New Release: Terre d’Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche by Hermes

Terre-d-Hermes-eau-tres-fraiche-HD-@quentinbertoux-2_copy

WHAT I SMELL:  Terre d’Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche opens with a very refreshing citrus and juicy grapefruit which sits atop the unmistakenly Terre d’Hermes cedar like wood.   But given a couple of minutes, the cool citrus dominates. It’s refreshing, bright and rather happy.  Soon enough the cedar makes a return along with the geranium giving it a bit of spice, but the citrus comes in and out rotating its place on the top with the woody components.  Finally, Eau Tres Fraiche maintains this hue of wooded lightly bitter citrus that’s not too sweet, not too dry and is overall just an ease to wear.

summer camp

Terre d’Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche notes:

Top notes are orange, citruses and water notes; middle note is geranium; base notes are woody notes, patchouli and cedar.

WHAT IT SMELLS LIKE TO ME:  Summer camp.  It’s fresh, it’s woody and feels like the morning dew with the sun hitting the surrounding lake and woods.

THREE ADJECTIVES THAT DESCRIBE TERRE d’HERMES EAU TRES FRAICHE:  comfortable, easy, fresh

BOTTOM LINE:  Terre d’Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche is a nicely done flanker and is perfect for the summer.  Terre d’Hermes is one of my all time favorites and this makes for a nice addition to the line.
