    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.
    Current top 10 (No order):


    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
    9. Gucci Pour Homme II
    10. Dior Homme Intense

    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.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    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 )

    4. Armani Privé - Oud Royal

    6. Dior - Vetiver
    7. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
    8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    9. Amouage - Jubilation XXV
    10. Creed - Royal English Leather

    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.
    TOP 5:

    1. Dia Man
    2. Tawaf
    3. Skin Graft
    4. Norne
    5. Incense Extreme

    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.

    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.
