    Default You favorite Hermes fragrance and why?

    What is your favorite Hermes fragrance and why?

    Mine is Equipage because I find it the easiest to wear and I consider it one of the greatest male fragrances I've ever smelled.

    BelAmi (original) for its smell and performance on me.

    Terre d' Hermes - I like many Hermes fragrances, but TdH has been the accessible favorite.

    Voyage, it works in all weathers, is perfect for traveling, can be shared, and truly fresh and appealing.

    Vetiver Tonka. It’s a very smooth vetiver that performs very well for me.

    TDH it is super versatile and smells amazing, to me the best part is it comes in two versions to experience it and both are EPIC.

    Bel Ami--it is an amazing fragrance. Equipage comes second. Then Vert Orange and Eau d'Hermes and that is it for me, from that house.

    Eau de Merveilles. Nothing else like it on the market I think.

    Would be between Equipage or Rocabar.

    Love both, but I'd choose Rocabar as my favorite because nothing smells quite like it. Love the opening......

    I haven't tried the original Bel Ami (although I did blind buy Puredistance M because of the number of people comparing it with vintage Bel Ami). The Hermes I have tried are TdH, Equipage Geranium, Ambre Narguile and Bel Ami Vetiver.

    BAV is not only my favourite Hermes scent, it's my favourite and most worn scent overall, although it hasn't seen much use in the last few weeks with the hot weather here. Why do I like it? It's long lasting, sophisticated, masculine and smells absolutely fantastic. I actually thought it was horrible the first time I sniffed it, but it rapidly grew on me.

    Concentré de Orange Verte has always been my favourite. It's gentle but tenacious and comforting, I find. Also very versatile. A very close second would be Bel Ami.

    Not many Eau De Hermes fan here.
    I am surprised.
    Mine is Equipage . The reformulated modern version is good enough.
    They do a better job with reforms than most other houses.

    I quite like the new Galop. Strange and a little dirty.
    And then some of the vintage ones (Bel Ami, Equipage, Eau d'Hermes)

    Bel Ami first, then Equipage and Eau d'Hermes.

    I like Bel Ami for being rich and alluring, a little sweet, a little dark. I like Equipage for smelling classic - restrained, but a nice, polite, mossy leather. I like Eau d'Hermes for having an almost natural body smell, but in a way that's not overdone and that makes the development interesting.

    ....but with also a contrarian shout-out to Voyage, which I think is criminally underrated.

    I like Bel Ami Vetiver and Equipage Geranium on my husband. Cuir d'Ange, Vetiver Tonka and and Eau de Narcisse Bleu are also great unisex scents.

    Eau de Neroli Dore I think

    Also in the running:

    Eau de Mandarine Ambre
    Un Jardin Sur Le Nil
    Vetiver Tonka
    Elixir des Merveilles
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    Of the ones I've smelled it's Eau de Gentiane Blanche. It's charmingly weird, unusual yet wearable, performs well, available in 200ml, widely available, doesn't break the bank, etc., etc.
    Second comes Terre Parfum (similar reasons), third Bel Ami (pure greatness), fourth Eau de Merveilles (so wonderful smelling on my ladyfriend).

    Original Bel Ami. The first one in the 80's is dark, slightly bitter resins and a Leather to die for. In it you will find the Seeds of Petroleum present in Dior Fahrenheit.
    My first bottle of BA was from 1992 and reform brought a bit of brightness and a Cumin heart.I love it just as much.
    A 2002 Eau d'Hermes competes for the title with it's wonderful Cumin dose and Synthetic Civet.
    Up until 2014 Bel Ami remains subjectively my favourite of Contemporary Hermes.
    Scarcity is an illusion. Unlearn it.

    Toss up between TDH and Voyage Parfum.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
