3.8 out of 5
It was better than expected! Loved the scent and I would definitely purchase again!
A completely unique and unmistakable fragrance.
I'll start by saying this; I have never smelled a cologne as distinct as Hermann. It's such a unique blend, with a nice woody, peppery scent throughout, followed by faint hints of floral rose and patchouli. Just like it's name implies, this scent lasts a long time, and follows you around as if it's your own shadow. If you favor woody scents, but like them on the brighter side of things, you cannot go wrong with this choice.
It just was not one of my favorites￼ !!
Could be better￼ !!
Not my Preference
The scent did smell like it said it would but I like more fresh scents. Also it was really strong and prominent.
it isn’t the same bottle that’s presented
It's a scent sampling service. You get travel spritzers of .27 oz for under $15 each to try for about a month. THEN you can decide if you want to purchase full size bottles. This is so you can try scents for cheaper without having to but the full bottle. This service is NOT selling full bottles for $15 each. The bottles pictured just show what scent you are choosing to try. Did you even read what you were signing up for?
I received many great compliments
This smell is masculine. It intrigues you. Not too strong, and smells pleasant. It also engages you in intervals, to remind you of how nice the scent is.
I will be buying a bottle of my free trial is complete. This stuff smells incredible. It’s spicy and fresh at the same time.
Lovely scent, only reason I didn’t put a 5 start is because the bar is set high but Robert Graham and English Laundry thus far. However this smell is great and can be used for Office and our Casual settings. It’s a scent that says hey I’m confident.
Loved this way this lasted all day! It was a little powerful but I like that I only needed one spray for the whole day!
DAYUM! My new favorite fragrance!
My previous favorite was “About Last Night.” Etat is da Bomb dot com!
I get it but it’s not for me.
Although I knew I was taking a chance on this one it’s just a bit too spicy. I’m more into softer powdery scents. But I took a shot because the reviews were good. If you like spice. Go for it. I’d also say this is mor of a fall/winter smell.
Lots of compliments
If you like patchouli this is for yoy
Very out doorsey scent, great summer smell
I like woodsy and more nature inspired scents....its a little strong at first but not to worry it really levels out and smells great.
Just plain awful.
It stinks. It smells like a wet moldy towel left in a laundry hamper for a few weeks. Wish I could return, but this isn't Scent Box :(
It smelled great.
The scent was fantastic however it doesn’t last too long.
product not received
Haven't received the product this month or last so I can't tell you how it was.
I love how it’s not like anything I’ve ever used! It’s spicy and fresh at the same time. I love it. My new favorite!!
It was gone in two weeks
Didn't know I was going run out so fast.i was using it when I was going to work or play
Starts off fresh and kind of spicy and then softens up with a fresh rose scent that is masculine works perfect on my skin.
Smelled amazing just didn’t last long enough through the day and the spray container ran out to quickly.
Very unique fragrance
I love this fragrance. It is such a unique scent that it really stands out. It lasts long on your clothing, but the smell fades on your skin.
It smells even when I sweat, great all around scent
Not my thing
I can see how people enjoy this one, however it’s not the style for me. It was very strong to me and reminded me of a lot of old fashioned colognes that just aren’t my preference.
I love it!!!!
Did not last
I love the smell but did not last long on me.
hands down my favorite!
I would put this in my queue on repeat.
Good for a bathroom, not to wear. Very good cover up scent.
Loved my 1st scent!
The spicy notes with the subtle floral accents are perfect together! This was a great way to start my Scentbird journey. The scent is long lasting and my girlfriend loves it!
I like it
Speak fuccin great
I really enjoy this fragrance! I always get a smell that reminds me of some sort of deeply candied ginger. It's not actually ginger (and not the dry spicy kind of ginger), but it always evokes that imagery in my mind.
This scent and notes are that of oranges but not super sweet like you might think. When I had seen this and checked the notes I was skeptical. I had to try it though and it instantly became my top 10 scents. I love this White all my heart. I just wish I could buy a full bottle.
Lovely, Even If Not Original
All-in-all this fragrance isn't very original, which is strange for Etat Libre d'Orange, but it is very lovely. I love how peppery and woody it is on opening, and how it dries down into a sweet woodiness that works well for men or women.
This fragrance is so amazing! I love the sweet, citrus, yet manly essence this fragrance carries! I LOVE IT!!! LOVE IT!
Got this for my fiancé and it's the first time I've gotten more than a "meh" out of him, so that's something... LoL! He has a very fine-tuned sense of smell and is picky about fragrances, but the patchouli/rose combo was right up his alley, taste-wise. I personally thought it had a pronounced leather note to it... not offensive in the least, but definitely there.
Someone at my work told me I smelled like some kind of cleaning solution.
Someone at my work told me I smelled like some kind of cleaning solution but other than that I actually like it a lot.
It’s Woody and earthy... kinda sweet. Semi-modern vetiver describes it perfectly. Day or night. I can’t stop smelling myself. I’m not an electrician....
I don't know how to write a review of cologne. This made me feel like the hot guy in gym class in sophomore year of high school all grown up and sexy as hell. I spray it on my bed before I go to sleep because I love to smell it all night. I can't get enough.
A spicy yet semi sweet scent. It's super strong, so not much is needed, and it last forever. I could still smell this on my clothes when I did laundry days later.
I need to change my address
My address is 9608 east 39th street
For my hubby, but Unisex
My husband wanted to try this fragrance and he loved it, but I LOVE it for me even more. It has a very nice green opening, which is not overwhelming—more refreshing. The dry down is very clean and longevity is moderate. I love this scent for daytime & Office. Not offensive and just enough projection!
The notes were not good and smelled terrible
Literally hated this the first two or three times I wore it. Thought it smelled like roses, almost like an old lady. But after that I started realizing that I literally loved it and I no longer thought it smelled like roses so much as just intoxicating. It last all day, quite strong too, but not overpowering. It has become my favorite scent, coincidentally or not, right after Remarkable People, from the ELD'O as well. Get it, and keep wearing it even if you don't think you initially like it. It will change.
Unusual, lasts a long time, warm, love the smell of freshly-ironed sheets, Gets attention!
Not bad, not amazing. ELdO’s scents are always confusing to me. I wear this when I’m just looking to change it up.
Small very well i like to much
Heavy synth notes up front but has a pleasant soapy finish.
Great choice for date night 😁
Leans more to the feminine side but overall a good rose base fragrance
One of the best fragrances I've ever tried.
One of my favorite fragrances of all time I don't know how to describe it, but I have never met someone who did not love it!
smelled musty on me
I can't be too specific I just know that the smell is one that I find to be just okay. I do think others would like it as it does have a sharp twang to it.
Super orangy, love it
different, gets noticed
Such a fresh fragrance
Fresh, vibrant...for the mature nose
This just smells like old oranges to me
like but not love
this is a very unique scent and I appreciate the complexity and quality of this scent, but it's not a go to for me. I find myself preferring to reach for something else. if you do like the scent, I think you'll find that it's great for just about any occasion. the longevity isn't great on my skin. I get about 4 hours.
A real gem. It is unique and long-lasting. Just a few sprays and you are good to go. It has a real please uplifting smell. Sometimes I wear it when I am depressed work better than anything I know. One important note is that it has a sillage that is noticeable. Sillage is how the fragrance lingers after you have left the area. An example of sillage would be encountering a bad-smelling person and the lingering funk you can still smell them after you have left. Well, this one will leave people with a pleasant thought of you. A real connoisseurs pick and trust me; I must have the world's most extensive collection.
my girlfriend and I love this scent!
55 to 64
This was awful. I threw it away. I wouldn’t spray in my cat litter box. OMG!!!! So Bad
One of my all time favorites in Scentbird! If u like clean, distinguished scents, this is one for u!
Very clean but just a tinge too much warmth.
Could not stand the scent, unfortunately. Not for me.
My girlfriend said I smelled like an old grandma😬
Okay, this has become my signature scent. I have used the same handful of colognes for years and years, so for me to basically switch to using this one almost everyday, is a big deal. I have never smelled anything like this before and I can't get enough of it. I don't like wearing mainstream colognes or the ones you see at the mall, front and center. This is a unique scent that consistently turns heads. I was at an art show recently and a woman literally stalked me until she mustered up the courage to ask me what cologne I was wearing. She just went on and on about how great I smelled. She wasn't wrong. That said, I don't want a lot of people finding out about this cologne. LOL
Yep. I love that no one knows what it is nor the house it comes from. It’s a year rounder too. Glad you like !
Christian I totally agree man! I am a fragrance fanatic and I have never smelled anything like it and have become so hooked! I want more, a full bottle!
Nice combination of notes, with a very sophisticated, masculine dry down. However, the black pepper in the head/top note will KNOCK YOU OUT at first spray. WAY too much - almost sickening... Very nice patchouli in this one!
35 to 44
This is one of my absolute favorite scents. The depth and complexity achieved is astonishing! So longevity is there, three sprays will last me an entire work shift, however this one should definitely be a special occasion cologne. It will definitely leave an impression! The patchouly is a note that I normally have a strong distaste for however, the way it is blended and how it comes out In the base is absolutely perfect! Well done indeed!
Probably my favorite so far
Complex, peppery, and cool all at once. This is a winner.
love this scent
Not for me, but you have to try it to know for yourself
I received a lot of compliments left and right. Approximately two people didn’t really appreciate the smell, out of like 50 some people that said it smelled great. I think it’s a good choice for a majority of people to put on their subscription. If you don’t like it, that’s okay, everyone has distinct preferences.
I LOVE this one. Musky and delicious.
Very strong and unique smell. Lasts long
Not really sure how much I like it. On the one hand: it’s strong, unique, lasts long, and captures the attention of everyone in the room when you walk in. On the other hand, the smell is a little weird and I don’t know if I ever get used to it.
Its original but it really didn't wow me
The perfect, intense, long-lasting scent
I’m in love. The smell lasts forever, Abe dies by take much. It’s very blunt, and unapologetic. It’s the perfect Madeline smell, with just the right touch of floral.
25 to 34
Love this one
This is one of my favorite scents would purchase it if it were available on here
Just didn’t care for the smell.
35 to 44
Felt like an old man wearing this. Ive smelled this at the nursing home where my mother in law is. This gave me a headache after a while
35 to 44
It grows on you
For fall i enjoy this scent
35 to 44
smells good... great for daily wear...
