Eau de Cologne
Hermès made Eau de Colognes for all who love their scents subtle. Due to the small amount of oil in them, Eau de Colognes are ideal for everyday wear, any season, any occasion. If this is the type of fragrance you are looking for, any of the Eau de Cologne collection by Hermès is worth a try.
