    Cant choose if i should buy the EdT of parfum version of Terre Dhermes

    Heard the EdT is good for summer while the parfum is good for fall

    Is the parfum version really MUCH stronger than the EdT?

    The EDT is quite strong already. Easily 12 hours + on my skin. Haven't sniffed the parfum to compare it to. I actually chuckled a bit when I heard there was a parfum edition coming out. If you haven't physically gotten to try out TDH, I would suggest trying to get a hold of a sample somewhere. Just my 2 cents

    i have 2 samples of the EdT version, i like it alot

    but it fades kinda quicky on me (after 5-6 hours), so i would like to know if the parfum version has better longevity, or if its that strong that im gonna take everybody out (which is a bag thing)

    EDT stays 8 hours on me with good sillage. Great fragrance for many occasions!

    You're going to hear strong cases for both - fact is, if you like one, you'll like the other....get whatever's cheapest and enjoy.

    First, you shouldnt always believe everything you hear... just sample the EDP now, compare it agains the EDT that youve sampled, and go with the one you enjoy the most.
    You dont need other people to tell you which you prefer

    Not which I prefer, like I said, I tested it already but the main reason was asking if the parfum is really that strong, for the ones who did test it

    You won't take ANYONE "out" with the parfum. Really - I can't imagine wearing enough that you could offend anyone after more than 15 minutes drydown. Or even have anyone notice!

    My pleasure! However, in the interest of full disclosure, I've only given this one full wearing. I hope you can source a sample soon to try for yourself. Different strokes and all...

    I'm actually completely happy with the EDT, so I'm scared to try the Parfum. It might either ruin my taste for TdH, or burn another hole in my wallet.

    Well, by the sounds of it, nobody's complaining that the EdT lacks longevity or sillage (as a generalization). So just in that it's a pretty popular frag and, at least personally, I haven't seen many people saying 'I wish this came in a stronger concentration", I have a hunch that it was just a marketing ploy... even the fact that they're calling it a "parfum" when of course, it actually isn't.

    I'd just buy the EdT, it's a great frag and I don't see the point in paying a premium for the EdP, unless there's something I'm missing about it?

    ok, so i tested the pure parfum one and i gotta say guys,

    if the EdT blew you away, then you will love this parfum version

    im gonna buy the parfum one, its a classic in many ways...the smell is just really fresh and citrusy

    and the drydown is a killer in my opinion

    check out the parfum if you havent!!!

    Thanks for all the comments!

    EDT = ljeto i samo ljeto. EDP ne znam, ako je jako gust i topao, može proć po hladnom vremenu, al da bih to ustvrdio moram i sam probati EDP verziju...

    I finally got around to trying the Parfum yesterday and think that while I still have 98% of a 100ml bottle left and a few drops in a 50ml bottle left, its a bit silly to get it. Side-by-side there was virtually no discernable difference, and as far as longevity / sillage go, the original lasts all day and then some on me anyway!

    I was surprised at the price down here though; I was expecting $200 AUD +, its 'only' 150.
