About Bulgari pour Homme

The man's musk! Sparkling citrus notes merge with tea notes into a musky skin scent that lasts and lasts. A very intimate fragrance. [AN]

Reviews of Bulgari pour Homme

You're entering an office building for a possible business deal. You have an appointment with one of the ceos, but he's delayed, so you have to wait for a while. You take a look around.

A clean building with tall white walls. The sun enters the building through the roof of glass. People are friendly and smile at you.

A professional in his early 30s, wearing a slimfit chino and a perfectly tucked in, crisp white shirt with vertical blue lines. Although you don't see his shoes, you know his medium brown belt matches them perfectly.

His hair is blond to light brown. He looks like he knows what he's doing. He looks serious, but still friendly.

Don't worry about that talk with the ceo, you already know it. Employees like this get the job done. Easily.

This professional is polite, friendly and calm. But he's serious. Maybe a little too serious. You'll never see him in a pub. He rather enjoys the monthly diners with his parents and sister.

That's what I smell in Bvlgari Pour Homme. A very mild and friendly scent for a very friendly guy.

But it lacks some character. It's clean and crisp, but a bit dull.

Having said that, it's an excellent scent for those who like to fly under the radar. While it's friendly, it definitely isn't too sweet. Rather clean and crisp.

I wouldn't wear this, but I can appreciate it.

If I had to rate Bvlgari Pour Homme I'd gave it a neutral...UNDER certain conditions...if this were a $15 fragrance.I got lucky when I got a 3.4oz bottle at $35 from a store closing up and selling off their stock...this goes more commonly for late forties in dollar range.The dollars just aren't there with this fragrance,even at $35....

It's very weak...others will use the word 'subtle' to dodge around the dollar cost and avoid the topic altogether.If this were a $10 fragrance though and it were weak?...people would say 'figures it's a $10 fragrance'and actually call it weak.This was a 5-6 spray deal and low projection.3rd or 4th hour this became hard to detect at all.

It's a clean and conservative fragrance so it is wearable.It's a little green and citrusy clean.Bitter from tea with a little peppery edge in there.There's a 'fuzzy sweater' vibe to this fragrance-interesting but a little off being this is a spring/summer scent and this puts a little winter wear out there.But the tea and pepper I could see emphasizing a little fall and winter to support this sweater note.I never catch the musk initially in spray or developing in the dry down and is pretty inconsistent.Basically it hides out in the blend and farts out musk randomly.I wouldn't really call the musk sensual because it veers in the direction of old,cheap,and synthetic fragrances producing a 'laundry musk'...musk mixed with a dryer sheet note or in this case that sweater note.

Shortly put if you threw this fragrance back into the 1970's and it didn't bare the Bvlgari name? it would be a $10 fragrance today.It's more retro than modern and I don't mind that.As a cheapie it fills the gap of a pleasant but cut and dry/non complex daily fragrance.It would be liked today but not even the most imaginative thing from the 70's a mere $25 can buy in complexity and strength.

Light, green, airy, citrusy opening. The drydown for me is a peppery tea that smells clean and crisp.

Smells like a versatile spring or summer scent that would work well casually or dressed up.

I get good projection for the first 3-4 hours and then it sits closer to skin for the remaining longevity which is around 7-8 hours.

Bvlgari pour Homme, composed by Jacques Cavellier and released in 1996, is an aromatic citrus fragrance, underpinned by musk. Bvlgari has since added two fragrances to this range - Extreme and Soir. This is undoubtedly the most beautiful collection of masculine fragrances by Bvlgari, and each one is a play on tea. Bvlgari's romance with tea in perfumes begins with the now iconic Bvlgari Au Parfumee The Vert, composed by J.C. Ellena in 1992. Since then, tea has been a signature note for this brand, incorporated successfully in many compositions in the 90s and early 2000s.

Bvlgari pour Homme begins with a subdued bergamot, with hints of florals and other citruses. Very soon the tea note comes to the fore, abstract yet very reminiscent, and alternating between leafy green and smoky black. The florals harmonise the tea note, and a smooth, soft musk note is the string that binds lightly all the elements together. This is the fresh musk I appreciate: clean, soft, very slightly sweet, yet far removed from any laundry detergent association. The musk is dealt with a light hand so as not to overwhelm. The tea-musk accord is the centrepiece of the composition, and dominates from start to finish, from a refreshing opening to a comforting dry down.

Bvlgari pour Homme is very muted on my skin, though duration is about adequate from a generous application. I am partial to the Extreme flanker which is stronger, greener, and has a faint zing of ginger. While pour Homme doesn't work for me, this is recommended to anyone looking for a fresh, balanced tea scent that is soft and discreet.

3/5 (neutral)

Tea, citrus, woods and oakmoss, in a summer-friendly and subtle delivery. Undoubted masculinity has never been so understated. Highly refreshing. Looking forward to a fuller review in time, but right now, thumbs up.

Tea, bergamot and musk - you can't go wrong, really. That would be my main criticism, the fact that it's so darn likable. I usually like my smells a lot more edgy, so I was surprised how much I love in. It's the most wonderful, lovely scent there is. It makes me feel in love. So perfect, so balanced, and so downright wearable - every season, every part of the day. If you're a little shy about smelling too weird, this one's for you, after all, we can't all wear Encre Noir or Yatagan. Yes, the longevity is lousy. The good news is, you can spray it as often as you like. I keep a bottle in the office and one at home. I get a lot of pleasant reactions and, well, what's wrong with being liked?
