Although masculine in many regards, Terre D’Hermès (Hermès 2006) is also quite universal and ultimately a chic, tasteful fragrance. It’s bold but not brash, crisp but not uptight and clean without being at all shrill or abrasive. It’s a lovely blending of vetiver, cedar and citrus. And I think the warmth of benzoin and patchouli make the fragrance a great fit for day into night.
Top notes: orange and lemon. Middle notes: pelargonium and pepper. Base notes: vetiver, cedar, patchouli and benzoin.
