What do they smell like?
Terre d'Hermes is a unisex fragrance that was created for HERMÈS by Jean-Claude Ellena.
The Parfum is the most concentrated formulation and has the strongest HERMÈS signature accord of orange blossom, neroli, and jasmine. It also has a beautiful ambergris note that gives it a warm, spicy, oceanic smell.
The EDT is lighter and brighter than the Parfum. It has less of the ambergris note and more of the citrusy notes.
Personally, we prefer the EDP because of the stronger scent, but all both formulas are amazing.
How long do they last?
HERMÈS Terre d'Hermes is a timeless fragrance that has remained popular since its release over ten years ago.
It is available in two formulations: Eau de Toilette and Parfum.
The Parfum is the strongest concentration and therefore lasts the longest on the skin, typically around 9 hours.
The Eau de Toilette formulation is the weakest concentration but also the most affordable; it typically lasts for 4-5 hours on the skin.
Both formulations are considered long-lasting fragrances, and will leave you smelling great all day long.
Which is the most popular?
The EDT was the original formulation of the fragrance, and the most popular formulation in the Terre d'Hermes line-up.This was followed by the Parfum formulation which was released later.
When it comes to successful fragrance launches, it is usually the first formulation of the scent that remains the most popular.
Examples of other fragrances where the EDT is the most popular include Dior Sauvage EDT, and Versace Eros EDT.
The EDT is lighter and more refreshing, making it ideal for summer wear.
The Parfum is the most concentrated and longest-lasting of the three, making it ideal for special occasions.
No matter which formulation you choose, HERMÈS Terre d'Hermes is sure to keep you smelling great all day long.
As anyone who's interested in fragrance knows, HERMÈS Terre d'Hermes is one of the most popular scents on the market.
Interestingly, it seems that both the EDT and Parfum formulation have their own devoted following.
Some people prefer the deeper, more intense scent of the Parfum, while others find the lighter Eau de Toilette to be more refreshing.
Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference. But if you're looking for a general consensus, it seems that the Eau de Toilette is currently the most popular formulation of HERMÈS Terre d'Hermes.
