    Default Terre D'Hermes EDT or Pure Parfum?

    What's up? I am trying to decide on whether or not to re-visit Terre D'Hermes and I was wondering if the Pure Parfum or EDT was going to be a better fit for my taste. Please feel free to check my wardrobe. I am kind of leaning towards the EDT for the better projection. However, I am still on the fence so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I'd go with the Pure Parfum. Not aware of an EDP.

    Thanks Hednic for the correction. I didn't know that TDH wasn't available in EDP. I thought the Pure Parfum version was an EDP.

    I'd go with the Parfum. The EDT has too much of a sharp citrus/pine note for me and the Parfum is more earthy. I also think the Parfum has better longevity.

    As with most edt/edp comparisons, my vote is for the edt. I prefer Dior Homme over DHI, L'instant over LIDGE, Opium over Opium edp etc.. TdH Parfum seems muddled and clunky to me. The edt is blended perfectly and wears beautifully.

    I've recently been wearing Guerlain L'eau Boisee and it really reminds me of TdH. Imagine the Guerlain Homme lime Mojito accord with TdH's iso e super base. Check it out for a variation on the same theme, very nice stuff!

    All valid points before - I recommend getting both and layering, then you have the best of both worlds!

    Although I own both and LOVE them, I'd go with Pure Parfum if only one choice I have.

    It is nearly a tie in my case and I probably would have voted "toss up" if the option was available. That said, I have an extremely slight preference for the edt. Both are masterpieces, IMO.
    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)

    Both are very good, but I'd lean more towards the EDT. Less is sometimes more and in this case I just find the EDT a bit easier to wear due to the sharper citrus and less earthiness.

    Though choice. An almost "equal match" for me, since I like and even enjoy the EDT for its everyday classy simplicity, easy to be worn and accesorized, but still prefer Pure Parfum only slightly more, due its additional depth, complexity, edginess and individuality.

    EDT. Both are great but I have only worn the EDT vs sampling PP. I like the sharpness and edge the EDT has and found it really shines in any season and in any circumstance...work, date, weddings, etc. but you can't go wrong either way.

    I own the Parfum. I like it slightly better. I don't think you can go wrong with either IMO.

    I was once in the same position you are in and I bought both. When they ran out I only rebought the EDT, the EDP feels very muddy in comparison and doesn't have the same balance and projection.

    Less is definitely more in this case.

    Default Re: Terre D'Hermes EDT or Pure Parfum?

    I stuck with the EDT. The Parfum was close to the skin lacking projection, and didn't have that flinty sharp accord i really enjoyed and originally fell in love with in TdH.

    The Pure Parfum didn't work on my skin, it lasted for only 3-4 hours with no projection.

    I'd go with EDT.

    While I appreciate the depth of the EDP, I prefer the EDT.

    Both are good but I would prefer the EDT. The parfum is very rich but the EDT is more versatile IMO.

    The difference between the two, to me at least isnt great. I picked the larger bottle and the lower price.

    I personally like EdTs more than EdP's and P's: I find these ones oppresive - they linger on and on and notes feel complez but "shrunk".

    I have both, I enjoy the EdT better than the P. I concur with observations on the sharp feeling of the EdT and easiness of wearing, sillage and versatility. I usually wear them together: one spray of the pure P, three of the EdT.

    Love both, but prefer the parfum.

    And I've owned both. The EdT has more of a light mineral feel to it, while the parfum is richer and more complex. Still, one cannot go wrong with either the EdT or parfum.
