Thread: Hermessence Longevity?
I have been finding that with adequate moisturizing, I can boost longevity a bit. I guess the lotion can act as a substrate to help absorb fragrance rather than let it get absorbed by the skin (and thus no longer be detectable). There's also the matter of the seasons. If you have a dry/arid environment, I suspect longevity won't be very good for most any fragrance.
So if a fragrance is just inherently shy on longevity, there is always the measure of bringing along a small spray bottle to freshen yourself. Of course, the more sprays the faster the fragrance goes and... when you're talking $2.4/1ml, that can be a bit annoying.
Seriously, hermessence is weak. I get better projectivity with Voyage and Terre than when I use hermessence line.
poor sillage and longevity i wouldnt never spend so much money for these perfumes
I love their sheet, transparent style. It's a nice refreshing change-of-pace from the hissy, radiant, hit-you-over-the-head designer scents that I'm surrounded by every day.

I agree, Mike.
I wore Santal Massoia on Sunday - I had dismissed this initially due to it's non sandalwoodiness but it's great if you take it for what it is and it actually stayed very present for hours . . . and hours.
