    Default Terre d"Hermes - EDT vs Parfum

    I know there have been some past threads asking this question, but I thought I would make it into a poll. For my personally, I prefer the Parfum much more than the EDT. I sold the EDT but I'm thinking of purchasing the Parfum.

    1. Pure Havane
    2. Menthe Fraiche
    3. Tobacco Vanille
    4. L'Air Du Desert Marocain
    5. Green Irish Tweed
    6. Fahrenheit
    7. Musc Ravageur
    8. Tonka Imperial

    EdT shows mouch better on my skin, better projection, mouch more versatile, and in EDT everything i love in Terre is clearer and sharper ( which is good thing in my case ) .... So at the and my choice would and two time was EdT.

    Yep. The EDT gives me better projection, and both last the whole day and then some. The key difference is the scent - whether you prefer the brighter sharp citrus and vetiver of the EDT, or the more earthen, bitter citrus and wooden Parfum.

    The EDT is excellent, the Parfum is exquisite. I'll likely replace both when they run out.

    EDT was a little too out there for me. Parfum is smoother to my nose and more versatile.

    Yes , EdT is a bit sharper, or better said Parfume is smoother, so choice is clear, if u like sharpnes ( which i prefer ) go for EdT, if u want something smoother EdP. My skin gives me trouble, smooter ( or like i say warmer parfumes ) goes to close to my skin, and projection is quastionable almost always.

    I own and absolutely love both near equally, but have a very slight preference for the edt as I get better sillage out of it and I enjoy its less polished overall feel a bit more.

    I recently picked up samples of both from Sephora to compare. I am really liking both, but leaning towards the EDT for purchase.

    I've smelled both briefly at the store so I don't have that much experience with it. Terre D'Hermes EDT smelled nice, but Terre D'Hermes Pure Parfum smelled heavenly. Based on scent alone I'd give it to the Pure Parfum. It just smelled like a more refined version of the EDT.

    I'm looking to pick a bottle up of the Parfum soon. Here's hoping it isn't too pricey (it probably will be )

    Only sorry that I cannot vote for both, since I like both. But if I could choose only one, it would be the Parfum.

    I like the EDT more. The Parfum has a strange sweaty, onion-like smell on my skin.

    Like and own both but find I can use the EdT better in the warmer months, with the Parfum working better for me in cooler weather.

    I like them both but parfum a bit better. Actually, I don't wear either now as much as Cartier Declaration Essence :-P

    I own both and love them both.
    But I prefer the EDT, as it has more sillage and does not differ much in longevity from EDP...

    Voted for Parfum, it's less citrusy, it's richer, bolder.

    I voted EDT. The Pure Parfum doesn't last on my skin more than 3 hours, I tried different bottles just in case my first bottle was off but they're all the same.

    EDT for me easily. EDT has a sharpness to it that I love and I get great sillage and longevity with it. No denying the Parfum's richness but it is missing that "edge" I actually enjoy with the Edt.

    Anyway... my vote is for TdH Parfum. Both versions are excellent, but I adore the drydown of the Parfum.

    voted EDT, due to better projection. But scent wise, I have to say Parfum is better

    Used to really like the edt, but alas traded it away after negative comments from an ex-girlfriend. Tried the Parfum again after a few years recently at a duty free and very nearly pulled the trigger on it. Good stuff, a nice and easy "dumb reach".

    Tried a 10 ml decant of both, prefer the parfum, but did not end up buying a bottle at the end.

    I tried Parfum when I got to know about Terre D Hermes ....it was a disaster --was too strong and heavy for me ....so was off this line completely ...then I got an opportunity to own a small --12.5ml mini of EDT ---and absolutely loved it ....post which I bought a 100ml of EDT & then 120 ml of Eau tres fraiche as well ..and both these especially the EDT has become a main staple for me ...for any special occasions professionally or personal social set-up ...
    my advice ...try EDT first ...then fraiche ...and then Parfum ....!

    I have a 6.8 oz parfum. I like both, but find the EDT to be more sharp. The Parfum is more rich, smooth without the sharpness, and bolder. If you want it to appear light, just mist and do a walk through.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
