    Default Terre d’Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche by Hermes

    A Terre de Hermes flanker!

    Now Smell This reports:

    Hermès will launch Terre d'Hermès Eau Très Fraîche, a new variation on 2006's Terre d'Hermès fragrance for men (and see also the 2009 Terre d'Hermès Parfum).

    Terre d'Hermès Eau Très Fraîche was developed by perfumer Jean Claude Ellena, and is described as a dialogue between bitter orange and woody notes and a clash between the solidity of earth and the freedom of citrus.

    Hermès Terre d'Hermès Eau Très Fraîche will be available in 125 ml Eau de Toilette. Look for it in March.

    ... although, being a fan of Terre d'Hermes and most JCE releases, I will certainly give this one a try when it comes out. Heck, I have every single Terre item out there, after shaving lotions and balms, shampoo, soaps, deodorant... I predict this new flanker will end up in my collection.

    Sounds like another pathetic attempt at trying to cash in on the "fraiche" craze. I will definitely still give it a sniff. Thanks for the info!

    Ah yes, that old rivalry: the solidity of earth versus the freedom of citrus. I mean, must one choose? That's like choosing between freedom and cardamom.

    I'm curious what this will be like, though. I still enjoy picking up Terre d'Hermes on others, though I no longer own a bottle.

    Fresh. Sort of another way of marketing the term 'eaux' or 'cologne'.

    The freedom of citrus? What drivel. What in the hell is this supposed to mean?

    will sure try, but then again, is sport version here soon? I just hope this doesn't turn into 10+ flankers. sure A*Men could pull it off, Fahrenheit to a certain degree, L'eau d' Issey also and that is not interesting except the intense version. Hermes is devaluing itself, I fear. However, this fraiche version might come to my liking non the less, who knows.

    i just bought a new bottle of TDH (manufactured in October 2013) according to batch and the performances are fine, no sign of any weaker longevity on my skin.

    I am starting to think that many complaints may come from counterfeits purchases (i had the opportunity to smell one and it was quite well done until a certain degree, but the longevity was abysmal; a co-worker of mine, which is not heavily involved in fragrances, didn't realise it was a counterfeit we were testing at that time - based on top and heart notes).

    On-topic: interesting, no more vetiver and pepper (some of the main players in the composition), but aquatic accords. Will definately test. Seems that it is available only in 125 ml size.

    Do we have a more detailed note list yet? I would welcome less vetiver.

    A paradox in a bottle...I've gotta say I'm super jazzed about a new one from Hermes. Flanker? Sure. But at least they haven't gone the path of L'Homme...yet.

    Well, at least Jean-Claude Ellena composed this scent and that says something positive. On the other hand his recent attempts at minimal scents have been very minimal and unipressive for me. This one is supposed to smell watery. Water has no smell unless you drink tap water in LA so I am not going to hold my breath waiting for this flanker, but I will sniff it when I see it. Hope it is good but reserving judgement.

    I'll have to tell my friend about this. He's crazy for TDH. Its been his signature scent for years now. I lost interest when they watered it down to EDC status.

    Me too but I still have hopes for this new one. I'm wearing the Parfum now and it still good compared to the original.

    Own and love the Parfum, was looking toward the Montale Red Vetiver to get even more punch. This goes the other direction, but I am interested in giving this one a try. Might be a really nice twist on a legend.

    LOOOOOL!!!!

    What's amazing is that IFRA is actually making us choose between freedom of fragrance and freedom from allergy. I don't really mind the choice - I just wish there were more options on both sides.

    I just LOVE the Hermès catalog - it is simply filled with that stuff. Pouting French woman in a dubious dress and strange expensive shoes on a barstool in the middle of a field with windmills behind her. An older man in a beret and awesome glasses contemplates an ice sculpture in the middle of the desert. A topless couple runs across a field with a blue Mylar cow balloon tethered between them at their ankles. The freedom of citrus! It's beautiful!

    BUT SERIOUSLY.... to give them credit, that is really the tension in this fragrance as described. Woody/earthy/mineralic/dark citrus versus airy/dry/wet/light citrus. The Parfum really went the other way, and that was all good, but I'm ready for a light version, for sure.

    I will not buy blind either, because there have been some "Eaux" lately that I am very glad I didn't buy blind.

    I just find it very interesting how all these different products take Terre in slightly different directions. My favorite has to be the after-shave balm (not the lotion, which I also own) - the citrus note is much stronger, the infamous "BO note" some people detect in EDT is practically non-existent, and for an after-shave balm this thing lasts 3+ hours. It's one of my favorite fringe products surrounding a fragrance that I already enjoy. The soap is nice, too, it's nice to 'refresh' the scent on your hands every time you leave the bathroom.

    I love TdH EDT in the summer, but I agree, a more summer-friendly, "lighter" version for our 110-125F summer days, would be a nice option and an alternative to the EDT and PP. I will definitely give this one a try when it comes out.
