Terre d’Hermès, the elements in the spotlight
The history of the Hermès house is first of all the history of Thierry Hermès. Then 36 years old, the latter opened a small shop as a master craftsman harness maker. He manufactures hair equipment which he then sells in his store. The horse world is omnipresent for Thierry Hermès. In 1867, the Hermès house was rewarded with the “First Class Medal” , awarded during the Universal Exhibition. When Thierry Hermès died in 1878, it was these little children who pushed the brand to expand into new areas such as leather goods and perfumery. In 2006, Hermès unveiled “Terre d’Hermès”, a masculine fragrance between heaven and earth.

The woody and spicy notes of Terre d’Hermès
“Terre d’Hermès” is described as a true crossing of the elements, a vegetable and mineral masculine water… A fragrance between earth and sky. “Terre d’Hermès” begins with sparkling citrus notes, such as orange and grapefruit. These are then joined by the mineral notes of flint. The heart of “Terre d’Hermès” is more vegetalthanks to the presence of geranium and patchouli, associated with more spicy tones such as pepper or rose berries. The base reveals the earthy sensuality of cedar notes mixed with benzoin notes. As for the bottle, it displays an imposing glass, with clean and soft edges whose base is an “H”, the iconic symbol of the House of Hermès. It reflects the light, all in transparency, while its metallic shoulders reflect the invisible orange mesh of the cork. The bottle displays total harmony between tradition and modernity.
A wonderful olfactory representation of the movement and the beauty of the elements. “Terre d’Hermès” is a powerful masculine fragrance. Between earth and sky, “Terre d’Hermès” takes us to new spaces, very distant lands.
“Feel the earth, lying on your back, your eyes in the heavens. » Jean-Claude Ellena
