    Default Favorite Hermes (other than Terre d'Hermes)

    This is basically, exploring more into their exclusive line. We all know what TdH is, but I am interested in their other offerings as well.

    ROCABAR, not listed, my favourite HERMÈS
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Eau d'Orange Verte, not listed. I've been wearing it for decades. I like the Concentré, but I like the Eau more.

    Of the Hermessences, I like Osmanthe Yunnan, and that is only in the summer. It really blooms in the heat.

    I voted for Voyage d'Hermes because i absolutely love it. ONLY the Eau de Parfum version though. Amazing smell, excellent P&S, and MONSTER longevity.

    However, i also like Equipage. Its very nice!

    I voted for Vétiver Tonka, which I like just a bit better than Ambre Narguilé and Brin de Réglisse. Of the non-Hermèssence frags, I prefer Eau d'Hermès and Eau de Gentiane Blanche (both not listed).

    Equipage.
    I also like the refreshing Eau D'Orange can't resist using it although it's a bit too clean and the drydown too antiseptic.

    It's équipage. French "é" is different from French (or English) "e", and sounds more like a German "e" (the accent over "é" often disappears in capital letters, though, but the sound is still "é"). The final "e" is silent and the "g" is voiced, like "zh". Stress on the final syllable with the "a" long:

    [é-ki-'pa:zh]
