    Thumbs up Terre d'Hermes...

    WOW!
    Just smelled this at Sephora for the first time today and now I know what all the hype is about. Needs about 15-20 minutes to settle in but after that this thing is a beast! I'm thinking about getting this and wearing as my signature scent. Are there a lot of guys that wear this?

    Welcome - yes, it's very popular. I'm not sure we needed yet another new thread about it though. Use the search bar at the top right and you will find endless talk and dozens of samey threads about TdH.
    Smelling good on a budget!

    I prefer Chant De Bois by Le Labo for Anthropologie.

    Smells the same, and I don't have to feel like one of the sheep lol.

    TdH is a wonderful frag w/o any doubt, do note that the EDT is well known, but try the EDP as well, both are very different IMO...

    Now that i think about it, I'm not sure if the tester was the EDT or EDP..I did see the sign for the parfum version. Great, now I'm back to square one. Are they totally different?

    Very nice. I tried Montale Red Vetyver first so I'm partial to that one...

    My 5 years on this website is worthwhile just because I discovered this. I went from not liking it, to craving a sniff again, to wearing it probably 75% of my days now because I'm so confident in it. It is perfect for my office and smells exceptional...the EDT for me. Just love it.

    I wore it today and it's a little boring. I'll have to give it another try some other day but the price isn't worth it for me. Good scent though.

    TdH both EDT or PP are both hella nice. It took me a minute to come around but when I did I did in a big way. Not for nothing, but check out Kinski, Montale's Red Vetyver and maybe even CdG Wonderwood for interesting variations on the theme.

    A dependable, classy workhorse. Yes, there is a difference between the EdT and Pure parfum but that is another story.

    There is an acrid quality to be sure, but it seems like the iso e super gives me a headache after a while. I wonder if bad reformulations and discontinuations are part of the appeal of scents like TdH, because what remains is genetic dept store fare, drug store dreck, and expensive niche that few even know about, let alone sample. One example is Lapidus Pour Homme. The original version had uplifting juniper and pineapple, whereas the new one is a heavy, muddled mess. Yes, I would go for TdH rather than the new LPH if that iso e super (or some other chemical) didn't bother me as much as it does (I can't wear either of these two).

    You can trade in the acrid note for earthy with Cartier Declaration, or with clean and fresh with Malle Bigarade Concentree. All three created by Jean-Claude Ellena. TdH is good - but these other two represent the theme taken to another level altogether imo.

    It's a fab frag. I have the Pure Parfam in my wardrobe, rather than the EdT.

    Try both, but make sure you buy at least one of them!

    Please wear it more than once on your skin before you buy full bottle. This one makes lot of people sneeze.

    terre de hermes is a fragrance that has its good qualities, but i don't like it enough to buy a bottle.

    i don't think a lot of guys (under 35 and outside of basenotes) wear it.

    I'm 24 and bought a bottle last week. Love it. Smells very unique and fresh.

    A real masterpiece for me! This is a designer frag easily with niche quality! One of my ever scents...

    People talk about an acrid note and I don't get it at all. As I said above I didn't start out liking it but it is an all time fave now. All I get is a citrus type blast followed by woods and a super smooth Iso/woods with a hint if that earlier citrus. One of the best dry downs out there.

    Get the SA at Sephora to make you a bottle or two before you buy it.

    I am still torn on this fragrance, sometimes I like it a lot and sometimes I dislike it. I personally feel that it does better in the Winter on my skin, yet I rarely wore it this Winter.

    As some above posters have said it can get boring, the acrid note is in there (not for the entire duration of the fragrance).

    Also a lot of guys don't wear this fragrance so you don't have to worry about that. Understand that here on basenotes, we are a minority in the world, so things in the fragrance world that we know about the common man has no understanding of (i.e. top, middle and basenotes).

    Had a bottle ever since it came out, in 2006. I am now liking the Parfum a lot more than the EdT, so I can see this EdT being my last bottle...
