An impressively smooth composition. Iris and vanilla are prominent, supported by sandalwood amongst others. The sweetness is checked by a subtle spiciness which prevents this from entering the "bubble-gum" territory of some modern offerings. With its harnessing of woods, Arpege Pour Homme even allows the wearer slight glimpses into the previous two decades prior to its release. All this while maintaining a very pleasant modernity, never overly-done but with strong performance.

A little too mature and macho-like cologne smell at the beginning, but the drydown isn't half bad. Once this settles down it becomes a soft, spiced-woody-vanilla that's quite interesting.

I can't think of anything similar but it's somewhere in there with the creamy, spicy, woody vanilla scents.

Projection is good in the opening but the drydown is only a skin scent. Lasts all day.

Iris,spice,vanilla,sandalwood goodness. Had to be discontinued cause it is good.

I someone asks me what is THE Oriental fragrance I would point to this. Not Shalimar.

This is Shalimar Pour Homme but better.I am surprised it was released this century. No wonder it flopped.

Try to get it while you still can.

Similar to Burberrys for Men (1992), but no (or less) mint, and there's a wood note here that's not great, but that adds a contrast to the ambery sweetness and makes it interesting to sample.

Sweet and slightly spiced vanilla. Reminds me of Michael Jordan Legend and little bit. Not bad, just a little too sweet for me.

WONDERFUL scent from Lanvin - a shame that it was discontinued. I purchased a bottle from a local Lord and Taylor's store over ten years ago, and still to this day, Arpège doesn't disappoint!

The interplay between pink pepper, lavender, neroli, and jasmine is quite pleasant. It is classy, not loud nor cloying, and mellows out nicely with the woody and the vanilla base notes. And the bottle is well-designed and unique.

Not easy to find nowadays except online, Arpège pour Homme is a treasure to behold and worth a try.
