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.
    Yes - the slight differences are wonderful. My wife loves the shower gel - she poaches it from me all the time, and it's running low. I agree that the balm is awesome, but I have not tried the lotion - hmmm. And the soap does sound good, too, if it persists even a little bit. I also LOVE the deodorant. It's a slightly different take on the fragrance, and I just love that variation.

    Using a combination of body products makes every wear just a wee bit different, and always very enjoyable.

    TdH soap and shower gel are both awesome

    I get that. I would be more excited if they had not tweaked the original version and watered it down a bit. Still, I hope this new version is vibrant with excellent projection and staying power. If so, I would not hesitate to buy a bottle, as TDH is one of my all-time favorite scents. I'm rooting for it to be excellent, but recent releases from many brands have been weak.

    Here's hoping for a great release! I hope it blows me away!

    I sympathise with you Chuck. I bathed in the stuff when it came out in 2006. I've owned a bottle of the EdT since, but alas in late 2013, I gave up on it and didn't buy another bottle of the EdT. The Perfum works just fine, but the EdT just simply isn't what it used to be. I thought of this as my signature scent, but following its reformulation (watering down), it's just not as revolutionary as it was when it first came out.

    We live in hope, so I really do hope this new one makes my mouth drop.

    Default Terre d'HermŤs eau trŤs fraÓche

    Hi,

    I haven't been here for quite some time and don't know whether there has been a thread about the above-mentioned new HermŤs. Has anyone tried it and can tell me something about it? I'll be in Paris in two weeks and would like to know beforehand if it is worth buying.

    Thanks!

    The current TDH edt is very weak as it is, I really dont see the point of an Eau Fraiche version.

    Anyone see / smell this one yet?

    I'm thinking maybe Hermes is slowing down the release of this one to make more time to hype Bel Ami Vetiver.

    Actually, I have a bottle sent to me by a friend in Paris and it smells a lot like a toned down TdH with Pampelmousse Rose on the top. Lighter, not as earthy, but still wonderful.

    FYI: it's available on the US Hermes website as of this morning...not an April Fool's joke. LOL!

    I'm not amongst the bigger fans of the original Terre and while I can't say I'm a huge fan of this either, i think it is a pretty solid release. It shares the same DNA with both Terre and to a lesser extent with Voyage and most of the latest Hermes' masculines. That woody-spicy transparency mixed with a distant lived-in / leathery vibe. All that is embellished by a citrus explosion during the opening that strikes somewhere between Bigarrade Concentree, Eau D'Hermes and Eau De Pamplemousse Rose. I think it's worth of attention, especially if one likes the genre. The bottle design and size / proportions are pretty nice.

    Thanks! ON MY LIST.

    What's cool is that it's no longer a blind buy. I've never even sniffed it, but the directions you've given put it solidly in my BUY zone. Awesome description!

    Alfarom nailing it as usual. How many good designers pop up every day in this time of age? Not many in my book - but this is one of the more solid releases.

    We're not talking ground breaking stuff here, but a very nice designer release trailing the original Terre with some of the same notes intermingled with a pretty good, fresh and not too synthetic watery citrus.

    If you like Terre d'Hermes, you'll probably like this. I love Terre, and I'm picking this up whenever I can afford it - hopefully before summer. A decent comparison can probably be made between Eau Tres Fraiche and Dior Homme Cologne 2013, but with DHC running with more of a white musk in the base with ETF doing more of that none-too-shabby synth-wood drydown.

    Overall a steady concoction.

    Own and love DHC 2013 - glad to hear the comparison. I case I wasn't completely sold before - I am now!

    Can anyone elaborate on the longevity of this flanker?

    Pretty solid longevity on this one. Can't give a specific number, but at least six hours it felt like to me. And also yeah - this does remind me of DHC - which I really like for warmer weather. Terre could very well be a slightly woodsier take on DHC, actually. Nothing wrong with that for me. It's probably more layered and "deeper" if you like, than DHC, but still not that far away in philosophy.

    Be forewarned friends: if ordering from the US Hermes site they completely gouge on shipping. I think the cheapest option is $15! I'd imagine they'd offer free shipping given the fact their stuff is overpriced to begin with, but conversely, they are Hermes so they can pretty much charge whatever they want for their stuff.

    Projection was better than I thought. Was noticeable by people in the same room as I, and I had just given it one spray on the back of my hand.

    Tried a decent blast on paper and wrist at Duty Free and it's nice enough - an earnest citrus rather than a perky smiley facet one - but not something I really need . . . I have a lot of respect for the original release of TdH, it was something of a game changer IMO, and if it's one you still enjoy then this new one might be a nice one to have but taken on it's own it's just 'OK' and it seems a bit odd that you have to sort of 'remember' the original to 'get' what this is supposed to be - if that makes any sense.

    Or, to put it another way, they called have called it anything, really . . .
