Terre d’Hermès – my new favourite fragrance, for him (and her)

Do you sometimes happen to sit next to someone on the train, or maybe you’re walking behind them on the street, and then you get a whiff of the perfume they’re wearing and you’re all like: “That is the most edgy, delicious and classy smell ever, I want to smell like that”?

But then you’re too shy to run after them and ask about the name of the fragrance.

Well, last week one of Sam’s colleagues was wearing what I thought was the most amazing perfume and after a few pints I had no trouble asking. Turns out it’s Terre D’Hermès. The scent is very woody (cedar), peppery and smoky. It also contains vetiver, which I really like.

So I bought it for Sam today, and if he gets tired of it after a while that’s just fine, as I would gladly inherit it. Until then I might steal a few drops here and there until I finally get around to buying the Comme des Garcons’ Dover Street Market perfume on my wish list.
