About Lanvin L'Homme

Blue bottle, funky lid, underrated. Go out and try it. Fresh, cool and different.
Its creator, Alberto Morillas, compares the scent to an elegant white shirt: "Fresh and clean when you put it on in the morning, comfortable all day, masculine."

Lanvin L'Homme fragrance notes

Reviews of Lanvin L'Homme

On my skin this just smells confused and undistinguished. Not unpleasant but quite unmemorable. I think you can remember a good scent in your imagination; not with this one. When you can buy a scent for £20 for 100ml from a house like Lanvin you know it hasn't been a success. Best thing about it is the smart bottle which looks good on a bathroom shelf - where it will gather dust.

Blind buy. The aquaticness in it is OK but as a whole it's too orangy and at the same time too spicy.

The intense blasts of pepper are off putting.

Even if this would be toned down, it would lack the citrus that suits this genre of fragrances. The more recent 'Lanvin l'Homme Sport' is better in this regard.

Other than that this one's just too rough of a mixture.

The notes are too contrasting and there's nothing there too make them blend in with eachother better. I don't get any vanilla nor lavender at all nor could it have saved it. Not for me, more for those with a love for pungent. Or those with crude taste.

The 'Sport' version is more mellow and a bit better all round.

Summer scent only! Didn't like this at first but it grew on me and i totally got it. It was a really good go to right out of the shower

There are only 2 EDT's one needs in their scent wardrobe. Lanvin L'Homme for day and Lanvin Avant Garde for evening. L'Homme is what natural is. Soft, pure, refreshing. It is not a celeb endorsed, drugstore sold harsh mix of chemicals. It is natural and what the human body responds to. Lemon,mandarin is the opening. Subtle. It graduates to a clean linen freshness; hence, the crisp white shirt analogy. Perfect for the office. All understated. Buying this at a good price is only the cherry on top.

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.

UPDATE: I think there's a place for L'Homme and it's the type of scent that a lot of guys might like to own one of. The only caveat, in my opinion, is that it's ultimately kind of boring. It's totally competent and executes well, but it's not the most exciting or memorable scent out there. Use it when you feel like blending in and smelling clean.
