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'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?

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.

Exceptional scent
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.

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.

Really interesting
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.

Orange!
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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Out Standing
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.

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

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!

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!

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.
