Refreshing. Uplifting. Rugged. Free Spirited. Energizing. The descriptive list goes on reaching the very depths this very land we live on does. From that sparkling blast of citrus to the trembling, ground shattering earthiness that overwhelms the initial zest, this fragrance does what niche fragrances are known to do: Evolve and intrigue. (Though this is a high end designer fragrance).
Let me rephrase..Terre D'Hermes does exactly what M. Ellena is known to do with his fragrances: Evolve and Intrigue. Ellena is known for his transparent style - literally "see through" fragrances. Give my man a dirty old window and he'll shoot pellets of art right through it in a pattern that's apparent...but when looking through the holes, an entirely new world unfolds right there in front of you.
Starts with a fireworks display of rugged citruses with a sparkling sensation given off by the pepper...dries down to a mellowed orange zest fragrance with a strong woody, earthy, and soil like undertone...which gives off a strong, masculine, yet refreshing sensation. Extremely versatile...can be sported in a suit, a henley and jeans, or T-shirt and shorts, ...anything - any weather - any season - a remarkable creation by JCE.
I wore this once in California..I drove up the Hollywood Hills...found an open patch of land where two buddies of mine and I just sat and relaxed..overlooking the city of LA, the sunset, and the breeze carried whiffs of TdH around us...it was absolutely gorgeous.
Longevity: Phenomenal..can smell it the next day on my skin and clothes if wearing the same T-Shirt or so to bed.
Sillage: Gorgeous and projects well through every phase.
Compliments: The most complimented fragrance in my wardrobe (was my signature scent until Sweet Redemption by Kilian took the helm)
I never endorse blind buys...so definitely a MUST TRY.
