    Exclamation HERVE GAMBS PARIS: any lover?

    can't find any reviews around here, purchased Ombre Sauvage yesterday and seems to be pretty interesting, was also given samples from the whole line, they all seem to be on the feminine side of the unisex spectrum... has anybody impressions to share?
    Thanks in advance!

    Have the entire line of 11 fragrances from the house. They're all very nice especially the Extrait the Parfums which I have been wearing for two years now. Hope you like Ombre Sauvage. Would llike to hear your thoughts once you get it. It's my favorite in the EDPs

    pretty sure you knew them, I purchased (in a shop, so it's already home) Ombre yesterday but no full wearing, yet...the sample session were pretty promising..are the cologne really intense or do they fade away pretty soon?

    The 3 Cologne Intense fragrances are at 10% concentration so they are a bit weaker than the EDPs from the house which are 12% concentration and won't last that long. Intense is a bit of a misnomer with these.

    Do you live in Europe, The States, or elsewhere in the world?

    You're lucky because access to that house is so much easier.

    Finally glad to know that after more than 2 years, First in Fragrance in Germany finally carries the line and Statesiders who would like to try them and before couldn't, now have an opportunity at their disposal!

    i sampled this house at the beginning of my perfume journey, and i'm revisiting the samples today, and I must say this house is quite good (apart from 2 or 3 that lean too feminine)
    they are original and smell quite interesting.
    not the usual scent that you've smelled 100x times
    worth getting the sample set

    if you're a man don't buy
    -Pink evidence
    -La baie des anges
    -Iris royal
    -Coup de grÔce

    the others range from "good" to "sublime".
    they are original but still very wearable
    and one of them (Hotel riviera) has a note that reminds me of a tea perfume from "Maisons du monde" I used to get as a room scent, and i could jnot find it anymore because it was discontinued, so happy to find that smell again !

    Glad to hear your thoughts for the most part are positive.
