    Question Terre D'Hermes Eau Intense Vetiver for winter?

    Hi!

    Do you think Terre D'Hermes Eau Intense Vetiver will be a good fall/winter fragrance and it’ll be an addition to my collection? I already own Le Labo Bergamote 22, Creed OV and Chanel Sycomore. I don’t really like the heavy leather, oud or rose fragrances for winter (nor for summer, ofcourse.)

    I do! It has a very strong and persistent woody base and loud opening that I think go well during that time of year, when it's cooler.

    Have tested this one enough, including during the colder seasons, in order to recommend it as a solid, versatile and good performance winter choice

    Does this one better than the original TdH?

    The Vetiver Intense is a great cool/cold weather fragrance. It is similar to the edt minus the citrus opening.

    No I don't think this is "better" than the original, but is a totally different fragrance. It is a nice vetiver scent and is excellent vetiver quality when compared to other vetiver fragrances. But, original Terre d'Hermes is a unique combination of woods, vetiver, aromatics that makes it superior to the sum of its parts. The vetiver version is not a good substitute for either the original EDT or the parfum version of TdH, imo. But as a vetiver it stands on its own merit and is as good as many and better than most other vetivers.

    But I mean, is it a better winter frag or not?

    If you want to wear it in the winter, then wear it in the winter. Why does it matter if other people think it's a good fragrance for winter?

    If you haven't tried it, then you need to try it before buying it unless you don't mind possibly wasting money. I think TdH Eau Intense Vetiver is terrible. Really, just an awful fragrance. I do also think the original TdH is bad.

    Very strong and long lasting aromachem. Like forevor. Yes fall, fine in winter. I think summer would be harder than winter. TdH and TdH parfum are more summery.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Perhaps quite comparable, though the Parfum version/flanker of this one performs better in all weather conditions, including in winter

    Absolutely.

    Other than the brief bitter grapefruit opening flash, this one is winter all the way. That vetiver note is toasted and roasted to a deep brown, and boy is it powerful.

    Absolutely agree... And to my nose far better than the original. There's a lot of love for the original, but this one is far smoother to me, and stronger than the others... Great in the winter and I've worn it for December
    In silence, with body and mind still, a depth of understanding may be achieved that is not available to one who languishes at the mercy of life’s relentless chatter.

    Do you think it is a nice fragrance for an 18 years old?
