Hey !

Just a quick update,

Got a good deal for T'erre D'Hermes Parfum : 40 $ for 80% full.

Had heard a lot of praise about this one and since where im at, it

usually retails for 140$, I pulled the trigger.

Loved It, my opinions on It have changed from the first time I sniffed

it, maybe I have been sampling a lot of stuff, and it finally dawned upon

me that It is indeed a masterpiece.

On a side note, a get a slight resemblance to blue de chanel, could

this be the grapefruit citrus combo ?

Two Questions.

1. The bottles code is 9JAAR, after reading a couple of posts, this leads

me to believe that it is from the year 2009 ( Please correct me if im wrong.)

Funny thing, in the ingredients listed I see "Evernia Prunastri (Oakmoss)

Extract (Evernia Prunastri)."

Wasn't Oakmoss supposedly banned ?

Or is the ingredient listed a slightly modified synthetic to give that feel, but is

not oakmoss ?

Do current versions have oakmoss listed ?

2. This is labeled as a Pure Parfum, now Im not one who has a lot of experience

but Is'nt pure parfum supposed to be that perfume oil that is generally diluted with alcohol and water ?

Im testing this and M7 Fresh side by side, its been 4 hours since initial

application and from where this is heading, It looks like M7 Fresh is going to win

the longevity race.

Speaking purely technically shouldnt the pure parfum last days and days to come ?

Same thing happened with me when I was side testing Eau Sauvage parfum with the


The EDT lasted way loner than the parfum.

I know my logic is flawed somewhere, just waiting for someone to show me where


Thanks for your time,
