    Default Your Hermes male fragrance favourite

    Which of the 4 male fragrances from Hermes do you like best?
    My 2 favourites are Bel Ami and Equipage. Very difficult to pick out one..

    Default Re: Your Hermes male fragrance favourite

    I like Bel Ami, Equipage and Terre d'Hermes, but if you forced my hand, I would choose Equipage.

    I'm getting into the older Herms scents, but my first one still rules for me: TdH.

    TDH and Equipage. These two are great but if you had to force my hand as well, Geez, well, I'd force my hand onto both if I could lol.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I have to qualify my answer (TdH) with the fact that I only have Equipage and TdH and have not sniffed the others. Equipage I'm having problems warming up to (but I like it) possibly due to the slight Bay Rum notes that it produces on my skin (which I don't really care for) ... Terre d'Hermes on the other hand is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful... and is so like a bitter citrus (in a good way) version of Chanel Sycomore due no doubt to the vetiver, and Sycomore is one of my all time favorites, close to a HG for me.)

    I see we're leaving out unisex scents.
    My Hermes ranking as a house:

    1. Concentre D'Orange Verte
    2. Eau D'Orange Verte
    3. Rocabar
    4. Terre D'Hermes
    5. Bel Ami


    And of the ones you listed, Rocabar.

    Why would you be surprised? It is the Hermes masculine most posted about here. And one of the most reviewed fragrances on basenotes, period.

    I would be surprised otherwise.

    I would choose Eau d'Herms and Eau d'Orange Verte, but I guess they are unisex, huh (per the Herms website)? Both seem masculine to me.

    Picked Bel Ami here.

    I've tried all the male Hermes scents, vintage and current. However, as I have not spent a great deal of time with a few I do not consider myself to be qualified to answer in the poll.

    I own TdH and EdOV and enjoyed Rocabar and Bel Ami. I wore Equipage on my wrist today, courtesy of Nordstroms, and I like it much better than I had in the past but still consider it a bit dated for my tastes. Bel Ami is bright and spicy but I need to give it a full wearing to convince myself I can wear it comfortably. As for Rocabar, well, I don't remember much of Rocabar other than I liked it. Solid, solid house.

    Can't vote. I'd pick Bel Ami for the wonderful experience one day out of thirty, and Equipage for the other twenty-nine. Can't pick better than that. I worship both equally.

    From your four choices, I have Bel Ami, Equipage and TdH. Of these three, my favorite would be Equipage

    From the house of Hermes, my favorites would be: Vetiver Tonka and Ambre Narguile and Un Jardin En Mediterranee. The first 2 are still on my wishlist. Wallet doesn't allow me make them a member of my family yet. hahahaha

    Out of those, TdH. Out of all of them, TdH. Though I did enjoy VdH and Eau d'Orange Verte quite a bit. I like the Jardin's somewhat, but are not bottle worthy to me as these 3 are. I just wish I could find TdH somewhere reduced, but it never goes on sale, at least nothing in my budget. I may have to spring for it soon.

    I'm indifferent on Bel Ami, Equipage and Rocabar and loathe TdH.
    This rotten Orange flower is just too much for me.

    OF those listed I would pick Equipage - my original favorite from Hermes and still a good one.

    But, if chosing favorites from the Hermes line in general I would list:

    Eau de Gentiane Blanche
    Ambre Narguille
    Eau de Hermes
    Un Jardin Sur la Nil
    Eau d' Orange Verte

    Both Equipage and Bel Ami are in my Top Ten list of all time favorite scents.

    Equipage was a signature scent for me for three or four years straight, starting in 2001.

    Used to love Rocabar, but don't like it too much anymore.

    I hate Terre d'Hermes.

    Voyage d`Herms should have been on the list, but it wasn`t in my mind back in 2010 ;-)
    -Now it`s one of my favourits. The pure parfume version is almost "up there" with Terre d`Herms.
