    Question Acqua Di Gio VS Terre D'Hermes parfum (for summer)

    Hello, after days of testing, I'm deciding between Acqua Di Gio and Terre D'Hermes parfum for this summer. I like the scent of both.

    ADG smells really fresh, energetic and clean. An overall great scent for my liking.

    TDH is not 'aqua', but is still richly citrus and has more character. I like it however I'm worried that TDH is more towards the mature crowd/married men? I'm 23 years old. Also would the parfum version be too overpowering in the summer?

    What would you choose if you were me? Thanks a lot!

    Hi and welcome to basenotes.

    Tdh is not to my taste so I would go for ADG.

    AdG is very popular and a good aquatic but it is everywhere on everyone. If that does not bother you, go for it. TdH is good at any time and although not all that uncommon, it is a lot more unique than AdG and can be worn at any time of year or time of day. As far as your age goes, don't let that influence your choice. Wear what you like! I vote for TdH.

    ADG. Why not be the most interesting or appealing guy wearing a beloved scent everybody likes, instead of being defeated by it? Own it!

    AdG is nice, TdH is classy. I like both, but I'm tired of AdG already, so I'm going with TdH.

    Oh, welcome to basenotes!

    Terre all day, the edc is smoother and cleaner to me though and also lasts a looong time just like edp. I had to visit the hospital a few weeks ago and one of the male nurses was wearing it and i overheard a few people talking about how good the guy smells.

    I like and have them both, but of the two, I'd choose Terre D'Hermes parfum

    Though it is a Parfum strength scent, it is a skin hugger (at least from my experience) with hours on end longevity but a low to moderate scent cloud. For the summer, I would surely go TdH over AdG.

    TDH any time of year is way too cloying for me and those around me. ADG is perfect for the summer.

    ADG by a mile.

    Since you're looking specifically for a summer frag, I'm'a say Aqua Di Gio as it really shines in the heat.

    TdH for me but I don't care for most aquatics.

    ADG is good start especially for summer, I often use TDH in spring and fall.

    If we're going to base this choice on the scent itself rather than how popular it is, then Acqua Di Gio by miles and miles. It's much more of a crowd pleaser than TDH and is comfortable to wear. I've gotten nothing but compliments with ADG and it's perfect for the summer.

    Welcome to basenotes, hunterkev!

    Td'H is nice, classy and very versatile. It's perfect at any time of the year. AdG is fresh and aquatic and I strongly dislike aquatic fragrance.
