus is fuller and more persistent in the Parfum expression and the floral notes are more grounded : the Parfum feels like a walk amidst a flowering garden with the florals and the greens, instead of the EDT which feels more like a walk around an empty room with a bouquet from this garden.

It may not have astounding silage but people around you will definitely enjoy it and it holds its own against others such as Tuscan Leather when I wore them at the same time with application to different parts of my body.

Delicate and refreshing...

Again, I am impressed by the work of Jean-Claude Ellena. This is an example of something beautiful and something which I think is a classic in the making.

First of all, I think because this task was given to someone like Ellena, the perfume really became something special in terms of female fragrances. It's very common to have a light, fruity floral mix which smells generic. But here, the focus has been on the balance between the delicate white florals, and a beautiful citrus undertone (mainly from grapefruit). You have notes like Gardenia and sweet pea and and a delicate lightness with just a touch of creaminess beneath, but never overpowering.

One thing I like about this fragrance is that at no point does this descend into powdery floral territory. In fact it keeps this delicate floral citrus balance throughout (which in my opinion is very hard to do). Again it shows the work of a master perfumer in my view.

With regards to performance and longevity, this Eau de Parfum projects on my skin for the first 4-5 hours, with a further presence of about 2 hours after that. I feel that it does perform like an Eau de Toilette and I do with it would last longer. I can see this working very well in spring and summer, and great for wedding parties etc.

Really recommend this one as it stands out from the crowd of generic summer florals, and shows itself as something more delicate and beautiful. Really wonderful!

This is a brisk, warm-weather daytime scent that will get you out of the house, to the office, or to brunch, or out shopping without much hassle. It combines spiky grapefruit and soft, musky melon, with gardenia and lily eventually blooming to add texture, softening and bolstering the perfume to a gentle but persistent, creamy whole. Green notes freshen up the middle and prevent this composition from becoming overpoweringly sweet--just right for mornings when the senses need a little extra stimulation.

Sillage and projection are fairly minimal in cooler temperatures, but this scent blooms nicely in heat. It smells fresh, and flirts with soapy, but ultimately pulls back from the edge. But the best part of this perfume is its greenness, chilly and unexpected, peeking through its florals and fruit, adding sophistication that isn't apparent on first glance. (And the bottle is truly fabulous, quality glass with the size and heft of a paperweight. I even like the bit of repousse bling on top).

This contemporary chypre composition might be inspired by Edmond Roudnitska's Le Parfum de Therese (Frédéric Malle).
Imagine e.g. LPDT's melon – a rather aquatic, ozonic and, not only for that reason, an unusual note in its day, the 1950s – replaced by a salty, mineral texture and mango – a successful note on the Brazilian and Asian fragrance marketplace and, maybe also for that reason, one of Jean-Claude Ellena's lately favored characters.
