Insert Police Joke *here*
Somebody's got to do the gag "Officer, is it legal to clone famous perfumes and put your own label on them?
Legally you are allowed to do it, whether this is also right you must decide yourself."
This tweet from the police recently went viral. The Police Instinct also goes off like that but is questionable
Whether the designers of this fragrance deliberately took Terre d'Hermès as a model is an open question. That would also be a wicked insinuation.
But the fact is that the similarities are striking.
Fresh earth and pepper spread out immediately after application, patchouli hits you right in the face as soon as the first impression fades away.
I definitely like the fact that Instinct, despite all its earthiness, does not become bottomlessly grim.
One always has the feeling of being above and not yet below ground.
The projection is pleasantly restrained, so that one does not rob others of air with this special scent, yet it is clearly perceptible. There is not much negative to say about the durability. Especially if you keep the price in mind.
From 3 hours onwards, however, it is then only sniffable for persons approaching.
All in all the original is much more intense but also more aggressive.
Whether you like it or not is up to you. I get along quite well with this Terre d'Hermès "light", but Police Instinct is definitely suitable for the office.
