    Genre: Fougère

    Lauder for Men starts out a little bit like Kouros on a leash. The two begin travel on parallel trails, but Lauder’s path receives more sunlight. Where Kouros has orange, Lauder has lemon; where Kouros has incense, Lauder has crisp aromatics; and where Kouros has its titanic, beastly accord of civet and urinous honey, Lauder makes do with just the honey. In short, everything about Lauder for Men is a bit brighter and bit more sparkly.

    After a half hour, Lauder’s trail takes off in a different direction, as a big, spicy tobacco accord presses into the foreground. By the time its central movement is established, Lauder has moved away from Kouros and pulled up next to…Havana! That’s right – it’s hard for me to smell Lauder’s spicy tobacco fougere heart without immediately thinking of the recently revived classic from Estée Lauder’s own men’s division. Once again, Lauder for Men is the lighter, brighter scent, but I smell a strong family resemblance – one that only intensifies as Lauder for Men approaches its pungent mossy tobacco drydown.

    I’m not insinuating that Lauder for Men is a Kouros/Havana wannabe. Indeed, I believe that Lauder for Men stands as a great fougère fragrance on its own. Not least among its merits is its comparative ease of wear. The sheer immensity of Kouros and Havana place limits on their everyday use. Not so the more modestly scaled Lauder for Men. What ultimately puzzles me about Lauder for Men is how such a fine fragrance can be so little known or discussed. Frankly, it’s a hidden treasure, and probably one of the most underrated and under-appreciated scents I know of.

    Lauder for men opens nice.

    As mentioned before clean open citrussy.

    Longevity is poor or average depends on skintype.

    I tried this now the second time i really dont know how someone thinks this is a premium product.

    After 15 minutes it leaves a tiny sweetness close to the skin and thats it!

    This is nothing special.

    *This is a review of vintage Lauder for Men

    Lauder for Men (vintage) opens with a standout top note of gin-like juniper berries that are the first to arrive in full force in an all-out nasal assault before they quickly disappear. The juniper berries quickly transition to the heart notes including lavender-like clary sage, joined by a prominent carnation with a sanitized jasmine-like lily-of-the-valley undertone and hints of slightly orange-like coriander spice. All of the heart notes take a back seat to a tremendously strong oakmoss note that rises all the way from the base as it dominates the scent's development from near top to bottom without obscuring the other components too much. Supporting the dominant oakmoss in the base through the dry-down as the heart notes slowly recede is a slightly sweet sandalwood that balances the composition to a degree. Projection and longevity are both excellent to exceptional.

    Lauder for Men (vintage) is a brilliant powerhouse of a scent that is the 80s to the extreme. It is quite potent and can easily be over-applied to levels that will clear rooms in record time, but when used in smaller doses it exudes strength and power from its wearer. This is one of those kinds of scents I can see a boardroom exec wearing if they want to show "the others" who is the boss. The oakmoss used to pair with the carnation heart is amazing, and I doubt you can find scents nowadays that can replicate it as the regulations are too strict on the levels that can be used. As such, Lauder for Men (vintage) is one of those rare powerhouse aromatic fougere finds from the past that folks should snatch up while you still can, earning an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5.

    On my skin this is a very light herbal fougere that evaporates very quickly, no matter how heavily I dose myself with it.

    It is certainly pleasant, but it does nothing for me.

    Had this back in High School. Liked it then. I brought another bottle many years later. Man, was that a mistake. Couldn't believe I actually wore that mess. Surprised to see so many positive reviews.

    I can't add much more to the discussion of Lauder. Another winner on the masculine side of the aisle, Lauder for Men is a well-crafted shapeshifter that should be better known and appreciated by the broader community. It starts off as a citrus chypre in the Boucheron / Cerutti 1881 camp and morphs into a potent and aromatic swagger fragrance in the Kouros / Lapidus manner. It even works in warmer climes, if judiciously applied.
