    Default Terre d´Hermes parfume for summer?

    Hello guys,

    today I have sampled both TdH EdT and Parfume. I have to say, that I like parfume version more. I can imagine to wear it in winter (it´s january right now), but I can´t imagine how it would smell like in summer when outside is 25 - 33°C. Parfume stays close to skin, but I would like to know, if it has better sillage in summer and if it´s suitable for wearing it during summer days.

    I think that parfume is kinda sweeter than EdT, but I like it (my favourite summer scent was Lacoste 12.12. Blanc, which is sweet in some way too). I want to wear TdH parfume in spring and summer, for winter I have other favourite scents.

    Thanks a lot!

    I have worn the parfum in the summer in the past and it has performed very nicely. I have never had any issues wearing it during any season.

    I would say yes. Personally I dont feel the EDP is worth the price difference. I have sprayed both and worn...the only difference I detect is in the top...and in particular the citrus note is deeper and more robust in the EDP. After about 30 minutes or so ...they dry down the same.

    At least to my nose...and a lot of others.

    Yes, TdH Parfum wears well for me in the Summer, even in the humid Houston weather. Only modification is I will spray a little bit less to avoid getting too crazy if I'm outside for an extended period of time.

    Thanks guys!
    I am wondering if the projection is at least a little bit better in summer.

    Agree with others that the PP should be fine in the summer. Great scent!

    edit: if you want better projection, go for the EDT (my preference)

    Agree with this. The parfum hangs on forever, but starts and ends with close projection. Hard to go wrong with either concentration.

    I have the EDT and EDP - I like the EDT better - it is sharper and just a stone cold classic. The EDP is good in its own way (darker). I would use both in the summer.

    They are both versatile. I would probably lean towards the EdT for the summer, and I know about summer; 40 C degrees plus for the whole of this week!

    TdH is a great all-weather scent imo. I always here the EDT is superior in the projection department, though. I haven't smelled the PP but I understand the difference isn't night and day (Edt is more citrus while PP is more woods). However, considering how strong the Edt is on me (only 1 spray to work and I'm good) I would be curious to see what the PP has in store as it pertains to density/thickness. Hopefully it won't be too overwhelming for you.

    Parfum version is no longer in production if I am correct. Get the Parfum first. Lovely Dark Orange scent that can be worn anytime.

    i wonder why in my skin edt has more projection and sillage than edp

    Default Re: Terre d´Hermes parfume for summer?

    Vintage version got higher oil concentration. You may have got the earlier edt to compare.

    I am a heavy smoker and I can smell parfum better than edt comparing current formula.

    I think I would find the Parfum a bit cloying in the summer, but perhaps if you kept to a light application - 1 or 2 sprays - it might not be bad.

    Personally, I've only worn Parfum in colder weather and EdT in warmer.

    You can do either but the parfum is not miles different just a street different besides being a bit less pungent and rounder in the edges by a bit and bit more woodier both will fall into an all season category Frag IMHO ........but to an extend believe the Edt is suited best in summer, not to say parfum is a winter as they're quite similar ....peace

    Its better edt ,the edp is more intense

    I think you can easily wear both during any season. However, I do tend to prefer the EDP during the fall and winter seasons and the EDT during the spring and summer. Of course, living in Arizona, we basically only have two seasons-- fall and summer!

    Few sprays and especially if worn during summer evenings would be, in my opinion, more than appropriate.
