    Post Concentré de Pamplemousse Rose by Hermes

    I'm starting this thread because there seems to be basically zero information out there on this fragrance. I believe it is fairly new release, and I wanted to know if anyone has tried it. I am curious as to if the smell is different in this concentrated version, as well as what kind of projection/longevity to expect.

    I have this and don't notice any detectable difference. The longevity is much better than the original for me.

    I didn't know this existed. Will have to try sometime.

    GF and I were testing scents at Saks, and I didn't double take at the bottle when she was testing it, just immediately said "you gotta try Nicolai's Balle De match if you like that one", I just assumed it was the Eau until I saw the threads on here about it being "Concentre", I gotta go back and test it, to see if the moss or vetiver or base strength/opaqueness have been increased. If it's good, I hope they release 200ml bottles, cause just like Concentre D'Orange Verte, I assume I'll still need a very heavy application.

    I meant to post to this and forgot! Anyway, the concentree has pretty good longevity, quite amazing for a citrus really. Probably an hour or more. What a juicy, appetizing pink grapefruit note. Not much more, but it does that very well.

    can you please clarify this. because your post currently reads that the longevity is 1 hour. which would not be "quite amazing".

    I think they smell a bit different. I was just at the Hermes boutique a sniffin last week and tried this. Nothing I ever try at Sephora makes an impact on me, but when I go to the source, its a different story. I really loved the original, and then the SA pulled out the concentree and his advice was the non concentree was better "in his opinion" and I tended to agree as well. I just liked it better for some reason. Now does Anybody at all get a Christian Dior Eau Sauvage vibe to this fragrance? There is something I find intoxicating, especially after about an hour that just makes me think of Eau Sauvage, and I thought this could be its replacement until the duration lasted as long as the ES.
