How I imagine sunlight might smell
There’s a distinctive take on orange that makes this one stand out. Dry, almost burnt. Slightly vegetal and earthy. Prickly pepperiness. Never juicy or sweet. Reminds me of hot and dry days in southern Europe when you can literally smell the heath as the sun ”toasts” the earth and this results in a evaporation of compounds into the atmosphere.

The scent starts out with an initial blast of bright citrus that’s present for a fleeting moment. The Eau fraiche flanker takes this theme further whereas the EDT quickly reveals its earthy, dry and slightly spicy facet with flintstone, vetiver and pepper. This then morphs into a dry woody vetiver drydown that can be both warming or somewhat cold earthy depending on which facet you happen to catch. Masterfully blended. The notes melt into each other, creating a olfactory texture rather than a scent.

Terre may appear polarizing and it is to a degree. It’s not offending like some of the past’s powerhouses nor is it a ”beast mode” scent. It is, however, one of those fragrances that’s on the verge of the wearer having to be able to carrry it. This is due to the earthiness and dry woodiness that appear mature and somewhat serious. Nonetheless, a timeless and unique creation from Ellena and the house of Hermes.

Clásico atemporal
La primera vez que probé este perfume, me lo mostró una dependienta y le dije que ese aroma no era para mi.. (.. iluso!)...

Posteriormente un día en un concesionario de coches el vendedor desprendía un aroma fabuloso, masculino, maduro, elegante... Y pude divisar que en su escritorio había una caja de Terre d'hermes...

Tiempo después un día llegando a mi trabajo, abrí la puerta del portal y aunque no había nadie, el aroma que llenaba el ambiente ya no me resultaba desconocido. Un olor exquisito a naranja, vetiver, maderas....Era el mismo que le había olido al comercial del concesionario, aquel que en un principio absurdamente había rechazado. Definitivamente lo necesitaba. .

Lo considero un perfume masculino, con clase, duradero, con proyección, y que te hace sentir seguro. Cuando lo usas sabes que no te equivocaste.

Sinceramente me gusta para todo el año y toda ocasión. Lo conservaría el resto de mi vida.

What Does Gunpowder Smell Like?
Just to clarify, there is the smell of gunpowder, then there is the smell of gun smoke. Black powder, from the old days, has only a tiny smell, mostly charcoal notes. The black powder smoke is thick and clear and tastes of steam and sulfur, with a hint of saltpetre urine. Smokeless powder has a complex medicinal and chemical odour. The fumes from the spent smokeless powder, as others have said, smell and taste a bit like fireworks, with a distinct spicy aroma. The mercury fulminate in the primer contributes a metallic zing to the overall effect. The powder itself smells a little sulphurous and metallic, mostly sulfur. When burned or fired with a pistol, it produces a vast cloud of smoke, including sulfur dioxide and other gases, which distinctly smell like rotten eggs. And finally, flint was used to ignite gunpowder in firearms until the early 19th century. Flint alone is not enough, however: flint is used to strike pyrite, which will emit sparks, as the energy of the blow is converted into heat energy.
That said, while it may seem strange to you, some people like the smell of burnt gunpowder in the morning, especially from a classic revolver. If you are among them, you might probably like Terre d’Hermès, which does not smell anything easily identifiable in nature but suggests a dream evoked by the perfumer’s imagination. I am a pacifist, I have no weapons and have never seen one, but if the smell of gunpowder is somewhat similar to Terre, then I like it. Since the release of the original, Hermès has expanded the line to include several flankers, including Terre d’Hermès Parfum, Terre d’Hermès Cologne, etc. However, the original remains something extraordinary. Very cute and classy! I always get a lot of compliments from this perfume!

As an intensely masculine yet heady mix of strong dirty citrus fruits, which are mainly orange and grapefruit, flint for a mineral touch, woody cedar and earthy vetiver in the air, there is a balance in the scent that to this day remains decidedly modern. It has an airy feel in the open air, the smell of warm skin, and a kind of clean finish that doesn’t evoke laundry soap. When I say dirty and earthy, you might think it doesn’t sound very attractive, but it is. It is a truly manly, yet modern smell. Get masculinity without that strong old-school musky type of scent. Despite being a mineral, woody and spicy fragrance, Terre d’Hermès presents a rich blend of harmonious notes from different families. While being an overall warm fragrance, it also features many fresh undertones that offer a carefree element against the heavy, sweet texture. It provides a seamless transition through a crescendo of bright notes, starting with sweet and sour grapefruit and crunchy orange in the head. There is already a bit of an earthy tinge to the background. The opening is extraordinarily fresh but not without substance with these surprising and rich citrus notes, bitter and sweet at the same time. It differs slightly from other medium citrus colognes as the citrus note smells like the white part of the peel, which is spicier and slightly acidic.

The airy opening of the Hesperides, which glisten like crystals set in white marble, leads to crunchy pepper and sweet geranium, and perhaps a little benzoin. In moments, pink peppercorns emerge and interact with citrus notes to create a complex cocktail full of sugary fruit. The pepper note is much more evident in the sillage than in the close scent of the fragrance. The added floral aromas of geranium offer a pleasant sweetness to its structure, so it is not overly bitter. There is warm earth, warm rocks, wood and a brief hint of green. After about an hour, there is the hint of smoky and dusty gunpowder. The mineral powder binds the entire composition, suspending the light and preserving the sensation of being dazzled by the sun.

Finally, it reveals fresh cedar in the base along with oakmoss, nutty vetiver, resinous benzoin and earthy patchouli. None of the elements takes the solo or dominates the final part of the composition. They play more of a supportive role in recreating the scent of fresh earth. The base is balsamic and slightly bitter with a chalky mineral or flint finish. A warm, nutty vetiver interacts with manly, earthy patchouli while benzoin creates a sweet touch of bitter, aromatic vanilla. Oakmoss eventually adds its earthy, woody and slightly leathery note. There are still subtle hints of grapefruit and pepper, which add an element of freshness to the final base. The open-air feeling remains on the skin until it dissolves completely in several hours.

Overall, it is a deeply resinous and harmonious composition, which at the same time calms and excites. Through its deep journey of notes, you could easily imagine the ripe fruit, dry earth and dusty rocks under a scorching sun. While the sillage is quite tight and leaves only a faint trail, the projection performs remarkably well when the wearer is static. When it comes to performance, it offers excellent longevity with durability that will last throughout the working day. I prefer it during the milder months of mid-seasons, and I wear it to the office and evenings out, but I smelled it in a restaurant, on a cruel hot summer evening, on a handsome man, and it was so perfect for that event, so fresh, mineral, reenergized. So, you can choose any day, any time, any occasion, and Terre d’Hermès will probably work great. Whether you’re looking for something to wear to the office, a night out, a day out on the town, it works for any occasion. A contemporary and resolutely elegant classic fragrance, Terre d’Hermès is both a creator and an exception to the rules. Its composition is unique compared to today’s trends despite being an already mature and established fragrance. Finally, every time I smell Terre d’Hermès I fondly remember the year I wore it almost exclusively, as a signature.

I base the review on an original decant I have owned since 2010.

Salto Hermes
Crushed under the flint, colorful pepper and rose geraniums.
Thundering water, 1000 meters until it falls from the table mountains of Venezuela's Gran Sabana.
The Salto Angel , the Angel's fall is the highest waterfall.
In the helicopter you can smell the foggy air.

In small camps at the foot of the mesas , in this humid , mosquito infested muggy air , it smells like earth ,
not our European forest soil.
It smells of woody earth, of stones being cooked over.
It gets sweaty.
It's punishing when you stay a few days in the jungle.
Terre d'Hermès I compare to the environment.
Woody, smelling of stones is the base.
The pepper blends with the fruits underneath.
Striking, masculine , almost austere.
Spicy , strange , full of life.
As it progresses warmer , patchouli is perceptible.
Terre d'Hermès is thereby very well durable, the sillage sufficient .
I would recommend not to wear the fragrance in the tent or these small huts in the rainforest, he could provoke.
On the skin good 6-8 hours
On clothes with me even the next day to smell.
I like Terre d'Hermès
I like Gran Sabana
I like Salto Angel
For me Salto Hermès

Hermès always takes me back to South America, to Venezuela

Thank you

Musty Orange
When I opened the package, I thought: okay not bad. Neither intrusive, nor removed from my idea I had of this fragrance. What I smell out with my untrained nose, is an earthy, green, slightly woody orange.

And so I've been applying and testing the scent on and off for the past few days.

It was a classic blind buy, thought with the fragrance you could not go wrong, as it was with other classics so far.
But not so with this fragrance. Destofter I smelled him, the older I felt. He just reminded me more and more of old musty laundry that has been vegetating in the closet for decades. So yet nothing for me...

Okay it is perhaps a bit overstated, but for me, early 20s, this fragrance just seems too "old-fashioned", rather like an old men's fragrance, so I will sell it again.

Terre D'Hermes EDT vs. EDP - and the winner is...
My wife gave me Terre D'Hermes for my birthday a few years ago. At first I could not do much with this for me complex fragrance. On the second sniff, however, I got to know and love the subtleties. Since a few years later a flanker in the form of a perfume Terre d'Hermès Parfum came out, I let these two opponents get into the ring for a sporty comparison. Let's get ready to rumble!

Fragrance EDT (7.5/10) vs. EDP (7.5/10):
The EDT opens with the gong with a purposeful freshness kick of citrus and oranges and mercilessly sets the EDP in the opening. The EDP for its part strikes back mercilessly with an overall rounded, slightly sweeter course and distributes liver hooks and the EDT. In the drydown, both opponents are in the clutch. Tie.

SILLAGE EDT (7/10) vs. EDP (7/10):
Both opponents could work here more on your external effect, which is very equal and moderate. Both but also ideal for the office. Draw.

DURABILITY EDT (7/10) vs. EDP (7/10):
Although the EDP is clearly younger than the old master the EDT, it has no more condition on my skin. Draw.

CONCLUSION...and the winner is:
The Eau de Toilette (EDT). Why The challenging, younger EDP can indeed keep up in the area of fragrance, sillage and durability with the old master, but is also only equal. If the scores are tied, the champion simply has a bonus with the judges, especially since it costs about 30% less. Buy the EDT!

P.S.: If you like this review halt, I would be very happy about a cup and / or a *helpful*!

Long live the king
To simplify the things, one of the best fragrances ever created. Masculine, bold, in your face freshness & stingy.
Somehow green/herbaceous, somehow metallic. The vetiver accord mixed with the bitter grapefruit creates a wonderful aroma that stays with you for a long time. The performance is still great nowadays (for me) and I feel it around 8 hours maybe a bit more sometimes with a noticeable sillage in the first few hours. Definitely, a fragrance that will easily get noticed. Great for special days in your life or simply wear it whenever you feel the need to. Mature men only, not for a teenager in any case.
One of the fragrances that I have to keep for the rest of my life !

Overall : 8.6/10

Very helpful Review    14  
Sooooo round!
Please don't ask for analysis here (you'll find it in many of the previous reviews)! The strength of fragrances I love is that I don't start dissecting and analyzing individual components, but that they are coherent for me from front to back. Here, it's the perfect interplay of a citrusy start to a deliciously played around dusty dry vetiver component. In fact, it's one of the few scents where I've ever immediately thought, "Oh, someone really put some thought into the scent progression and the interplay of the components." The "earth" theme - sun-drenched, spicy, peppered with the citrusy plants that sprout from it - is so wonderfully captured here, though at the same time I could understand if some found it less than spectacular. I've usually found such rounded scents in the majority of Guerlain

Summer rain under orange trees
The first drops fell sporadically on the dry and cracked clay. Where they splashed they left dark stains on the dusty red ground. A gust of cool wind brushed beneath the leaves of the old, gnarled orange tree, making them rustle soothingly in its wake and cooling the warm summer air noticeably. Where the warm, thick air of the day was displaced by the shower, the clarifying scent of cool rain and damp earth pushed its way to the fore, mingling with the delightfully tart aroma of the thick-skinned oranges that hung plump from the branches. The scent of wood, which emanated from the ancient tree, was also distinct now, and if one concentrated a little, one could even detect the mineral notes of the damp rocks. As quickly as the rain started, the more abruptly it ebbed away. And while the dark clouds cleared a little, the first rays of sunshine pushed through the cloud cover again.

Fin.

Fred Flintstone & the parched earth in the morning dew
Terre d'Hermes is according to my nose at first a very dry fragrance that initially shows no obvious, great transformation. The course is very slow, flowing
First, the fragrance starts with a very concise, prominent, charakeristic flint note. Subsequently, a very dry, rough, shrubby vetiver comes to the fore that does not want to let any gimmicks - therefore, the statement of Scharlih82's review The perfect office fragrance - "the colleague, where you take a quick breath and check whether everything sits before you knock on his [r] door" fully applies.
Although one may seem a little strict with it, with the time something friendlier resonates with. It seems as if the morning dew comes to the fragrance, which gives the vetiver some moisture and steers it in a less shrubby, towards a woody / herbaceous direction. In this, the vetiver is probably supported by the cedar. In addition, an extremely subliminal acidity and effervescence comes through the grapefruit and orange in alternation added.
Pepper I could perceive so far none.
All in all, I would describe it by the following: Everything is dry as dust and the earth forms cracks, the bushes are scrawny and bare. The landscape is barren. It must have gotten dark and a cool down seems near. The morning dew seems to be finally providing some moisture. The vegitation craves water. Absorbing any moisture to secrete some scent. But it is too little. From somewhere come the first drops. A little cooling is to be expected.

The fragrance is quite suitable as a signature and is exceedingly suitable for the office. He is extremely distinctive and somewhat peculiar. Nevertheless, he should at least get the chance to be tested - the trip to the drought is worth it all.
He is definitely wearable at any time of year, and even if age is always relative, from about 30 he should fit many. Although I am significantly younger, some days I just feel like TdH. The durability are with me easily 10h. In combination with jeans and hoodie, however, I can not imagine him with the best will in the world.
Highly recommended for managers who do not want to be constantly addressed by employees and rather by a rather hierarchical management style (which is absolutely not meant in a judgmental way) rather want to have their peace and especially before the first coffee by nothing behelligt want.
