I don't think it's unfair in this case to lead with a discussion of this cologne's notable weakness - power. As much as I love this frag, I can get neither longevity or sillage from this one. To its credit, these traits mean you will rarely offend, even if you overapply.

I am a new reviewer, but after wearing TdH for a week now, the 'm' word comes to mind -- this is a masterpiece. The zesty orange/grapefruit top/middle notes over a great base of wood/soil make for a lovely point and counterpoint. The balance is near-perfect, and the drydown, while fairly linear (as the top notes seem to remain throughout) is delicious. I don't ever want to run out of TdH so am already stocking up early. A must try for any fragrance lover. Kudos, Hermes!
