    Default Terre D'hermes or Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense?

    Hi - I am new and looking for a long lasting everyday sent to wear at the office and weekends. Which do you think is a better choice (or do you have additional suggestions)?

    Also, is there a significant difference between the EDT and EDP on the Terre D'hermes?

    Thanks!

    Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense. I dont like Terre at all. The edp is maybe a little less peppery/flinty than the edt to me, but still not enough for me to like it.

    Both are nice.
    Depends on whether you want soapy or earthy.

    Prada Amber PH = an almost metrosexual clean soapy shaving cream smell. Excellent for what it is - one of the best. Does not 'dress down' to casual clothes very well though.
    TdH = orange, flinty, very masculine, almost rugged smell. IMO does not 'dress up' very well. More casual than Amber PH.

    I too might suggest something like Prada Amber Intense for daily wear, and in a way it is a halfway point between Amber PH and TdH. Amber Intense still has a bit of the soapiness of Amber, but is spicier and more masculine with a prominent cardamom note along with a hefty dose of myrrh and patchouli. This dresses up or down exceptionally well, imo.

    Edit: oops, thought the title said TdH vs Prada Amber (original). Well, obviously my vote goes to Amber Intense then!

    I have and love all three. Between the the TdH, I prefer the parfum. It feels richer and classier to my nose with a longer lasting top note. With that said, I also reach for the edt more often as a scent to wear in the daytime or for casual wear. I use the parfum when I am going out at night and for more formal occasions, or just sometimes when I feel like it. Both are great scents and I use both at any time. I find that the edt goes through more radical changes from top to middle to dry down than the parfum and I enjoy that a lot, but the pure parfum is classier and richer. A hard choice and I love both.

    The PAPHE is a beautiful scent but more "mainstream" in its construction. It does not seem to draw as much attention as the TdH choices simply because it is not as unique. I don't get the soapiness from this like I do from the non-extreme version, the two are very different and I find the Extreme version (an edp) to be warmer and a much more pleasant choice. I also have to say that I bought the HAPHE last spring and did not like it at all in the warmer months but now that it is colder I am loving it. It is a scent I can wear at any time of day and for any occasion, but for me I only want to wear it when it is colder.

    Prada Amber Pour Homme for me, it is like an more mature La Nuit de l'homme and more wearable that Musc Ravaguer or L'instant. The myrrth / chocolcate note is quite seductive and is deeper LNDL and more versitile the the latter mentioned above.

    TDH Parfum (which I own and looking to sell) is a grapefruit opening with a dry sandalwood/vetiver drydown. I prefer my Vetiver Extraordinaire or Noir Epices for a intersting fruity/dry/stark fragrance in my wardrobe and just Bigarade Concentree for the opening. Not that TDH isn't classy in the woody/bonedry category, but somehow I just find it interesting enough as I always pick NE/VE/Fahrenheit over this.

    I think TDH only has EDT or Pure Parfum concentration, not EDP.

    200ml is Pure Parfum (or only Parfum).
    Check your bottle, there is no Eau write in there

    Thank you everyone. Since my original post back in November, I decided to go with the TDH Parfum and absolutely love it! I wear it at least once or twice a week and it never gets old. It has amazing longevity on me and it has such a great dry down. Since joining this board back in November, I've amassed quite a collection and am enjoying all of my purchases! This board has been great, although I am now poorer as a result! I just ordered Live Jazz and Rive Gauche today. Thanks again!

    What's most important is that you like it and that you can wear it repeatedly with pleasure and comfort. It would be TdH for me, though. And I actually think that it dresses up nicely.

    After wanting some for a few months, I finally got off my butt and ordered a bottle of TdH edt today. I can't wait!

    Gotta love both versions of TDH.

    Just wore both today. The EDT is a bit more acid citrus like in the top notes, while the Perfume version is less citrus and more woody from the get go - both perform very nice on my skin.
    I prefer the EDT for spring/colder summer and the perfume version for fall and the warmer winter months.

    Don't use either of my TDH's for warm summer nor cold winter - there are better choices for this particular climate IMHO
