Where is this trip going?
Hermes is great. Voyage always stood on the desk of my former office partner Reiner.
But with him (the scent, not Reiner) the spirits divide with me. Cause I don't really know what the scent is all about. This should also not be negative, but my nose does not know whether it should be citric or spicy or woody. Everything together feels a little holterdipolter disharmonious.
It's citric fresh, no question. But not quite Bergamot citronic either. That seems to be the spice mixture that makes the lemon a little tarter. All in all but quite good.
Citrus remains. But then it looks a bit synthetic-sweet. Green notes I do not sniff Rather it reminds me of dry flowers that one drizzle with oil to use them as room fragrance. And sauna infusion CONCENTRATE!
All in all, these should be the flowers. Tea? Hm, I don't know. He'd be too perfumed for me.
So, the heart note is too dolle dryblumen and somewhat synthetic, not so dolle.
no no no, oh, necessary... The journey continues downhill in the direction of Badreiniger. Something about Rossmann. Also, the journey is now scratching quite easily. A balanced and warm wood musk base I can not discover.
What you gotta hand it to him: He remains somehow citric until the end. Only it has a synthetic effect (from the heart note). That's probably why I don't want to lose the lemon from this scent. Because normally the natural citrus aromas evaporate at the latest in the heart note.
Citric fragrances usually undergo a metamorphosis on their way to the base note. Voyage d´Hermes obviously tries to stop this metamorphosis and uses something synthetic for it. That doesn't work out somehow...
Normal (6 to 8 hours is enough). For a perfume (and a EdT) but not outstanding.
In the beginning yes, afterwards rather restrained and reserved. It's better that way too.
The effect of the flacon design (on me) is directly proportional to the effect of the fragrance (on me). What the rotation mechanism has to do with "Voyage" is not known. The quite unusual bottle is not ugly, but it doesn't really know where it wants to go...
All in all, a fragrance that every (man) can wear, but does not necessarily have to wear - at any time of year - at any activity. That's all there is to it. Something Hermes-typical special, however, is it with nichten.
