Reviews of Twilly d'Hermès

I don't often sample womens fragrances, but this was a super popular one, with a signature style, that I had thought about buying for my wife. Wearing it myself, it is definitely feminine. Ginger white floral. Clean, well rounded. It smells like it is great quality. A bit powdery. A little citrus up front. To me this doesn't skew young, doesn't skew old. It seems like a woman in her 20s. Wholesome, and without any trace of skank. If I find a good deal on this I'm gonna pull the trigger. Its nice. Hermes makes good product.

Hermes – Twilly (2017)

A bright, fruity floral with a blast of ginger and bergamot to start, followed by a candy-like tuberose, laid over a chemical sandalwood, slightly redolent of a quiet oud in the background. The fruity effect whispers memories of Angel in the dry down.

Actually, not bad, as one would expect from the least of Hermes. This is a house that for me may not always please, but never disgusts. Hermes maintains a decent standard in its output, such that I would never be put off from trying anything they release.

Twilly has strength, some complexity, and seems to me to be youthfully unisex. A little bit goes a long way, so judicial spritzing is in order. Not great by any means, just respectably decent. Cute bottle.

In the opening I get a mix of ginger and a coumarin undertone that work quite well together. It is a bit fresh and bright, but with a warmer and slightly darker quality also present concurrently.

The tuberose is present on me even in the earliest stages of the drydown and extends its reach well into the base. Prior to these later phases, the tuberose mixes with the coumarin. The tuberose is antoich of the darker side, of moderate intensity and lacks any waxiness on me.

The base is composed of a nonspecific woodsy note, with the tuberose lingering alongside.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

This scent for warmer warmer days in autumn is of a sweetish character that is never too strong, but the ingredients are a bit too generic and too synthetic to convince. Less of aromachemical dominance would have been preferable. Still, quite all right overall. 2.75/5.

O, spicy flower
Tempted by ginger and woods
Come away with me!

Let my tragic love
Be enough for just one night
Before you return

To handmaiden days.
Let shaman's sandalwood spell
Open mind's eyelids

To woody sandstorms
Lives and stories lost to time
By some other tribe

Laughing at our own
For thinking that anything
Belongs to something

Understanding not
Why parts of speech are needed
To come between us.

Should this not suffice
To pry you from your mistress
And into my arms

Then hear ginger's song
Liar to all who listen
Faithless counselor

With sweetest of voice
Knower of men and women
That dime-store siren

Who would please us all
Just to say that she did it.
Let her convince you

To walk spicy coals
On some distant beach with me
In our fragrant dream.

Let her love of life
Infect your own on that beach
Under diff'rent stars.

Bring your silly hat
And all your other girl charms
To find your way back

But watch in wonder
With eyes closed and nose open
As they disappear

From truest story
Where all of us met before
You woke with a smile.

I wanted to like Twilly. I love the concept and the bottle. But it was always a stretch. I’m not a tuberose or a ginger fan. I’d read Twilly was doing something very different with Tuberose. And it was recommended. So I wanted to see if it was one I might end up liking.

I gave it a lot of time and sampling. It turned out it was a perfume I admired, but didn’t fall in love with. I found the Tuberose quite different, a smooth seamless space of cool white floral, but it was a sort of an opaque sail that loomed large, though it was stretched thin. With something that large, there’s no way of ignoring it. And ignore it was what I kind of wanted to do.

I love its playfulness, it’s joie de vivre, its quality construction; everything about it except its tuberose and ginger. So it’s hopeless. I may try it again in the future, because I’d like to have that Charlie Chaplin bottle with its little twilly, but I’m not interested in wearing it now.
