Hermes H24 Eau de Parfum had to appear on the blog, if we consider the level of the classic H24 EdT offshoot. The two compositions, by the way, have many elements in common, although it absolutely cannot be said that the new version is “only” an amplification of the original. Of course, all the bright points will continue to be felt here. So we have a fruity note, a’la watermelon or melon. We have herbs rubbed with sugar. There is also sage in the role of the main character.
The difference is the temperature. Hermes H24 Eau de Parfum is noticeably warmer. At the beginning there is an impression of a certain suniness, as if every element is basked in the rays of the midday sun. On the other hand, as time passes, the source of heat changes and “iron” notes appear. Sometimes we even experience the play of some molecules that vividly recall a dry cleaner. With that said, this is not a flaw. This provides a clear contrast to the natural herbal chord. What’s more, you can also find wormwood-absinthe threads in this version, where the bitterness of the liquor mixes with the sweetness of half-caramelized sugar.
The base is also great. It refers strongly to the classic, but smuggles in both an element of hot, ironed laundry and the herbalism of liquor with a sweet note.
Final opinion on Hermes H 24 Eau de Parfum perfume
A longer review is unnecessary, as the fragrance is similar to the first version. However, it is not a clone of it. I think it is a very interesting interpretation. And he really makes a colossal impression when wearing it.
