Terre d’Hermes by Hermes

Spring has definitely sprung this year.  But today, the day started off a bit chillier than it has been for the last couple of weeks.  This gave me opportunity to break out one of my favorites, Terre d’Hermes.  I’m not much for “this is a winter” or “this is a summer” scent classifications, but in this case this fragrance best suits my fall and winter moods.  On initial application, you get a rush or citrus and orange with a slight clove note (I don’t notice cloves as an ingredient, but to me it’s there).  The orange then takes background to a beautiful and warm cedar scent.  When you mention cedar, I typically think of hamster cages; but in this case, the hamster would be lounging on the most luxurious bedding imaginable.  Terre d’Hermes is a unique scent that has great longevity and sillage.  It’s a captivating scent without being intrusive.  Although marketed to men, a female co-worker of mine was wearing this once and it worked perfectly for her as well.  This is one of my favorites; so much so that I’m on my third bottle!
