    *This is a review of vintage Capucci pour Homme

    Capucci pour Homme opens with a nose tingling sharp lemon and green petitgrain tandem with a mild supporting herbal accord. As the composition moves to is early heart the lemon and mild herbs remain as the lemon turns less sharp, with gentle oakmoss rising from the base coupling with moderate aromatic lavender as joint support. During the late dry-down the lemon and herbal aspects vacate as the composition turns slightly musky and woody with leather-like labdanum taking over as star through the finish. Projection is average and longevity excellent at well over 12 hours on skin.

    Capucci pour Homme is one of those compositions that is extremely pleasant smelling, making it very difficult to over-spray. The composition has been likened by many to Channel pour Monsieur, but honestly I don't smell much of a similarity between the two. To my nose it is much closer to vintage YSL pour Homme, with what can best be described as a mutual sweaty herbal lemon accord. No, the two are not the same, becoming all the more clear as the herbal lemon morphs to leathery labdanum and smooth musky woods in Capucci pour Homme, but their respective first halves of development definitely occupy similar space. In short, Capucci pour Homme is a very impressive, relatively light, easy to wear composition, making it great for just about any occasion imaginable year-round. The bottom line is the discontinued vintage Capucci pour Homme is a great offering from the house that should appeal to fans of old school compositions, vintage YSL in particular, earning it an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 and a strong recommendation. Vintage and original formula bottles can be found on the aftermarket for under $1 per ml making Capucci pour Homme a good blind buy candidate.

    Flabbergasted at all the love for this one. One of the strongest most synthetic openings I've encountered. No dry down here, this one WEARS down to to a less than average burnt citrus, patchouli mishmash of a base. The toxic, pungent opening lingers and lingers in the wear down. This one is simply horrible. 0 out of 5.

    I bought Capucci Pour Homme back in the 1980's and I loved it. After many years I bought it once again. I did not remember how it smelled back then. Now, the initial spray was very strong citrus with alcohol. But the dry down is herbal, amazing and very elegant. I love fresh citrus fragrances and this one will be one of my favorites.

    The top notes are a winner: lime, bergamot and a good dose of petitgrain giving a fresh and bright impression. Jasmine and lavender arrive in the drydown, and later on some cistus with a faint patchouli. The base is a non-event on my skin; it is the beginning that is very nice. Limited silage and projection, and less that three hours longevity on my skin. Nice in summer, classic in style and mature.

    A classic scent, for better or worse

    Capucci is a classic composition that will always make me think of colognes from the 30's-60's in general. Those that didn't take the barbershop route often went the petitgrain/citrus/moss way, like Dunhill and Chanel Pour Monsieur. But whereas Dunhill is suave and elegant, and CpM is clean and friendly, Capucci strikes me as more stiffly professional. The dry rigidity is a little off-putting, and it does steer a little too close to the harsh citrus edge of English Leather. This one's not really my speed but I do like it.

    Pros: Nostalgic, well-blended
    Cons: Dated and a little varnishey at the top

    I'm still on the fence about Capucci Pour Homme. I had high hopes based on the reviews, but to me it is far less citrusy/herbal than it is woody/leather. It is definitely an old school, refined fragrance, one that I can imagine an older Italian gentleman wearing in his study in the evenings. It is extremely DRY and powdery rather than fresh and crisp to me. Some clue as to the thought behind the fragrance may be the box: an image of bird's eye maple wood (I believe), something which might be used to make a humidor for cigars. I bought and tried this in Summer, so I will save this for a winter evening and see if it works better for me.

    UPDATE: I have tried this in the cooler days of October, and this is definitely a winner for the cooler months. I am still not overly fond of the really dry opening, but I remedy that by layering a fresh and juicy spritz of 4711. The middle and drydown with this combo is fantastic, warm and sexy.
