Hermes Eau D`Orange Verte

21 Feb

This fragrance smells uncannily similar to L’eau de L’Artisan by L’Artisan, only with the addition of orange and lime sour fruit and peel top notes. Under that initial blast of fresh citrus fruits, there is an almost musty, herbal base of something reminiscent of dried, though still very green basil and grass. I happened to have the bottle of L’Artisan close by, and when I applied D’Orange Vert, and allowed the top notes to settle on my skin so that the heart and base began to take on more dimension, I couldn’t help but notice L’Artisan’s green herbal body peering out. I applied it on my other wrist just to be sure and the similarities blew me away.

Personally, I would choose L’Artisan over the Hermes in this instance, because the longevity on D’Orange Verte is very poor, even more so than L’Artisan’s generally short-lasting fragrances. If you are in love with all things sour orange however, D’Orange Verte is certainly that even with the basil lurking in the background.
