Of course, it's always a matter of personal taste and body chemistry!

I think TdH is a modern classic. I actually enjoy Rocabar more, though. I haven't worn it since I finished my bottle a couple of years ago, but I just smelled it again this weekend at Neimans and I was reminded how much I liked it. I think Rocabar is the most overlooked scent in the Hermes lineup.

Creed what? Last I checked, they had probably two dozen offerings. Some are good; some not so good. The "famous" offerings are generally not so good... GIT, MI, etc. I find awfully boring. Aubepine Acacia, Bois de Santal, Orange Spice, Cypres Musc, Ambre Canelle, Royal Scottish Lavender, Baie de genievre... kinda nifty.

The only mainstream Creed I liked were Silver Mountain Water and Erolfa, but I've never met a Creed for which I'd pay retail (with the POSSIBLE exception of Bois de santal, which AFAIK is no longer in production). that one was a wonderfully foul, stinky civety sandalwood.

+1 come one Hampton, I expected a little more. satisfied.gif

I have creed millesime imperial and I like but it's not very unique, IMO.

I agree almost completely with rach on this one. Of the more famous offerings, I think Aventus is quite good. It doesn't live up to the hype of the online fragrance community, but that's because the hype was impossible to live up to. It's worth checking out. Among the less famous Creeds--which I like better on the whole--I think the standouts are Baie de Genievre, Acier Aluminium, and Selection Verte. Windsor is also worth checking out.

Pre-shower: Incense Oud.
SOTD: Portrait of a Lady. There are no superlatives I could use to describe this that haven't already been used a hundred times in this thread.

Rocabar was one of the first scents that I started with and it was nice but not compelling to me. I ended up swapping away my small bottle and never looked back. TdH I'm trying to love but not reaching for it at all. Come to think of it, I'm not sure there's anything from Hermes that I can't part with - not even Bel Ami.

Depends. Some are crazy fans of Angelique Encens, if you can find it. I thought Silver Mountain Water was nice but never got a bottle. Neroli Sauvage was an interesting celery seed/orange scent, worth a sniff. I actually bought a decant of that.

Today, a heaping helping of TF Tobacco Vanille. I still think Pure Havane is better, but this satisfies well enough.

I like Eau d'Hermes and Equipage (Rocobar and Terre too) but none of them feel essential to me. If Eau weren't so fleeting it would probably be one of my very favorites. I prefer to wear Declaration, which I think of as the modern remix. I've liked the Jardin scents that I've sampled, but I haven't bothered to acquire any of them.

Today: Hermes Vetiver Tonka - I didn't think I liked this but I realize now that it's a very good spin on vetiver. Slightly sweet but airy with the stemmy vetiver.

Looking like fall out there. So L'artisan Parfumeur - Dzongkha. I did not like this at first spray but it is growing on me incredibly quickly. This'll get another wear this week I feel.

I wear nothing else but Pehaligon's fragrances. Today I am wearing Quercos. I usually wear Blenheim/Quercus/ english fern in the mornings and Castile/Endymion/Hammam when out in the evenings.
My favourites are Blenheim, Quercus and Endymion

Well now I'm just going to feel compelled to visit the counter and reacquaint myself with Rocabar...just to see if I need it in my back pocket for future.  Personally, I enjoy wearing a scent for a long time, so that people associate it with me (not my natural scent, haha) and so it has got to be something that I feel really good in. It takes a lot for me to consider changing, and as you go through different stages of life, different scents seem appropriate.

 

I have bought acqua de parma for my father more than once - in my opinion it's a distinguished scent but stays grounded, and pretty masculine. It's what I think an older man who's done well for himself but isn't ostentatious should smell like.

 

That being said, it's amazing how different one scent can smell when applied to different bodies - I would never think that just because something works for me then it will work on everyone.

Rocabar has that melon note like Black Orchid?

I wore D'Eau Orange Verte for the day and Rocabar for the evening.

Will need to give OV another try but it seemed very light. Moreover, the opening reminded me a lot of D.R. Harris - Arlington (I think that one), which is cheaper.

John Varvatos- Vintage

A nice fragrance for this time of year (Fall). Plus, it won't put too much of a dent in your wallet.
