Voyage d’Hermes , oh where to begin with this very unusual fragrance. My review of this is based off the parfum version of this fragrance as it does come as an Edt. as well. It’s a very unique unisex fragrance that’ll change from bottle to skin from person to person but don’t expect it to project as this is a stay close to the skin fragrance.
The aromas are accentuated fresh wood and musk. The composition has floral notes of rose, warm amber lemon, cardamom and spices in top notes. The heart sneaks in hedione, green notes and tea, with a strong trail of musk combined with blond wood and warm amber. Fragrance is signed by Jean Claude Ellena.
This is not a loud fragrance but it will garner compliments from random encounters. Anyone that comes in contact with your skin, a hug of a loved one or a kiss will immediately fall in love with you all over again. It’s extremely versatile and great for the office. I find this to be a day time office or business scent. I see a businessman in first class reading his newspaper wearing this or a university professor. It’s elegant and you’ll feel very sophisticated wearing it. Where it lacks in siliage it makes up in longevity.
The bottle is as unusual as the ad campaign for this fragrance. Completely unique bottle design that is also confusing and not entirely sure what they were going with. It is also refillable but unsure if that is through a Hermes store that carries the fragrance as I have never seen refill kits for it at any department store. As a unisex fragrance it definitely appeals to the guy looking for a scent that is not too particular or flashy but sexy, charming and masculine at the same time, this is a perfect choice and will add to your class and sophistication.
To borrow a women’s experience with this fragrance:
“a refined journey, full of contentment and luxury. Not even close to a hectic, glamourous life but in a well-mannered and self-confident aristocratic way. As a woman I find it perfect for anything that is more or less professional. However, I would even more adore it worn by a gentleman, any place, any time.”
Fresh, unique, sexy, elegant, sophisticated, delicious, and addictive. House of Parfum rating of 9/10.
