After reading some really great reviews and seeing it pop up rather often in the forum, I thought I would give it a try; it sounded very much like the style of scents that I love. I am very happy that I did because it was exactly what I was looking for. I purchased it a few days later and it has been one of my favorites ever since.

    So, how about you?

    Actually having just read MRHero's post above Id like to revise my previous post...
    I too hunted down TdH because of its reviews here, and that first sampling resulted in a purchase... I had quite forgotten.

    Creed's Original Vetiver; blind buy and I was hooked!

    Terre d'Hermes. It has never left its chaise in my pantheon of scent.

    Sorry to "copy" *ehem* but I was all set to give up on Terre d'Hermes as well and because of the reviews here I tried it again and was hooked. It's now one of my favorites of all time. Because of Basenotes, I'm a fragrance fanatic! Thank you Basenotes!

    Well, first of all, Basenotes inspired me to order a whole bunch of samples. That in turn has lead to the definite purchase - imminent if not yet actualized - of Knize Ten, which I've fallen in love with.

    Ah, my first Basenotes buys - four L'Artisan decants: L'Eau de L'Artisan, Mure et Musc, Ananas Fizz and the love-at-first-sniff Voleur de Roses.

    Thank you, guys and gals, for paving the way to my slippery slope

    Terre D'Hermes.

    My addiction to fragrances is a recent thing. It all started when all I wanted to do was to look up what people 'thought' of a few fragrances I saw for sale on a flyer. Then it just snowballed and the next time I got to a store, I was checking out all the stuff people on here repeatedly mentionned or liked.

    Pretty much everything I have, I was influenced on buying because of basenotes.

    Damn you.

    I am almost certain it was three scents. GIT, Himalaya and Vera wang for men. I had no Idea one could find these scents on the web so I drove about 130 miles round trip to a Neiman Marcus north of Detroit near the Palace at Aubern Hills Just for the Creeds. Saw the Vera Wang as an aside and thought. What the hay might as well get that too. The Git and Vera still thrill me. I have a come and go relationship with himalaya. I don' dislike it but sometimes its like eeeeeeh maybe I'll wear it maybe not.

    Dior Homme was the first scent I can really remember buying based on reviews and ravings of people here. I bought it blind, obviously, and it worked out in my favor. I got a scent that I will never be without again.
