Reviews of Hermes Eau D'hermes
from basenotes - "I deliberately didn’t look up the notes in this before I tried it, as I wanted to see what I could pick out. Straight up I got the leather, the sandalwood, the lavender and the cardamom – sharp and smoky and spicy. Then once it warmed up, I got a beautiful tang from the bergamot. This seems very cool initially, but after an hour or two, the vanilla and sandalwood start to show through, which warms it and gives it a lovely creamy note."
from whatmenshouldsmellike - "Eau d’Hermes begins with crisp clean citrus notes. Shortly after they begin to fizz and bubble in a very Roudnitska style, seen in his many creations for Dior. From this vantage point you receive the first window view of resins and spice. Labdanum, moss and spice feel like parts of a chypre puzzle that were deliberately left incomplete. The perfume’s infamous carnal note, the scent of human skin gradually builds as part of the leather theme."
