Wearing this one again. Definitely a masculine-leaning floral and a discontinued fragrance which can be still bought cheaply.Spring has sprung, so I'm wearing Penhaligons Ostara today. It's a masterpiece of a fragrance with clean, transparent narcissus and was only on the market for maybe a year.
I always have trouble describing this one but I’ll give it a shot.What's it like? I vaguely remember Luca Turin saying something about it being dated but I can't find the line right now.
Thanks, much appreciated!I always have trouble describing this one but I’ll give it a shot.
So to be clear, I have the black cap and orange front - which I believe is the most recent formulation- which does not feel dated to me. It has shades of Cartier’s declaration (heavily imo) and Chanel’s pour Monsieur (a bit less so but there). Probably the best way I can put the most recent formulation of Eau d’Hermes is that if Dior’s Eau Sauvage (most recent formulation) had a leather/anamalic tint and bulked up the spicy mid notes like cardamom and cumin. That said I have not given any of the older formulations a try which I believe the comments by Luca Turin were referring to.
