Human metal monolith
Many perfumos know it - grow after quite a few years of perfume collection and knowledge, the urge of spontaneous blind purchases drops drastically. Even with olfactory blockbusters. Even the urge to test often. You just don't have to follow or even start every hype anymore, you have patience and more than enough for three lifetimes in the pipeline. But a brand new Hermes lord fragrance is a house number that is hard to resist even in the most extreme olfactory fatigue and saturation....

"H24" is the first real new men's fragrance from Hermes since the milestone "Terre d'Hermes", since then, the in-house fragrance DNA has been positively "watered down" and consolidated at the same time, has never been rushed or distracted or pandered to the mainstream too much. Great. A house with amazing scents and the clearest language. No matter who is at the helm. Minimal, natural, often gauzy - but always damn stylish and luxurious and with idea, character, soul. Often enough there is truly art behind it. So what can now this "new" for the Herr'n, for which we fans have been waiting for years?

Even if I see him perhaps not quite on "Terre" level, "H24" has nevertheless become a fabulous fragrance, for which Ms. Nagel must not be ashamed in any case. On the contrary: we have to thank her and she can be proud! There, the future of this collabo looks bright. "H24" is a metallic-sweet greenie that can hardly be compared to anything in the perfume game. And I'm talking mass market to deepest niche here. And that's something you have to manage and dare to do! Ms. Nagel succeeds here with a new understated approach to sweetness as well as the "nose color" green that I can hardly hang my hat on. You can't get more signature-worthy than that. Hermes really gives us a gift here once again and solidifies the brand's high reputation. "H24" always goes, looks high-quality blended and uses with the clary sage a core substance, which in this (slightly floral-feminine) form simply knows how to inspire.

Noble and simple. Super linear and the flacon is featureless - but these were also almost the only mild criticisms. The rest is pure Everyday elegance. Green aluminum, barbershop on cloud 7, sweet enough for youth but mature enough for everything after. I have a big grin on my face. Whoever whisks this off to the office now, if that's possible for one or the other before the hype really starts rolling (though I'm not at all sure this understated fine is really made for hype) - is probably impressive king right now, and more than well-advised.

Flacon: me a little too minimal and early-00s
Sillage: discreet despite special sweetness
Durability: 6 hours, prevents lapping

Verdict: simple, clear, synthetic and yet natural, special - quite Hermes! "H24" goes 24/7/365! A class more elegant and better than what similarly large competitors for years one another uncreative and mass-market lame abpausen... "H24" comes very close to a modern classic. Worth buying.

It's all a question of expectations
Hooray - Hermès has once again launched a new fragrance for men. This is definitely exciting news and accordingly, quite a few expectations are tied to this traditional house. Above all, a comparison is immediately drawn with the high-flyer Terre d'Hermès, which is now one of the iconic fragrances and has flushed a lot of thalers into the coffers.

And since there are plenty of it Flanker and Flankesflanker, it is quite legitimate to dare what new and to put on the legs. After all, TdH is not discontinued, but only the portfolio expanded. And anyone who is a little bit involved with fragrance houses or brands will know that there is a certain core competence behind it. At Hermès, which is also one of the big players like Chanel, Dior (belongs to LVMH), YSL (belongs to Kering S.A.), Guerlain (LVMH) and Prada and Armani (licensing agreement with L'Oreal), which press H24 with great advertising effort in the market, the core competence is rather found in the fresher fragrances.

A gourmandigen seducer will hardly anyone expect from this brand - at least for the mainstream area. The m. E. quite appealingly made commercial promises a modern innovative fragrance with urban as well as natural and thus slightly contradictory features with some freshness character. At least that's how I would interpret the clip. In the way related to TdH and relatively suitable for the brand or Corparte Identity and thanks to refillable bottle and cardboard box made of recycled material quite in the sign of sustainability.

But let's finally get to the fragrance. H24 is independent enough that I can not spontaneously think of a fragrance twin or similarities to other mainstreamers. It comes in its relatively linear way mercilessly green, a little floral and above all spicy, with a lot of said classic clary sage, a hint of tart to delicately acidic notes and if you press your nose (which you really shouldn't) to the sprayed back of your hand, a few scattered almost sweet-syrupy fruit impressions come across. In between, a mixture of metallic coolness and woody warmth with synthetic borrowings, which one can tolerate, however, without them chumming or cheap.
And no, H24 does not stand for 24 hours of durability or 24 meters of semicircular projection. There this eau de toilette behaves to the disappointment of some kids quite normal.

So H24 isn't an internal pretender to the throne, copying TdH or getting in the way, but it's also not a direct competitor to Sauvage, even if they'd love to match its sales numbers. But it definitely shows more edge than Bleu de Chanel or Y by YSL, though I have my doubts it can reach the latter's status. Don't begrudge him, yes I definitely would.

In any case, my expectations were met, because H24 embodies a modern fragrance with traditional charm. In addition, he fits perfectly into the portfolio of Hermès and to the seasons of spring, summer and possibly still autumn.

For the winter I would probably prefer something from the house of Prada, because cozy fragrances for the cold season ... that can the - and that would be my expectation towards them.

Lockdown.Scent.Question.Marks.
The 70s and 80s were characterized by rich, mossy, heavy, room-filling, testosterone-laden incisive fragrances like "Azzaro pour homme", "Antaeus", "Patou pour homme", "Quorum", to name a few. A little later, "Boss No. 1" and "Zino" were added. Unisex didn't really exist yet. Those were still the signature scents of Darth Vader, Gordon Gecko and the Terminator. What we nowadays call classics and still so often like to wear.

In the mid/late 80s, the olfactory landscape changed radically. From heavy and mossy became aquatic and fresh. A change can not be more crass. Starting with "Green Irish Tweed" and three years later with "Cool Water" and "New West" the refreshment wave washed over us. The '90s saw the arrival of "L'eau d'Issey pour homme," Calvin Klein's unisex masterpiece "CK One," Kenzo's "Pour homme" and Giorgio Armani's disco sling "Acqua di Gio." All of which we now call modern classics, and some of which we still love to wear.

In the mid / late 90s and early new millennium, things changed again. It became cloying. "Le male". Jean Paul Gaultier. In the 00s still came "One Million" and "Spicebomb". The high-end offshoots of this style go by the name of "Dior Homme". Someone also suddenly discovered a funny resin from the eaglewood tree and leather was also up-to-date again, despite the vegan trend.

And what happened from the early 10s? Right. The so-often-maligned shower gel fragrances. "Aventus", "Bleu de Chanel", "Sauvage" and all their consorts, imitators and copycats. And despite their "shortcomings", they continue to enjoy great popularity all over the world. They are kept fresh across the board and are wearable in every season and for every occasion. The egg-laying Wollmichsau?

Maybe not yet?! Because what is in store for us in the new decade? Dior has begun with it in the last year. The new "Dior Homme". Fresh without real citricity. Floating soft woodiness. One hardly suspects sillage because it is difficult to perceive it oneself. But perceived by others, it is enormous. Similar to Molecule No. 1. just molecular.

As you can see, many things are constantly changing in life. That is natural law and that is also good.

When Hermès launches a new men's fragrance, the anticipation is huge for me. "Terre d'Hermès" is one of my absolute favorite fragrances for a desert island. And "Voyage d'Hermès" one of the underrated fragrances.

H24 is incredibly soft and fresh in all its phases. Freshness without recognizable citrus. Slightly green without associations of grasses or woods. Floral, but not a bouquet in a vase. When Pepper 81 writes below that the fragrance reminds her of the old "Higher" by Dior, I can only agree 100%. H24 is simply excellently balanced and balanced.

The durability is very good. More than eight hours with me. About the sillage I can not say much. I suspect, however, that this is also not from bad parents (if others perceive them at one).

What remains? Well, I think that the H24 is another fragrance of a new category, or rather, a new way of doing things. Dior has led the way. And I bet my collection that Chanel will go for the same make with their new men's fragrance. And everyone else will then follow suit. And no, this is not the end of the world. It's the march of time and there's no stopping it. And of course it won't please those who are more into oriental and sweet scents.

Oh yes, it would be interesting to know what these fragrances will be called. Molecular Freshies? (is anyway everything gedenglished).

Greeting

Your Profumorist

PS: I can only recommend the film "Nose" about Francois Demanchy and Dior to everyone here. Amazingly objectively held and just beautifully staged.

A greenhorn for all days
So here it is: Christine Nagel's first (non-flanker) fragrance for men as in-house perfumer at Hermès. The expectations were - are and remain - high. Terre d'Hermès sends its regards. There are easier tasks than to follow in Jean-Claude Ellenas footsteps.

In view of the forecast that in the next few days certainly still numerous comments on the H24 on Parfumo will rain down, I will be brief in the following and would like to go only to selected aspects.

Yes, it is, as announced, a quite transparent Grünling, which creates an impression of freshness without citricity. A light, increasingly gentle fragrance, fleeting, quiet, not intrusive. For those afraid of clary sage, let me tell you: nothing smells harsh here. Yes, this particular sage is distinct and makes the scent soft and "not completely unsweet" in my opinion, although the scent has absolutely nothing to do with sweetness or even sugary sweetness. Salbeidüfte create this "not completely unsweet" impression with me (Kamilledüfte by the way idiosyncratically also).

My fragrance impression is clearly different between "getetest on paper" and "tested on the skin", although this rarely happens with me. On paper, the individual components are more clearly outlined, but also clings to the first seconds a strange Haribo Colorado-white-pineapple impression, which quickly dissipates (a happiness) and gives way to a "modern green" without any attachment to traditionalism. Green, but not brittle. Tart, but not very tart. Vegetation, but not a forest. It reminds me a bit of the smell of the green of cut flowers after they've been in the vase for a while - but without any rot! In fact, I soon have the promised ironing steam association as well, but would find the attribute "metallic" exaggerated in this regard. Rather "unmoschusartig fluffy", and that in masculine.

The further course is quite linear, the fragrance thereby as addressed always quiet, discreet, serious. H24: one for 24/7.

H24 enters a heavy legacy and probably does not represent another milestone. Nevertheless, it seems to me even more portable than the "Terre", since its high Iso-E-Super proportion already with few splashes sometimes annoys me a little.

So: no work of art, but a wearable fragrance for every day, kept a little "younger" than "Terre", but far from synthetic ingratiation to the middle of the mainstream with quickly circulating interchangeable goods. Worth a test!

Nature meets modernity
Rarely has one been able to observe such high hopes for a good new designer men's fragrance as with Hermès' H24. The reasons for this are obvious: on the one hand, the brand does not launch one fragrance after the other, but rather does so with deliberation; on the other hand, Hermès does not orient itself to trends and has, after all, already had a great success with Terre d'Hermès in 2006, which continues to this day.

Christine Nagel's creation is far from the 'blue' and ambroxan-heavy perfumes or the sweet and spicy gourmands and is oriented towards the very contemporary themes of nature and sustainability (*), while the brand remains true to itself.

(* Anyway, the perfumer talks about this in the interview:
https://bellevue.nzz.ch/mode-beauty/hermes-neuer-herrenduft-h24-christine-nagel-im-interview-ld.1598832)

A little polarizes H24 already once - at least one gets this impression, if one reads the different perceptions and evaluations here. More often fell also already the term 'Fougère', which I personally do not consider applicable, because for me lavender and coumarin are missing. Instead, I would rather speak of a fruity chypre-like fragrance.

The top note I do not like so well, because although initially a fresh hint of grapefruit is to be guessed, I have gradually mainly the association with pear (which I neither smell, nor like to eat) and even to banana I feel very slightly reminded. Thus, a certain fruity sweetness resonates in the background, which bothers me, but is not on the level of many other designer fragrances. Right from the start, the two essentials of H24 are also present: sage brings a pleasant, realistic herbaceousness, and in the base there is a woody note that, although noticeably synthetic, has been used so skilfully that the scent is actually reminiscent of freshly ironed laundry and the iron still hot. Something metallic is thus already present, but comes in my opinion not stabbing therefore.

Thus, nature and modernity combine in a perfume that could well have been declared as unisex. By the herb-green and the metallic facet but the classic-masculine part prevails. All the individual notes/chords seem quite familiar to me, but in total H24 already has a high degree of independence. Due to the top note, I feel the overall composition is not quite as coherent and with four sprays, the fragrance not only lingered very steadily on my skin, but also projected for quite a long time. So airy and discreet, as some perceive him, he is not.

Even if H24 is not quite to my taste, I would be happy if with him a new trend, towards fresh, green, less sweet and especially more sustainable fragrances would begin.

Very nice fresh scent, feels like a modern twist on an older herbal theme, I find this scent a paradox - both energizing and relaxing!

Very clean scent, office friendly. H24 is green, fresh, floral and a bit woody in the drydown. The performance is awful on my skin.

My 3rd Hermès fragrance besides BelAmi Vetiver and Equipage G which I both love. H24 is a big mistake. What a mess this is.
