Lanvin L'Homme fragrance notes

Reviews of Lanvin L'Homme

This is the first perfume that I ever owned and I bought it at the age of 17. It is a major head turner and a massive hit with females of specific cultures.

I loved the smell of vanilla and the sandalwood didn't hurt either. I could only buy it once in Abu Dhabi because I couldn't find it in Dubai. It doesn't seem to be available in India either.

The perfect scent if you want to wear something formal.

Lanvin L'Homme Sport by Lanvin

An excellent daily-wear workhorse fragrance in the clean lavender/citrus genre. Lanvin L'Homme is 100% competent and never falters while delivering what is a quintessential version of the fresh aromatic masculine. Easy to wear, completely inoffensive, and conveying at all times a subject that is alert, approachable and tasteful, this fragrance is easy to overlook due to the abundance of similar fragrances within the genre, and nothing too 'exciting' in the note pyramid. However, here Morillas demonstrates the mastery which makes him renowned among perfumers. L'Homme begins with a powerful lime note of excellent longevity, its acidity cooled by a crisp, unsweetened spearmint. This transitions quickly to an aromatic, upbeat lavender that avoids soapy ostentatious detached formality as its accented with sage and cardamom. The musk in the base possesses just the right degree of warmth, and rather than detached as white musk can sometimes be, or "perfumey" as it often is, it feels human and approachable and blends well with the skin. Although the pyramid suggests sandalwood I get a middle of the road, woody vetiver, neither too grassy or rooty, but right in the center where it should be in this instance. Overall, L'Homme is an expertly composed men's fragrance, and something I think every guy over 21 could use in his wardrobe at one point or another.

Thumbs up and highly recommended as a blind buy unless the genre itself is just something you're not into.

Very citrus and spicy on first spray. 10-20 minutes later I smell the citrus deepening very nicely and the pepper/lavender kicks in. An hour or so later and I smell the woods and vanilla smoothing it all out. Not too strong throughout, it projects well and gets compliments. Extremely well constructed, and one of the better citrus/clean mens fragrances born from the 1990's. Better longevity would be nice, I get 4-5 hours tops. I like it immensely and at the price it's an excellent value.

I used to have a few bottles of this along the years.
Got a full bottle recently, and it's a rediscovery!
In fact, I'm wondering if the formula didn't change somewhat.
The citrus top seems more tamed, and the bottom rounder.
Overall, the scent has more body while still being light and clean.

Lanvin L'Homme is what squeaky clean smells like. At first you get a burst of aquatics with citrus. It just wakes you up immediately. The dry down is a soft lavender/spicy/minty fragrance that lingers throughout the day. It is perfect for the office since it is not loud. It is also a very nice and clean Spring/Summer daytime fragrance.

I instantly loved this fragrance. Mr Mookie has the note progression exactly right. I enjoy each stage, but the drydown of lavender folded in between Bergamot, Violetwood, and Amber is absolutely sublime. This elegant fragrance would be right at home in a wardrobe of the exclusive and expensive. As mentioned before, it's projection is understated after the opening and this seems to suit the overall personality of the scent just right. It is not very often that a fragrance can blossom among 3 very distinct stages without feeling synthetic, but Lanvin makes sense of it beautifully.
