Parfum d`Hermes Hermes for women Pictures

Rouge Hermès: created by Akiko Kamei in 1984, the fragrance was known as Parfum d’Hermès. Reinterpreted in 2000 and renamed Rouge Hermès, the emblematic colour of the House, this semi-oriental floral amber is the very essence of sophistication. One easily recognises in its afternote, unforgettable for its richness as well as for the mastery of its composition, the mark of one of perfume’s all-time grand classics.

Parfum d`Hermes Fragrance Reviews


Parfum d'Hermes is a lost treasure. I would love to have a full bottle of this one but it has become too difficult to find for a reasonable price. It deserves the admiration, it is a truly timeless beauty. The blend starts with a spectacular hyacinth plus green notes top, followed by a bright and powdery combination of classic flowers which lead to a warm smoky and resinous dry down supported by spicy sweet woody solid base. It is a chic classic, not too bold still distinct. Easy to wear on daytime, long lasting enough as perfumes of the era used to be. Just makes my hard ache that such a wonder disappeared forever.

Thank you so much dear Fanny for your kind generosity. I think of you every time I wear it.


smell Iris almost all the way through this one. Which is a good thing; I love iris. I get a lot of hyacinth in the opening, along with a bit of bergamot, and something that makes it sparkle. That might be the aldehydes.

The middle of this is gorgeous. Powdery, sweet iris. It always makes me think of candied violets, and reminds me of the smell of my Meteorites powder. If I had to compare it to something, I'd say it reminds me a bit of Givenchy Le De, although this one is more floral and that one is more powdery.

The drydown is nice too. I get a lot of incense, and a bit of amber. I agree with the reviewer who said that the top seems out of balance with the rest of the perfume. The top seems younger and fresher to me, but it's such a lovely scent overall that I don't mind.


D'Hermes was created in 1984 by Raymond Chaillan and Akiko Kamei.

Bursting by oily balsamic myrrh rose and hyacinth, aldehydes dipped in galbanum, obviously-older brother of Hermes Rouge, for most of people these two might seem to be the twins....Nevertheless
First and immediate reaction from that resinous myrrh in d'Hermes is Caron Sacre. While in Hermes Rouge you quite fascinated by Samsar-ish rich flowing sandal. Rouge dustier, louder, woodier, d'Hermes more rosy and incens-y
Also if to go for simples – Rouge is sweeter – parfum d'Hermes saltier from aldehydes and amber. That's if to bring d'Hermes to point of parallelism and to show what is different for those, who interested to know. I can't say which one I love more though, just happy to own both now.


Close to the all time classic fragrances of Chamade and Heure Exquise Annick Goutal... A vibe of later version of Chanel no. 19 and Silences .....


What a beautiful blind buy ...pure class from the first breath, now two hours later a soft carnation with a funky animalic undertone. Love it! ( vintage bottle of edt)

Of course Parfum d'Hermès deserves a better review, but for now, all I have to say is:

It is lovely, lovely, lovely!

It surpassed all my expectations.


I love it initially but then it ended up smelling like moth balls for some reason. I am very sad, it doesn't work well on my body chemistry. It's so beautiful until it hits my skin. So unfortunate...


Crisp, zesty citrus and aldehydes; strong at first but soon enough it's true beauty emerges. Kinda like this one. It's different. Roses with incense and myrrh are wrapped well together, giving smoky rose and resins aura that smells so good! The fragrance is a thing of beauty.
Long lasting and notch up heavy!


Love at fist whiff.
How I wish I had met this particular Hermes sooner.
A vivid scent which stands out in a crowd, never minding what time, nor age anyone is living in.

Classy, crisp, yet quite velvety, like a legendary beauty.

OMG! I'm surprised that this perfume doesn't get too many reviews!! I had the old bottle one...this perfume is the embodiment of feminine sophistication! It's a soft,powdery floral scent,although I did get the aldehyde,unlike caleche, it's a very subtle aldehyde and it blends really well with the jasmine and hyacinth notes. I love the classy vintage bottle. Staying power is excellent & sillage is good.I really want to repurchase but I'm still searching for the right price :D. If you like to smell classy,feminine & sophisticated,you should try Parfum D'hermes.


Mmmm!!!! I like this! So sophisticated and elegant! It smells like a true lady! Leather notes are very strong here. AFter a while all I smell is good leather and I'm not even a fan of leathery scents!
Many Hermes don't work well on my skin. They are beautiful fragrances but not always suitable to my chemistry. I could test Parfum d'Hermes in a old perfumery shop where they have all the big ones from the past and I was enchanted! I don't really see the difference between this one and Rouge which I also like.
This is warm, enveloping, ultra-class, full of nuances and very feminine. Nothing to do with latest flat scents. It could be a little difficult to sport around, but so deeply satisfying!
I see a beautiful, elegant young lady all dressed in design clothes in the style of Grace Kelly when I smell Parfum d'Hermes. Sophisticated is the word and at the same time there is an approachable feeling in this scent. Distant but warm.
The staying power is very good and the bottle is pure class too!


The 1980s Chypre fragrances are by far my favorites. In the early part of that decade, perfume houses took the previously strict parameters of the Chypre family and blew them up. New- and always bold- designs were built upon the traditional Chypre chassis of bergamot, a classic floral meritage, and resinous or animalic moss. On the scene arrived such unlikely stars as the resinous, heavy fruit notes of Talisman by Balenciage, the outrageous ylang-ylang of banana in L'Arte de Gucci by Gucci and Pour un Femme by Caron, the brazen rose note in Rose Cardin by Pierre Cardin, peaty smoke as in original Versace for women, the spicy woody interpretation of original Fendi for women, the animal in Paloma Picasso (spicy) and La Nuit by Rabanne (straight up)...I could go on and on.

Parfum d'Hermes does not shout as loud as the exemplary scents above; it is a sleeper, the classy older sister who gets the good husband. She and sibling scent Ysatis (Givenchy, 1984, by Dominique Rompion) are modern executions of traditional chypre ingredients.

What I enjoy most about this perfume is the beguiling top- the aldehydes are paired not just with the usual bergamot, but also with the cloying sweetness of the hyacinth playing against the strong, green, spicy, woody Galbanum. It's like an entire composition in just 5 minutes. After this blazing entrance, Parfum d'Hermes calms down significantly and enters a classic floral heart with powdery jasmine atop a subtle velvet of iris. The rose is very quiet-it must be Damascan absolute, not a synthetic- and makes a discreet appearance only after 20 minutes. Both the character and the strength of the notes become quite modest, in contrast to the top. Half an hour in, one hardly notices the seamless transition into the warm, woody incense base, with a restrained vanilla note. While sillage lessens considerably, the longevity of this scent remains excellent, due most certainly to the fine ingredients.

My one criticism of this perfume: while I adore the top, it is out of balance with the much more restrained heart and base. Sort of like realizing you have been talking too loudly at a dinner, and trying to compensate by assuming a polite and softspoken demeanor. No matter how hard you try, no one will forget your first impression.


Warm, powdery, gently aldehydic, classic. I have a little bottle of parfum and have only worn it once. Very nice, but I'm not lovestruck.

Notes, as best as I could gather: aldehydes, bergamot, hyacinth, egyptian jasmine, Florentine iris, ylang-ylang, bulgarian rose, labdanum, cedarwood, musk, amber, spices, vanilla.


First thing that made me go and sniff this fragrance was the bottle. I find it amazingly attractive!

Parfum d`Hermes is a very rich and warm fragrance with a vintage touch. In the beginning it is very flowery on my skin, I can clearly smell a little sharp smell of hiacynths and aldehydes mixed with sultry jasmines, then as the time goes by, it calms down and becomes woody, powdery and soft, creating a warm cloud all around you.

Parfum d`Hermes is indeed an elegant and cosy scent, from my point of view, perfect for a strong and self confident woman who is very romantic in her heart :)

The staying power is very good.
