I just got this cutie, and it's put me in a good mood. Eau D'Hermes may be my all-time favorite fragrance, and I've never tried this version.

It is fantastic: luscious and with a more prominent civet note compared to, for example, the copper top version where the cumin stands out much more.
Simply extraordinary orchestration and balance!

Is the copper cap the newer stuff? I never know with these iterations lol

Right now if nothing has changed, the version with the black cap is sold.
Previously the version with transparent cap was produced.
Before the transparent cap there was the copper cap ... in the late 90's and early 2000's I think.
This above version I think corresponds to the 90s, special editions that they made for several years.
In the 80s it was sold with a black/gray cap.

The last 3 in particular, for me, are the best ones :)

I just bought this bottle.
More than to show what I have bought, it is to ask you if anyone knows this bottle? It's the first time I've seen ... It cost me 25 USD and I haven't thought about it, for that money I run the risk ... let's see how it smells ...

I have a few of those. That's the original issue of Santos, and it's the refill for the "luxe" metal spray container:

Sure thing. With Santos, the distinctive typeface used for the name of the fragrance is what lets you know it's first formulation. So, you have the good stuff! I almost wore mine today—perhaps tomorrow evening.
I have that same 1st edition bottle, as well as a 2nd edition.1st is out of this world, really good. 2nd i like a lot also.
