    Default Terre d'Hermes vs Varvatos Artisan

    Before I start getting pelted by rotten fruit..........I wanted to get feedback on this subject because to me there are some similarities (orange) between the two. I own Artisan and it was a bad buy. It's there and its gone and the opening is nice but, the drydown (what's left of it) sucks. So I will be interested to hear any opinions people here have on this matter..........thanks

    Terre d'Hermes has a warm woodsy dry down. With Artisan, it's a flatter woodsy dry down that's missing the pick me up kind of pop that TdH has.

    I don't think there is any comparison to be made. TdH is leagues better.

    My take on this is that this isn't really comparing oranges to orange (technically it is, but you catch my drift).

    Terre d'Hermes has the darker, dirtier bitter orange notes combined with the warm woods that doesn't travel so far that it gets too heavy for warmer months or too light for colder months. Artisan is more of a unitasker. It doesn't work too well in the colder months. The orange is brighter and sparkly for warmer months. The woods are there just to mellow down the sharp, fresh orange. Which is usually the case with citrus frags to prevent them from giving you a crazy headache.

    No comparison in the orange, at all, to my nose.

    Which is really good news to me, because no comparison here, either. Except for certain musks, your nose still predicts mine. Whew!

    TdH is orangey grapefruit bergamot geranium cedar Iso E Super plus minerals goodness.

    Artisan is fresh green synthetic citrus milky cool summer alternative to an aquatic.
