    Genre: Chypre

    If Chanel Pour Monsieur, Eau Sauvage, and Givenchy Gentleman had a brawny younger brother, he’d be Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui: a more muscular, if less refined, citrus chypre who’d be comfortable in a leather jacket but a little awkward if you stuffed him in a suit.

    After a nicely balanced tart citrus and aromatic entrance, Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui settles into a classic citrus chypre accord whose leather and vetiver accents leave it feeling darker and heavier than its older peers. The extra weight persists into the mossy leather drydown, which offers an especially appealing warm animalic labdanum as its closing gesture. While it’s undeniably loud when compared to its elders, Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui never feels crude or bombastic, and its relatively loose, informal style makes it easier to wear than many other brawny 1980s masculines.

    Gangsters paradise

    Its a great deep masculine scent.
    Smokey,woody,leathery and very manly.
    A evening night out scent.


    If you spray it on your body you instantly get caught in a heavy, dense and deep masculine mist its fresh and spicy in the first 3-4 seconds and then the smokeyness comes in it puts a warm blanket of spices and leather around you skin.
    If its under your suit it lingers around your body projecting all away.

    Imagine this scene :
    A big gala evening in a dancehall in Old Havana in the mid 80's
    All people sit around in circled red leather couches with a reserved table in the middle where all drinks are on.
    Men and women in their 30's and 40's all dressed up in tuxedos and gala dresses some dance the salsa ,the smell of sigars, leather and rum in the air.
    In the background cuban trumpets playing cuban son music people get all heaten up because they celebrate weekend.

    Walking through this scene would definitely smell like Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui!

    Nothing smells like this. Its diffrent, its great its the perfect evening out scent for a classic south american or south european man.

    - huge projection and longevity.

    thumbs up!

    Pros: Bold and masculine powerhouse
    Cons:

    Princely Powerhouse

    Imagine if you can the scent of a man:

    These days not cool, definitely Old School,

    But if you like "class," don’t take a pass,

    Because this Pour Lui (applied sparingly)

    Will lift you to heights of manly delights.

    Long may it prosper, this Pour Lui de Oscar!

    One of The Best of the 80s...

    *This is a review of the vintage Oscar pour Lui.

    Oscar pour Lui (vintage) opens with a combination of bergamot citrus and subdued aldehydes, mixing with patchouli and cinnamon from its heart. At this point the fragrance leans on the sweet side of the spectrum with an almost honey-like underlying accord permeating its early development. As the fragrance enters its early heart the aldehydes and citrus die while the cinnamon and patchouli join carnation and cyclamen florals supported by oakmoss and soft leather from the base as the fragrance gradually turns less sweet. During the late dry-down the oakmoss remains though is just detectable, while slightly sweet sandalwood and clean musk send off the scent. Projection is very good and longevity is below average to average at about 5-6 hours on skin.

    Oscar pour Lui (vintage) is a great example of all the best things fragrance-wise of the 80s. It projects quite well though never coming off as harsh or repellant, sharing more than glancing similarities at times (especially early) with the exceptional vintage Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme. I can see Oscar pour Lui (vintage) working all-year round in just about any situation imaginable with its smooth and at times sweet cinnamon spiced leather and patchouli driven overall heart accord over a mossy woody backbone. It smells great and offers superb value even at its current after-market prices for vintage bottles, earning an "excellent" and highly recommended rating of 4 stars out of 5.

    Pros: Projects well without being annoying, smells superb and is extremely versatile.
    Cons: Longevity is slightly lacking.

    I find ODLRPL to be compelling, but rather unusual at the same time. There are strands of so many other aromatic fougeres within Pour Lui that it is very much a medley of seventies and eighties classics. It is certainly not handicapped by this fact, and it almost becomes the definitive representative of its era.
