    Default Terre D' Hermes or Paul Smith Extreme

    Hello Basenoters:

    I have both Terre D' Hermes and Paul Smith Extreme in my cologne arsenal.
    I consider the Paul Smith to be one of my favorite scents. Does anyone
    else see any kind of similarity between the two? I've gotten compliments
    on both, but I feel more comfortable with Smith.

    IMHO, I think you could say that the Hermes is an Orange Deep or maybe
    even Extreme. As far as Smith, I think of it as more of an Orange Lite or
    Orange summer, even though I see myself wearing Smith year round.

    I also hear people say that Hermes is better in Summer, even though
    I feel that it has a cloying quality to it. I would more likely reach for it in Winter.

    Anyway, I'd love to hear some thoughts from the experts. I also
    have some Hugo Boss in Motion, which I would classify as Orange Musk.
    The other Orangy frag I have is Handsome by Tova. I would call this
    one Old School Orange.

    Thanks.

    No expert. Have both. Like both. Prefer Terre D'Hermes. Lasts longer on me.

    Paul Smith Extreme is also one of my favorites. Can't really compare it to TdH, which I only sampled once in Nordstrom - I got a little too much "terre" out of it to give it a chance.

    Personally I feel Terre d'Hermes is the only one worth owning of the two.

    No contest for me - Terre d'Hermes is the better composition, but I'm no expert.
