    Interesting comparison! Your comment me of some delicious Sauvignon/Semillon I've had from Entre Deux Mers. I definitely get that grassy vetivery impression and citrus in Sauv Blanc.

    As many others have stated as well - and I'm speaking more for the Parfum version which I like a bit more - I enjoy the rich citrus blend early on, then how the flint note blends in, and finally the nice woody, vetiver base. It's rich & sophisticated, yet earthy & clean all at the same time. I just find it well blended, transitions well, is pretty versatile and oh yeah, as hednic stated, simply just smells good on my skin.

    Anybody tried Aramis by Aramis? It smells so much alike.

    Don't get this at all. Not even close. Aramis is powerhouse sweet/80s to me and not close to TdH. But that is why we are here..noses are different.

    If you think about it, Terre d'Hermes really does corner a great deal of the designer market in the realm of “dirty (or earthy, that's better) citrus." If you walk into a department store, for instance, you are much more likely to encounter traditional citruses in the vein of a John Varvatos. This apparent monopoly of the earthy citrus niche probably lends Terre some popularity points.

    Yes, provided you wear Terre D'Hermes while high on cannabis and after taking methilphenidate, sildenafile, metandrostenolone and a little (just a little) ethanol. It does not only smells like Aramis, you can feel it in your groin as well.

    Guess it was not only Ellena's work, we can as well blame it on your avatar.

    Hmmm how about you name me one more (dirty citrus) fragrance with a blend of iso e super, flint, cedar and vetiver. That set of notes is groundbreaking to begin with! Not to mention the impeccably blended red pepper, orange/grapefruit, cumin and cardamom. On top of that, there's little to no musk in the base - that's super rare for a fragrance.

    It's the most unique thing out there!

    The only thing that comes close is Red Vetiver by Montale, which is pretty much just a copy of the Terre d'Hermes (smells like the EdP). At that, even Red Vetiver smells unique and amazing.

    Maybe because the "market niche" of modern vetiver is still quite underexposed, quite unexplored, thus growth potential and increasing customer interest were there.

    Are you sure? I seem to remember some "clean" musk in it...

    This my fourth purchase in my renewed love of fragrance. If I sampled it earlier it would be my first, when I put this on in the morning, I am enveloped in a wonderful refreshing cloud of bergamont for the rest of the day... I just love how it smells to my newbie nose.

    I also have the new L'Ambre des Merveilles (which is marketed to woman, but was sold to me, and I really like it as well) - am I wrong to want to try another Hermes?
