    Unhappy Terre d'Hermes - Parfum vs. EdT

    So, on the merits of the fact that Terre d'Hermes EdT was one of my favorite scents with its unique composition and exemplary sillage, next I meant to get its Parfum concentration (as if EdT's 10+ hours of scent life and loud projection weren't sufficient). In fact, as its author Jean Claude Ellena pointed out, my primary purpose was to try slightly different olfactory experience with the Parfum.

    However, checking out the boxes of both EdT and Parfum, I am little confused: The EdT's 3.3 oz. box states the "volume" 78%, whereas the tester box of 2.5 oz. Parfum - 79%. Assuming that these numbers indicate the alcohol content of the fragrance, I can't believe the concentration labeled "pure parfum" contains 21% essential oils, while EdT has 22%?

    Is it really the alcohol content of Terre d'Hermes? Maybe that's why both concentrations smell almost identical, except the smoothness of the Parfum? What would be the alcohol content of Terre d'Hermes Eau de Parfum if there was any?

    Please, share your thoughts, knowledge and advice! Thank you!

    That's pretty interesting to know

    To be honest, I haven't experienced any discernible difference with respect to longevity and projection between the two. Some claim that EdT lasts longer or projects more, some claim that the EdP does. The main difference is the smooth opening of the Parfum compared to the bitter citrus of the EdT.

    PS. EdT > Parfum!

    The parfum has much greater longevity and sillage for me. Have both and find it more potent. Maybe just me.

    Could it be the result of different formulas/ingredients list?

    The question is: do you know why Parfum says "79% volume" while EdT - "78%" - is it alcohol content?
