Terre d’Hermes for men is sexy, sophisticated
Every now and then, a fragrance comes along that rides a tidal wave in a sea of mediocrity. It’s an even rarer occurrence among men’s scents, as most tend to smell alike and never really break new ground. In 2006, Hermes launched Terre d’Hermes, one of the most sophisticated and sexiest men’s scents of the last 25 years. Three years later, it remains one of the least-worn and most under-appreciated - until someone catches a whiff. Terre is French for “earth,” and the scent has a raw, elemental earthiness with notes of pepper, flint, Atlas cedar and vetiver. But it takes a light, smooth and sensual twist with hints of grapefruit, orange, geranium and bay rose. If the scent were a man, it would be George Clooney or Blair Underwood - elegant, confident and effortlessly cool. And if, as Coco Chanel once said, fragrance is “the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory,” then Terre d’Hermes proves it. Click on the photo to buy the prestige eau de toilette at a discount.
