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.
This is probably the “hundredth” version of the classic, but if it sells, I understand the brand’s move
For me, it is a composition very much in the style of the classic. The difference is that there are less cinnamon-tasty tones here. At the beginning there is a shadow of something that resembles an herbal landrace. Later, the composition has a bit of “fruity” accents, but just with something fresh – and not as apple pie-like as it was in the classic.
Jimmy Choo I Want Choo Forever smells further sweet, perhaps even landry. They also feel vanilla and white-flower chord, but all elements were presented “more expensively”. The complexity of the composition was also increased, which for me is its most significant advantage.
In any case, Hermes Eau de Basilic Pourpre is among the fragrances that will score positively. It is truly basilic, juicy, crisp, and its level of naturalness brings it close to sophisticated niche compositions. It is worth mentioning that basil plays almost solo here. Other notes barely highlight it and add character. This apparent simplicity does not take anything away from the quality. There is strength in it.
