Because Fattan is very similar to the two Hermes fragrances, a comparison test is a must. Because this Arab has a lot to offer. But first my small prehistory and then the facts :)
Terre d'Hermès EDT is known to be a very popular elixir, but I could never get really warm with it. I had it once in 2016, but after about four weeks I was already moving out: I lacked the freshness and found it simply too musty. Two years later I noticed the perfume all the more, which seemed to me to be a little fresher and less musty. But I was not completely convinced by it. So I also forgot the EDP for the time being ...
Then, at the end of last year, I happened to notice Fattan, and I started working on this fragrance again, including the two Hermès candidates. And because Fattan was said to be more citric, I finally dared to make a blind purchase, because its price is more likely to correspond to a larger bottling;)
No sooner said than done. And what can I say? He's good He's really good. So you might be interested in a comparative test of Hermès scents.
Here first the official ratings:
TdH EDT---8.2----7.6----8.2----50€ / 50ml (base75)
TdH EDP---8.5----8.0----8.6----48€ / 50ml
Fattan-------8.3----7.8----8.3----15€ / 50ml
Here are my personal impressions and evaluations, without going too much into the individual fragrance details:
TdH EDT :
It starts with a somewhat artificial citric, which unfortunately quickly becomes a bit annoying for me. And in the next hour, unfortunately, a note increasingly asserts itself, which in the mix with the top note reminds me of the often used dull black currant (e.g. in Aventus-Dupes), which I hardly like anymore, but which is obviously appreciated by many users. Later on, an earthy woody note is added, which somehow also seems a bit musty and musty, on which the slightly fermented overripe orange dances, but which fades increasingly after about four hours. In short: The whole thing reminds me too much of light peat. Neither is the top note really fresh and present, nor could the depth of the fragrance reach me. Nevertheless, this Hermès is at least convincing with its 9-10 hours of shelf life and a good sillage (applied with two rich sprays on the neck left/right at all three fragrances). I could never really understand the success of the TDH, but besides the big fan community it has a no less big abutment ;-)
TdH EDP :
The perfume brings a fresher citric note from the start, which is also more persistent, more transparent and less musty than EDT (EDP more grapefruit, EDT more orange). Overall, the fragrance appears more differentiated, deeper and not quite as "greasy" and peaty as the EDT. Nevertheless: Peat is peat, even if it is darker in EDP and appears a little "cleaner". Its course: After about an hour, the grapefruit-orange combo recedes a bit and a balanced mixture of citric, light spice, wood and a little bit of earth appears, which slowly becomes a bit tart. After about 3 hours the sillage decreases significantly, after 5 hours it decreases again (now a good 60% of the start), but with a shelf life of 12+ hours the perfume is much better than the EDT. And also the Sillage is still well perceptible. These are top values and also overall I like the EDP much better than the EDT.
... is an outrageously good copy of the TdH EDP. However, Fattan starts for about 5 minutes with a heavy mix, as if all notes would explode and have to find each other first, which is also the case after 10-15 minutes. Then you smell a deep citric, which fortunately reminds less of a synthetic orange than much more of strong bergamot. At the same time it is underlaid with a soft, dark, slightly acidic wood. Fattan has a lot of power and the fragrance appears masculine, very present and definitely valuable, although peat is also present. From the second hour on the Arab has slowly grooved in and he is getting better and better as the citric gains a little more. After about 4 hours he is very similar to the TdH EDP and is only a little harsher. It is dominated by his masculine citric, underlined by a light spice and a full wood-earthy darkness. Fattan remains transparent and clear over the hours, and its peat plays to a harmonious level. As with EDP, unlike EDT, his citric can also hold up well over the entire fragrance, and after about 7 hours the scent becomes a little more acidic and earthy, so I suspect vetiver in him too, possibly supported by a touch of oakmoss. However, I wouldn't give Fattan as much green as the diagram shows with 15% at the moment. It is too similar to EDP for that. With a shelf life of 10-12 hours it is also in the top range, whereby its sillage is about 10% stronger than that of the EDP, at times even 20%
First my personal ratings:
TdH EDT---6.5----6.5----8.0----50€ / 50ml (base75)
TdH EDP---7,5----7.2----9.0----48€ / 50ml
Fattan-------7,5----7.8----8.5----15€ / 50ml
Even though my personal taste marks all three fragrances somewhat lower, I find the average rating of the community to be quite consistent (see above). Fattan is rated 8.3 by 55 users, which is statistically relevant. It looks a bit darker and deeper than the TdH EDP, but is very similar to it - more so than the EDT. Also this is currently seen by the community:
Fattan similarity to the fragrance twins
TdH EDP 
TdH EDT  = 68%
Although the first five minutes of Fattan may seem a bit pungent and give the impression of something synthetic, this is rightly not to be found in the diagram. Fattan is a valuable fragrance, very potent and expressive, with a high pithiness and masculine character, which need not hide behind the Hermes representatives. It's rather impudent to shamelessly copy this one, but my case is this direction of all three fragrances anyway. If you still want one for your collection and you're not a Hermès hardcore fan, the Fattan is recommended. Because at one third of the price and very high similarity to the originals, the Arab is unbeatable. And if that's not enough for you, you might just as well fall in love with the bottle as I did. Because I can hardly find a more beautiful geometric shape than the polygon :-) So at least for me it says:
And the winner is... Fattan!
