Eau d'Hermès by Hermès
What Does Eau d'Hermès Smell Like
Eau d'Hermès by Hermès has a layered scent profile that unfolds gradually. At first whiff, you get an immediate hit of the refreshing and crisp bergamot, mingling subtly with the slightly invigorating spice of cinnamon and cardamom. There's also a faint green hint of clover and an aromatic lavender note that adds a relaxing and pure freshness.
As the perfume evolves, the scent deepens into a sweetness with a soft vanilla tone, coupled with the subtle floral notes of geranium. There's a rich, almost edible aroma from the tonka bean that marries well with a light whisper of jasmine, painting a picture of a vibrant, blooming garden.
The real magic of Eau d'Hermès, though, lies in its base. The scent matures into this intriguing leathery note that's distinct but not overpowering. It's subtly underscored by the woody tones of birch, sandalwood, and cedar, which lend an earthy, grounded feel to the mix. The recurring tonka bean adds a touch of sweetness to the base, rounding off the fragrance perfectly.
Eau d'Hermès is a dynamic scent journey, starting off spicy and citrusy, deepening into a sweet floral heart, before concluding on a robust, leathery and woody base.
Review of Eau d'Hermès
Eau d'Hermès by Hermès is a distinct unisex perfume with a character that leans more towards the masculine side. Its formulation, released in 1951, has stood the test of time with a blend of notes that evoke a robust, slightly rugged personality. The scent is dominantly spicy and animalistic, lending it an untamed, raw allure. This is softened by a leathery undertone that adds a touch of sophistication to the overall aroma. The citrus and woody notes add a refreshing twist making it an ideal choice for spring and fall seasons.
Despite its strong character, the perfume is not overpowering. It has a modest yet noticeable presence which makes it a good option for both leisure activities and evening events. It can even serve as a bold choice for daytime wear. On the value front, it offers a satisfactory return on investment, making it a worthwhile addition to your perfume collection.
