Voyage d’Hermès Eau de Toilette and All-Over Shower Gel: A Strong In-scent-tive


Voyage d’Hermès is the cleanest and most refreshing scent by Hermès to date. I have not been much of a fan of Hermès scents in the past – their heavy-handed use of leather and musk was a bit too much rugged fragrance for me. But this new incarnation, a unisex scent developed by perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena, starts out with citrus hints, moves into cardamom and maybe even a glint of green tea, and the final waft is a subtle musk and fresh woodsiness – an enticing combination. Best of all, it blends with my own favorite florals and carries with that slight muskiness, to create just a hint of mystery around you.

The Eau de Toilette comes in the coolest bottle, and the refills are genius. Not only do refills guarantees repeat customers, you score a major deal by paying $100 for a 4.4 oz. refill, when you pay nearly the same for a 1.2 oz. bottle.

Pair it with the all-over shower gel. The fresh-meets-woodsy might be a bit generic, but that’s not a bad thing when it comes to shower gels. Use the foam generously in the shower, and get the full Hermès experience. I’m packing both the shower gel and travel sized eau de toilette for my trip to Paris this week!
