Terre D’Hermes means Earth of Hermes. The name reflects that this scent was designed to be an alchemical journey through the elements. It is a heady mixture of woody, vegetable and mineral scents. It contains top notes of grapefruit and orange, with heart notes of gunflint, flint, peppers, pink peppercorn, geranium leaves, patchouli, and Baies rose, and base notes of Atlas cedarwood, vetiver, and gum benzoin. Makes a great scent for warmer weather.
Terre d’Hermès is a metaphor for a matrix that speaks of territory as well as matter, earth, and roots. This scent is based on an alchemy of wood, the scent first introduces the gaity of orange, the bitterness of grapefruit and the vivacity of pepper and of fresh spices. This flirts with the mineral effect of flint and the coarseness of vetiver. Dominated by cedar, the fragrance goes deeper with the sweetness of resins and the impalpable voluptuousness of benzoin.
