Heord is the seventh perfume from the house Parfums de Marly. It is classified as a woody - spicy composition.
One of the most accomplished racehorses (and prolific studs) of 18th century Europe, Herod was a horse of uncommon achievement descended from a famous line of Turkish warhorses. To honor him, Parfums de Marly has created a truly spectacular fragrance, one that combines robustly masculine tobacco, wood and patchouli notes with an alluring spice blend and a sumptuous vanilla.
Herod opens with an attention-grabbing spicy mix of cinnamon and peppercorns, and quickly introduces a resinous, sultry heart of incense and tobacco, combined with such smoky-sweet artistry that it makes our mouths water and pulses race all at once. In the base, the woodsier and earthier aspects are enhanced with rich patchouli and vetiver, while a creamy, delectable vanilla keeps things from ever getting too dark or deep. Rich enough to wear on a cold winter night but well-rounded enough for year-round, Herod is a luxurious addition to any gentleman's arsenal- and we think it would be drop-dead sexy on any lady who loves tobacco scents as well.
The Parfums de Marly fragrance collection, named after the famed French Marly castle, draws inspiration from the legacy of Louis XV and his love of breeding thoroughbred horses and creating perfumes. Each bottle reflects this rich heritage with an embossed crest and rich accents. Herod is a smoky, vanilla scent named after a famed stallion of the 18th century.

Not for me. Reminded me of some kind of burnt smell. Scent Split is good though.
This scent smelled amazing on my gf. It's unisex and would consider it for myself. It smells amazing and got better as it dried down. Highly recommend and worth the money.
New to niche fragrances, I've tried several samples of different brands during the winter months. Herod is simply one of the best and I highly recommend it. I see a bottle of it in my future.
