    Default Terre d'Hermes or Guerlain L'Instant - EDT or EDP?

    Whats up.

    I decided i want a new winter fragrance and after previously trying both and liking them as well i decided it is time to buy one.

    The only thing i didnt get a chance to try is the EDP version of TDH, but i am sure it is great.

    If you were to choose only one at this time, which would you choose and what version; EDT or EDP?

    Thanks for the help

    I only tested the EDT version of both yet, but without hesitation L'Instant.
    1) I prefer the smell, of course
    2) TdH is often described as better for hotter weather, when L'Instant is a very appropriate choice for cold weather.

    Easy, either version of TdH. Can't beat that flinty orange magic.

    Terre d'hermes either version. EDT of guerlain doesnt last long enough to enjoy and the EDP version is super cloying and hard to find.

    I choose L'instant EDP! Deep, rich, and comforting. I love it!

    Both very nice. Buy both.

    If you have to go with one for now- I say L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme.

    TdH very well crafted scent too, but L'Instant is incredible to me.

    Yeah I don't really get the love for Terre d'Hermes. Definitely not bad, but I just find it boring. Well made? Yes. Just not really interesting.

    Yeah the only place I see it at is Escentual.

    I know someone had mentioned that they knew a place who sold it for relatively cheap overseas. I know it's easier to get in Europe. It's even at the French Sephora.

    I own them all and like them all. That said, TDH is my favorite scent, so obviously I would choose that one easily. Both the edt and pp are equally good IMO, but for winter I think I would go pp.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie

    sr_dedo, welcome to basenotes.

    I've only tried Terre d'Hermes once in EdT and L'Insant pour Homme a few times, but I say the L'Instant. Terre came across a bit too much as cologne as opposed to a unique scent.
