    EDT was fleeting and didn’t grab my interest, I haven’t tried the EDP reviews have said it’s better though.

    It smells nice but not very exciting

    Its basically a cardamom heavy, traditional, boring eau de cologne with the usual poor performance eau de colognes have. A massive misfire by Hermes.

    It isn’t loud enough, it doesn’t last enough and girls don’t love it enough. It walks against the formula of “success”.

    It's pretty mediocre despite having mega-fancy packaging.

    It's like V-8. You try it and say "damn that's good, I want it every day forever!"

    A week later you want the limited edition Coke coffee drink instead.

    It's not something that I like enough to want to reach for but it's alright.

    Like it but performance is disappointing, much prefer the EDT.

    The bottle annoys me a little but wouldn't be a reason not to buy.

    I love it, too. I took a sample on a summer beach vacation where I wore it several days in a row. I promptly bought a bottle after I got home.

    I own a travel spray...I wear it on ocassion in the summer and always like it when I do. Not a favourite, but glad I own a bottle.

    The EdP is pleasant and fleeting, like much of Hermes scents. I get better longevity out of their EdC line than Voyage EdP.

    Personally speaking, liking it enough to consider not just an imminent wardrobe addition but also a fairly imminent or at least foreseeable present idea for family and friends into the notes it quite successfully, amply and tastefully covers

    I like it, but... it strikes me as being a nondescript Ellena creation of citrus, wood and spices. If I want that, I'll go for Declaration, which is available much cheaper. Additionally, since Voyage gets marketed and sold alongside Terre as a seemingly comparable scent (i.e. in Sephora), it can't stack up to its superstar sibling. Every time I sample it, I think "this is nice, I should get a bottle." But I never follow through, there's always something better that I get instead.

    I own both the EDT and EDP and enjoy them quite a bit.
