This is just so gorgeous! Dry and clean citrus in perfect balance with woody notes. A high qualitative fragrance for all men out there who wants to make a statement. I got a sample of it today and just canīt stop smelling my wrist right now. Not unisex what so ever. It is masculinity in a bottle. Highly recommended.

I wanted a matchy-matchy scent for him, with my Kelly Caleche. Terre D' Hermes isnt exactly a match...but i just found an ultimate signature fragrance for him! His usual faves are Polo Black, Polo Double Black, Polo Blue...the list of boring polos goes on, with the occasional Farenheit or Dior Homme. This one killed everything else. It smells like expensive leather just taken a luxe bath, with the maturity of a well-soled man and the flooze of a skull T-shirt. He wears this everywear, repurchase after repurchase. I steal this too sometimes. it's dope good.

You wouldn't believe where I found this gem....on a girlie-girl site where a beautiful girl said her boyfriend got this for his birthday,wore it once and said he didn't like it at all!!....
and since then, it stood in their bathroom, until she decided to sell it for a 15 $!!!for a 2.5. oz bottle...
hm, try to say NO to that offer:ĐĐĐ
of course I said to my bf I'm going to buy it for him, and we ended up using Terre together (he bought it,oh what a sacrifice...:)...
ok,what I think about this perfume: it smells like a burnt orange peel plus Chanel's Sycomore...amaaaaazingly sexy but in a sophisticated way (more italian kind of sexy then french...)...very dry,mineral,has a note of humid soil and very salty component (Eau des Merveilles saltiness...)....sillage is huuuuuge!!...it could be pulled off as a female scent but its caracter is purely masculine..... I'm tryin' to pull it off,and not sure for how long will I endure the fight with vetyver..(don't like Sycomore, we certainly don't get along!)..
best description is given by a fellow basenoter who said:
''...Terre D'Hermes does exactly what M. Ellena is known to do with his fragrances: Evolve and Intrigue. Ellena is known for his transparent style - literally "see through" fragrances. Give my man a dirty old window and he'll shoot pellets of art right through it in a pattern that's apparent...but when looking through the holes, an entirely new world unfolds right there in front of you.
Starts with a fireworks display of rugged citruses with a sparkling sensation given off by the pepper...dries down to a mellowed orange zest fragrance with a strong woody, earthy, and soil like undertone...which gives off a strong, masculine, yet refreshing sensation. Extremely versatile...can be sported in a suit, a henley and jeans, or T-shirt and shorts, ...anything - any weather - any season - a remarkable creation by JCE.
JC Ellena,you are the Beethoven of perfume industry!!
(p.s. I recently read that Terre actually comes in 2 different concentrations....and I was wondering why is this edp so strong and kinda unpleasantly bitter....edt is much more subtle and flowery, so my vote goes to creamy,airy and more feminine edt...;D)

When I discovered it for the first time I was very, very sorry that it was a male fragrance. I would love to feel it all the time!!! It is absolutely perfect. Gave it to my husband for more than 3 times... So far))

I would recommend this fragrance to a guy but personally it didn't grab me as being a memorable or ineteresting scent. A bit to heavy and I normally enjoy stronger scents.

I'm a fan of citrus smells, but need to have some depth with it (like a spicy or woodsy accord). Having read the reviews and descriptions of this popular scent, I was dying to try it. Citrus opening? Yes. Woodsy drydown? Intriguing. Searched high and low all over town to find this and when I finally did, I grabbed the tester and spritzed some juice on my arm. I took a big sniff. It was all I hoped it would be and more.
Okay, maybe that is a bit dramatic, but TdH far out performs so much of the fragrances marketed to men these days. This is a great scent that is nice for office wear (I've worn it to work and it gets a thumbs up), a casual night out, and even formal events (wore it to a wedding recently). For me, this is better for warmer weather (spring/summer). Wore it on a cold day a while ago and it had no power.

This has become my husband's favorite fragrance. Fabulous dry down and it lasts all day. He still smells yummy after a long day at work. He says the women at work are always commenting about how great he smells and asking him what he is wearing. I love it. HUGE improvement over the Cool Water from which I've been trying to wean him since the 80s.

I got this as a present for my finacee and he just loved it.. when he finished it I had to buy him another one and he was over the moon , he doesn't have time for shopping and he appreciates this elegant , manly scent so much .. I like it too but would rather have him wear it in outings than in "close encounters" as it is too overwhelming for me:)

Excellent perfume for men. I wear many unisex and men's perfumes. However, this one I will leave for DH. Yes, it is excellent. It is everything everyone describes below. I bought it thinking I could wear it. It is more masculine on me than I would like- both in the opening and dry down. I have the parfum and it is the only concentration I have tried. According to reviews, the parfum is not much different than the EDT.

Terre d'Hermes gives an impression of clean ginger over light woods, even though ginger is not an official note. A light transparent spicy fragrance. For men or women. Reminiscent of Tauer's L'Air du Desert Marocain, but much lighter.

I seem to enjoy more and more of Jean Claude Ellena's creations!
Terre D' Hermes is a perfect day to day fragrance for men that could turn easily as a woman's favorite as well!
I for one am in absolute love with it. It's a perfect combination of hesperides, spice and wood!
It starts fresh but warm also, very close to the skin! I detect a hint of something similar to lavender which makes me want to poor this stuff all over! Tell you what it's addictive, that's what it is!
It's the outdoorsy type of fragrance , woods supreme, cedar and patchoulli, but also very sophisticated! It is described as a woody-spicy but the spice is soft and has almost musky quality but spicy nonetheless!
The dry down is mossy green , earthy and warm!!!
Lasting power for the EDT is up to 5-6 hours but great silleage!!! I would declare this unisex in a second , I for one would drown myself in Terre d'Hermes!
Top note: Grapefruit, Orange, Flint
Middle note: Pepper, Pink Pepper, Geranium leaves, Patchouli
Base note: Cedar, Vetiver, Benzoin

I really like the reference to alchemy made by the perfume's creator J.C. Ellena.
The brand name itself (Hermes) corresponds to Mercury , which is produced within the alchemical process. Also, the earthy scents represented by cedar & pepper that is topped off with orange, grapefruit, geranium and rose. ( Heaven and earth/ , spiritual /physical) The catalyst being the gunflint, like the trickster that is Hermes in mythologies, igniting and joining the two different worlds.
I love all that. I totally appreciate the analogy and poetry that went into making of the perfume and the scent itself. I like the masculine and feminine duality ( depending on who wears it) of the smell. Great scent for all seasons.

BORING - this is all I can say! Not for a real man, maybe for 16 or 17, but not for a grown up. No persistency,no "story",no nothing ! What a disappointment.

What a surprise ... (not really) a Jean Claude Ellena scent by Hermes that smells amazing! There was never any doubt, but I've never smelled it on my own DH so I can't really judge until I use his skin to sample. I've smelled it on myself (and it's good too), but recently had DH with me while I was fragrance shopping, so I sprayed him with Terre d'Hermes. Not really thinking much about it we continued shopping. And when got into the car for the ride home ---- I kept smelling this amazingly, soft, sexy scent. I thought it was something I had sprayed on myself (but no luck). It was DH and HE smelled so good!! I wanted to sit in his lap practically and I suppose I distracted him too much as we missed the I-95 turn off... and had to redirect twice! Obviously, I really like it and so does DH! It's not heavy or cloying and doesn't shout any notes.. It's lively, refreshing without being too citrusy --- or heavy on the floral, cedar or benzoin. This amazing scent includes a mixture of cedar, grapefruit, orange, gunflint, silex, pepper, rose, geranium, and benzoin. Sometimes men's fragrances go too heavy on cedar and thus, the 'hamster cage ick!' (yes that's an accord) comes into play. Not Terre d'Hermes ---it's just a beautiful masculine blend of notes that creates such a pleasant fragrance. Yes it's sexy, but it's understately so. Thank you Jean Claude Ellena -- you've impressed my DH and that's not easy. One more thing -- it's FBW -- but to quote an old soap ad 'manly yes but I like it too!' It will go into my collection on the top shelf so DH can use it.. but I'll be hitting it too. It's that good!

Quite a nice earthy/woodsy scent. However, I have chemistry issues with this--it hovers on the edge of pickley. It never quite makes it to that stage, but I can't stand the suspense.

Nearly irresistible - almost perfect. Once the very top citrus notes burn off it becomes the dry earth smell of hot summer afternoons where you hang out with nothing to do because itís so hot thatís all you can do. The scent of the parched earth mingles with warm fragrant-leafed plants; you become languid, and therein are the first stages of seduction. It could have me. It just about does have me...but it doesnít. The base reveals itself and it becomes a very ordinary, very keeps-his-socks-on kind of guy-thing after-shave smell, (a quality which became even more pronounced on hubby, and which did nothing to enhance his desirability) and the enchantment is lost. Rats. And we were getting along so well up to then.

While waiting in line at a car rental place in San Francisco last spring, I stood behind a guy wearing this. I could have smelled him all day! Grapefruit, mineral, woody, fantastic. I don't think there are any scents by the great J-C Ellena that I haven't liked, except for the Kelly one. Have purchased this for myself, as Masculine / Feminine categories for scents are just silly: wear what you like that smells good!

Oh, how I love Terre D'hermes! I find it wonderfully sexy on guys. Since no guys in my house love it (my boyfriend, which normally have great taste in fragrances cannot bare it for some reason) I enjoy my full bottle myself. It also layers great with many other fragrances!

As a guy, I'm usually influenced by women's reaction to a frag. If they like it, I'll tend to give it the benefit of the doubt. If they don't, I often won't. Terre is one of the exceptions. Women love it. But it just doesn't agree with me. It's a very clean grapefruit-vetiver-geranium frag that's an olfactory dead ringer for Paul Smith's Story. It's clean and fresh, it will make you smell clean and fresh, and like many clean and fresh scents it's linear. No nuances or second or third acts. It's obvious and intended to make people say "Hey you smell good!" Nothing wrong with that and nothing wrong with Terre. If you like this, check out Story. I would favor Terre, though, as it seems to have decent longevity, whereas Story is a very short story.

I tested this by mistake not realising it was a gents cologne. I totally fell in love with it, being streets ahead of the other Hermes scents IMO. Beautiful bergamot top notes morph into a woodsy vetivert mix. This is such an unusual fragrance, and despite the price, you get a huge bottle. Staying power is what I expect from a EDT, and I find the sillage is great. my husband loves this, but only on me.
