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.

Lovely balance, mature sophisticated fragrance; this was a blind buy for me, and you all " knocked it out of the park" with this one. Excellent tobacco-ey blend, and worth the steeper price tag as compared to some of the others ( though FBO offers consistent value across the board)--well done.
Herod is smooth and manly, it gets attention and projects decent but a little goes a long way!
These scents kick. "Herod" is definitely a go to when hitting the scenes. Thanks FBO
Layers great with the soap and the perfume!!
Another winner in my opinion! Not yet sampled the original, but if it’s anything like this oil, I will definitely love it. I’m female, and recently realized I adore tobacco frags, and this is a really good one. Thanks to fragrantbodyoilz, I’m able to indulge that love of tobacco frags! Another winner👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽!
I absolutely love it! The scent is beautiful, I get many inquires as to what is it I a wearing. Projection and duration perfect but need I expect any less from FBO!
