Reviews of Eau de Rhubarbe Écarlate

It smells wonderfully of rhubarb !
It doesn't last very long, but as soon as you transpire a bit ...it exhales subtly from your skin all over again.
And in AL ...there are plenty of occasions for a little transpiring. Love this fragrance.
It DOES have a Hermès kind of core signature that can be detected in ALL Hermès fragrances.

This is a great, slightly syrupy rendition of rhubarb with a bright lemon twist. I absentmindedly sprayed it in a card while in the shop, and was completely surprised by how rhubarb-y it was. The scent seemed quite familiar, and I quickly realised it smells a bit like a brighter, more acidic version of YSL Babydoll, sans the grapefruit, roses, and other flowers that scents has. The Hermes scent is much less pink and girly, but still quite fruity for a scent marketed as masculine.

I loved the rhubarb note so much that I asked for a sample, thinking I might be interested in this as a more grown up version of Babydoll, but unfortunately it does not last at all on my skin; after half an hour the rhubarb completely disappears. I won't be investing in a full bottle, but I'm happy to finish the sample.

I loved the sharp citrus/rhubarb opening, but it fades quite quickly to a floral musk with just hints of rhubarb and one that for me would suit a mature woman.

I have none of the childhood gustatory memories of eating rhubarb or rhubarb pie or anything rhubarb flavored for that matter. I came to rhubarb as an *adult* in life. I read recipes, and figured out how to make it sweet and every summer I spent way too much time seeking it out at the grocery store and preparing it.

Sure, there's that wonderful Comme des Garcons Sherbet scent that smells a tiny bit like rhubarb (awash in cream and white musks) and even the often-ignored Comme des Garcons White has a here-and-then-gone whiff of rhubarb after the spice burns off. But this Hermes cologne...this is the real deal.

The problem is...that zany rhubarb note doesn't last longer than a few minutes before it quickly transforms to a mildly citric, slightly wood and fresh/musk type scent. I even tried layering it with Shower Gel and then an over-application of the Cologne: a few more minutes of rhubarb were added - but that's about it. I tried even spraying on clothes. This didn't help the rhubarb 'stick'. :(

Which is unfortunate, because this is perhaps the BEST rendition of rhubarb in perfumery that I've ever encountered.

I initially loved this scent and bought the full large bottle. However after a few weeks it sort of wore thin on me. Still a great scent though.
