    Default Which Terre D'Hermes for a summer scent?

    Currently looking to buy samples of summer scents. So far I'm going to get millesime imperial and Versace pour homme. Which of the 3 Terre D'Hermes formulations is most appropriate for hot summer days? Thanks!

    Yes! Found it VERY good for a summer scent, that is usually something common.

    All 3 are suitable for summer...

    Tres Fraiche being the one "designed" for that, but beware of the cat piss association that some get from this...

    While Eau Tres Fraiche is designed to be lighter and brighter, it's also less original and distinctive. I find all three to be suitable for warm weather and hence have no particular use for ETF. What serves me best is a bottle of ≈75% TdH and 25% TdHP.

    Honestly, I'd pass up the Terre d'Hermes and buy Dunhill Icon instead.

    It's similar to TdH, but MUCH better at what it does, IMO.

    Much cheaper, too.

    I actually find the Eau Tres Fraiche to be performing better than the original. I do not know about the Parfum but I guess it would be the least suitable for summer.

    I'm only into the parfum and find both ETF and regular a bit boring. The parfum I find still light and airy enough to make a good scent for warm weather. It lasts better, it's slightly weirder and offers good development and is entertaining while wearing.

    It's so much cleaner, fresher and brighter. It's perfect for the summer heat.

    Without a doubt. Depending on the climate where you live the parfum could be ok. Depends how on how hot and humid it gets.

    Also, glad to see you're taking pride in your rectal health. Regular colonoscopies are a must for a good colon.

    TDH EDT in the metal flacon works for me, happens to be my SOTD today and is my all time most worn.

    I prefer the original Terre d'Hermes edt, smells great in any weather, does not get cloying or anything like that in warm weather.

    ETF was all oranges to me and very short-lived, so I got rid of it. The EDT is good and I think would be fine for summer.

    Haven't tried Eau Tres Fraiche, but I agree with a lot of the above comments.

    The EDT is wearable in the heat and the flinty mineral note makes it more refreshing. I definitely wouldn't wear the EDP in Summer... Too heavy and the sweetness in the base would become cloying.
