    Helmut Lang Men information

    This seems to have a buttery musky type scent. Created for top designer Helmut Lang by Procter & Gamble. The bottle looks simplistic but stylish.

    (Helmut Lang EDC, its discontinued so I bought a small sample from The Perfumed Court)

    There is nothing about this scent that offends me. It has a powder/vanilla theme, but nothing else to make it that interesting. Other reviews talk about florals and wood....I did not get any of that. I think this works better for the ladies. I will finish my sample eventually but I would not buy any more.

    Genre: Citrus

    Sprightly grapefruit and sage top notes donít quite mask the raw alcohol in Helmut Langís top notes, but given a couple of minutes the sage expands to join an understated herbs and white musk accord whose steamy shower ambience fits easily alongside the almost exactly contemporary Mugler Cologne. Itís an abstract, monochromatic skin scent that sustains an air of quiet cleanliness in a linear manner for a couple of hours before it fades away. This sort of scent is no longer all that novel or exciting, but it does what it sets out to well enough. Me? Iíd probably go for the Mugler Ė itís cheaper, itís easier to find, and strikes me as having a bit more character.

    Heavenly Powdery Musk

    This perhaps isn't the most complex of fragrances but it doesn't really matter: once you've sprayed it you find yourself immersed in a gentle cloud of powdery sweetness. It has a gentle floral musk quality to it as well and I just can't find fault with this fragrance.

    I bought a 100ml bottle immediately after the first time I sprayed it in a department store and I was horrified to discover it was discontinued a few years later; it was my efforts to track down further bottles on-line that really heightened my interest in fragrance.

    I still have a little of that original bottle left and fortunately I have managed to obtain three 100ml backups in the last couple of years.

    One of my all-time favourites and the fragrance that inspired my name.

    Pros: Creates a powdery aura that makes your world a better place.
    Cons: Discontinued."

    Helmut Lang edc opens with a combination of floral lavender and powdery heliotrope which remains throughout. The floral aspects couple with a very light and easy to wear musk that is not really animallic at all. Hints of jasmine, patchouli and sandalwood in the base add just a very small amount of sweetness to the scent. Projection is average and longevity is above average (and quite long for an edc).

    Helmut Lang edc's scent immediately reminds me of a cross between baby powder and Johnson's baby oil. This is not really a bad smell, but the very fresh powdery/oily nature while eminently wearable is quite linear and more than a bit of a letdown for me after experiencing the great heights of the suede leather king Cuiron from the same brand. I feel Helmut Lang edc is certainly inoffensive enough for just about anyone to wear (and very unisex), but if I want to smell like baby powder or baby oil they can both be acquired for far less cost than the relatively lofty prices Helmut Lang edc is going for on eBay nowadays due to its discontinuance. I can't really give this a thumbs down as it is pleasant enough, but I definitely do not recommend a buy and it is not my cup of tea at all. I give Helmut Lang edc a very average 2.5 stars out of 5 for the scent, but much lower on the value scale.

    Helmut Lang EDC have always been a very special fragrance for me. Since the first time I bought a bottle back in 2000, it was love at first sniff.

    Helmut Lang was a visionary stylist who was far ahead of his time and, during the late nineties he have been one of the most innovative designers on the planet (just like Comme Des Garcons and very few others). His style was very minimalistic and austere but, at the same time, it never restulted aseptic, cold or even simplicistic. It was the most simple example of innovation. In this context, Helmut Lang EDC prefectly reflects the brand's style with an appearantly simple blend of clean musk, woods and soft florals. What makes of it an outstanding composition is an overall powdery, sort of buttery vibe, that while giving it an incredible amount of personality, it never results overdone, heavy or challenging. Soft lavender and minimalistic floral patterns serve as perfect refinements while herbs preserve the fragrance from becoming overly sweet. Slightly leaning towards the barbershop type of fragrance yet incredibly and unquestionably modern. Simple with a twist.

    Just like Helmut Lang's clothes, EDC wears comfortably, easily and feels incredibly versatile but it's tremendously distinctive. Recalls of freshly laundered white shirts with tiny collars and hidden buttons, unbottoned suits wore with no tie, well trimmered beards. A tribute to minimlistic elegance as opposed to vulgarity, ostentation and unnecessary frills.

    Want to smell clean? There's nothing like Helmut Lang EDC.

    Unfortunately, since the Prada gourp involved Helmut Lang, they immediately discontinued this gem and devoided the brand of its former brilliance. Now, if you want a bottle of EDC, you have to be ready for a big ticket splurge.

    When I say barber, you say shop!

    Barber!

    no?

    Allrighty, I have samples of both this and Cuiron, and I know that Cuiron is fantastic just from smelling the vial, but Helmut Lang needed a full days wearing. Boy, was I treated to a wonderful surprise. This here fits in with all of the Gendarmes, Mugler Cologne, Original Vetiver, and cK be. Am I forgetting any? And although it fits in, it is unmistakeably unique. There is a solid, potent, soapy, musky barbicide base with citrus, mint, vanilla, and tonka swimming around in it. I'm kind of surprised at how both complex and simple this is; somehow it manages to be mature and distinct while being fresh and clean.
