Reviews of Pour Un Homme

It took me a long time to arrive at Pour un Homme, it sounded simplistic. Lavender, vanilla? That's it? (that's not it but that's what it boils down to somehow) There was always something that seemed more exciting to be acquired, of course I knew of its reputation and pedigree yet bypassed it over and over. Well, I finally got a bottle (vintage) and the obvious beauty, class, quality made itself instantly clear. Sometimes a new addition to the collection becomes a favourite for awhile but PUH is a "Grand Parfum" without a doubt and belongs to the Pantheon for the 100 plus reasons listed below. Up there with the greatest, I wished I had known years ago..

Sharp and sour green herb mixture and vetiver is the opening. I get lemongrass too, not lemon and the other listed citrus fruit.

Lily of the valley and a faint, struggling lavender from the combination with the heart notes. Didn't wait for it to develop further.

If you're a guy who's into smelling like a man's man; a guy who wants everyone to know that he's the alpha pack leader, than this is most certainly not the fragrance for you.

But what a damned good fragrance it is!

Although there are a few notes in Pour un Homme, they aren't much more than peripheral supports to the lavender and vanilla. If you want a real-life example of what this smells like, open up a package of Pampers' baby diapers. If you've ever done that with any regular frequency, you will know exactly what I'm talking about. As others have mentioned, this is something that could be mistaken for air freshener or room spray, and that's not at all inaccurate. What differentiates this from Eau de Airwick is that this does not have any cloying, synthetic smell to it. No, this is superbly blended, and wonderfully composed. This is what those air fresheners are aiming to be.

Pour un Homme is the original aromatherapy product. You won't wear this and smell manly. You won't wear this and draw in lots of gals or guys due to its innate sexiness, as this is completely unsexy. What this scent is, is tranquil and calming. This is what you wear when you want to go out and feel like you're in your moment of Zen. Very relaxing, very soothing, and very soft. Wisps of baked goods, talcum powder...all things "home."

A beautiful scent that has stood the test of time. A reference piece for the collector, and a wonderful aromatherapy session for the wearer. There's no reason a fragrance collector should not own this or at the very least, try it out.

Thumbs up.

Lavender then Vanilla. Basically that's it in a nutshell. It took awhile for me to appreciate Caron Pour Un Homme's simple formulation but I like it. Great as a refresher after a shower or just when an uncomplicated scent will do. This has a fresh from the Barber Shop vibe. Sadly, I don't think the younger set will appreciate it.

Absolutely revolting. I mean truly awful.

Smells like piss water. No depth or character. I'm lost for words.

I have gone though about 600 ml's of this over the past three years, and now have the aftershave and deo stick as well. Recently, I was travelling for a conference and could only wear the same thing for five days, so this was it. A wonderful, reassuring and truly aromatherapeutic scent. The anisette/absinthe accord is incredibly uplifting, and the warm, velvety musk-tonka-vanilla base, , almost simulating a blond tobacco note at times with its hint of green from the persistent lavender, adds a grounding gravitas. Longevity is decent, but to return to the hotel room at mid-day, splash a bit of cold water on my face and reapply was a joy, almost equivalent to downing a stiff gin & tonic. Despite it's naturalism, this is a great fragrance to wear in the cold, grey city.

Side note: I sampled a lot of fragrances on this trip, including some terrific offerings from niche lines (Malle, Lutens, Le Labo, Byredo) that are harder to find where I live. Despite the ingredient quality and inventiveness of some of these compositions, I never felt that the (relatively inexpensive) Caron was a poor cousin; I was always delighted to return to my room and see it there on the bathroom shelf.
