Reviews of KL Homme

This fragrance opens to a bittersweet orange, amber, aldehyde, sharp lavender with some rosewood in the background. In the heart, the carnation, rose and geranium are the most prominent. The rosewood and amber are still noticeable in this stage, while the spiciness (cinnamon) comes into play and the orange begins to fade. As the floral begins to dissipate at the dry-down, I begin to notice the strong notes of castoreum and civet come into play, along with a lightly powdered vanilla.

KL Homme is a classic that would be best worn during the cooler months of the year and will last over 12 hours on your skin. Being an 80's fragrance, a little will go a long way.

Sweet and sour geranium rosewood and orange balsam. Stifling and monotonous. */*

Wish I still had my bottle...gave it away too quickly!

KL Homme is a pleasant, multi-faceted and smooth experience. It starts out with a spike of tanginess that blends into a leathery, amber and floral heart. As other reviewers note, it also exposes a mysterious, musky element nestled within that echoes classics like Versace L'Homme and a BIG favorite of mine, Aramis JHL (also discontinued, *sigh*).

Well made and worth a try!

Another Lagerfeld worth the hunt. The Adelehydic Citrus is
quite startling in it's effect, initially. It moves into the good stuff quickly. The Civet is there but is carefully groomed to spread it's charm gently.
Like it's brother it suggests a quiet elegance, dries down super smooth. Warm, Ambery and comforting for Fall and Winter.

KL Homme is a spicy oriental, and to me smells mostly like a sweeter, more amber-y, less spicy version of Pierre Cardin Pour Homme. It's smooth and rich, quite concentrated, and elegant. I get the similarites with JHL, but KL Homme is a bit lighter, with the carnation and geranium prominent in the heart. The aldehydes in the opening are front and center, but blended nicely with the citrus and lavender, rendering the whole effect quite natural rather than synthetic. To my nose, Pierre Cardin is more pleasing, but KL has its charm too.

H & R's Guide lists the notes as:

Top: Lemon, bergamot, rosewood, lavender, orange, aldehyde
Middle: Carnation, jasmine, geranium, fern, cinnamon, rose, patchouli, sandalwood, cedarwood
Base: Vanilla, benzoin, olibanum, musk, amber, civet

KL Homme opens with a very nice amber and orange duo leading to a smooth rosewood note that blends right into the opening accord. During the heart phase the rosewood remains as does the amber, now with the orange fading but still detectable while a supporting floral carnation and rose duo joins the party as well as some mild nutmeg-like spice. As the scent enters the dry-down the amber remains as the rosewood and floral notes dissipate, while a sheen-like slightly powdery vanilla joins in as well as a moderate amount of castoreum to give the base a bit of supporting weight. Projection is average and longevity is very good, with the scent lasting 10-12 hours on skin.

KL Homme is really one of a kind. Its dark orange juice gives a great idea of what the scent smells like, as it dominated by a soft orange and warm amber tandem at its core. The scent of the whole is just slightly sweet and powdery overall, never getting even close to becoming overly so on either count. Also it should be noted that KL Homme is very potent, so a little goes a long way providing excellent value. There are some notes in the official pyramid that are a bit misleading as I really do not smell a few of them, instead swapping in similar notes like animalic castoreum for the listed civet, and nutmeg spice for the cinnamon. That said, while I may find the official notes listing somewhat wanting, there is absolutely *nothing* wrong with the end result, however it was achieved. The bottom line is the sadly discontinued KL Homme smells absolutely fantastic and is definitely worth seeking out for trial and prospective purchase on the aftermarket, earning an excellent rating of 4 to 4.5 stars out of 5.
