Terre d’Hermès Intense Water Vetiver, the intensity of the elements
If the Hermès house draws its origin from the heart of the equestrian world, it has been able to develop fine talents, particularly as that of perfumer. It was in 1951 that the Hermès brand offered its first fragrance, soberly called Eau d’Hermès. Today it is the source of magnificent olfactory successes such as Rocabar, Eau des Merveilles, Jour d’Hermès, 24 Faubourg, Calèche and Terre d’Hermès . A masculine fragrance between land and sea, Terre d’Hermès was created in 2006. The latter celebrates a story that tells the alchemy of the elements. After several variations, Hermès presents Terre d’Hermès Eau Intense Vétiver.
The Terre d’Hermès saga or the beauty of nature
In order to continue to write the wonderful and dazzling story between heaven and earth written by Jean-Claude Ellena, Christine Nagel, the new perfumer from the house of Hermès wanted to imagine Terre d’Hermès Eau Intense Vétiver. Terre d’Hermès is a fragrance that reconnects with natural elements and the result is a perfect alchemy, between the sea, the sky, the earth, the woods and the sun. Jean-Claude Ellena affirmed that Terre d’Hermès makes it possible to “feel the earth, lying on your back, eyes in the heavens”. Because she wished to continue in the footsteps of Jean-Claude Ellena, Christine Nagel wished to “infuse her signature with new strength”, by bringing “an intensity born from another point of view, from yet another territory. unexplored Earth ”. If vetiver is an ingredient already present in the original fragrance, it is here the culmination of this new variation and worked in a “warm, round, sensual and vigorous” way.
Terre d’Hermès Intense Vetiver Water, a tangy and tangy freshness
The beginning of Terre d’Hermès Eau Intense de Vétiver plays on the freshness of its elders and blends multifaceted freshness such as grapefruit, rhubarb, thyme, verbena and bergamot. The heart of the fragrance is bursting with vetiver which is associated for the occasion with sap leaves and geranium, giving a perfect aromatic-woody balance to the entire composition. Finally, the Terre d’Hermès Eau Intense de Vétiver base combines vetiver and Sichuan pepper for an extraordinary intensity. The bottle uses the codes of its predecessor. Heavy and imposing, and more elongated, the bottle is also refined and very elegant. Designer Philippe Mousquet has proposed a content in the shape of an “H” model which adapts perfectly to a manly hand.
True star of the Hermès brand, Terre d’Hermès is a fragrance close to nature that dazzles us with every note. In 2018, the brand decided to offer a new version with Terre d’Hermès Eau Intense Vétiver. If the latter puts the vetiver terribly in value, the fragrance does not forget the DNA of the Terre d’Hermès perfume, so close to the elements.
