Just received 9 samples from scentmonkey.com..they forgot to send the last one Versace man so I'll wait for that one to be sent but hey...I tried the Mitchum unscented for the armpits..lol and I just put on Terre D' Hermes for today out of the samples.
Smells fresh and nice! Is it me or am I smelling oriental woodsy a bit?
I like it right off the bat, a little on each inner elbow and both wrists and 2 dots on each side of the neck.
I like it...it's strange....it is a bit "Old School" smelling with a fresh oriental woodsy smell.
lets see how it dry's down.
Thanks guys. So far Hermes is a good one! lol
I wonder if you guys could tell me what note or ingredient is in Terre D' Hermes that I also smell in Polo Blue in its basenote as well.
Follow me here for a minute. I put on the Hermes yesterday and the top notes smelled o.k., The drydown was completely different and I do not like Terre D' Hermes. Wow...what a difference when it dries down!
It has an "Old School" smell with a Basenote ( or an aftersmell) that I smelled in POLO BLUE! I swear I'm not crazy..lmao... just goes to show you that you really HAVE to wear a cologne and try it out to it's 8 hour maximum.
I smelled a clean oriental smell at first and then it's basenot and drydown was not good IMHO. It wasn't on the list that everyone told me to try, I did this one on my own and added it to the samples that I got, big mistake.
Can anyone tell me what is in the Base of Hermes that is also in the basnote of Polo Blue...I smelled that spicy 'Old lady-ish" smell mixed with a cologne...thats what it smells like to me.
I think one of you said that my tastes are that of "metallic" smelling colognes?
Today I'm going to try Herrera for men, put a dab on my pinky and it smells o.k....lol...for now
Thanks guys I hope you can help me with the basenote in both colognes...whatever that is, that I have to stay away from..it's definately a basenote cause it was there 8 hours after I put it on.
