    Genre: Leather

    “Wham, bam, thank you ma’am!”

    The harsh top notes remind me of Maître Parfumeur et Gantier's tough-guy Parfum d'Habit, but they pass very quickly. Patchouli and clove are obvious, along with a very musty leather and a boozy note that must represent the "cognac" in the note pyramid. This guy rolls over and fall asleep FAST. Within minutes Je Suis un Homme transforms into the faintest of patchouli skin scents, with just a trace of cloves and cinnamon. "Je Suis Un Wimp" is more apt, if you ask me.

    Classic theme, modern variation

    People speak about this as citrus cologne, but for me this is a leather scent foremost.
    It starts with very classic and clean lemon. It feels soft, not like cleaning product. After a moment I usually smell clear bidagree note, not far a way from note in Bidagree concentree by Malle. Sometimes I notice the cognac note. Usually not.
    Then there is the leather. I think it's a bit similar to leather in Rien. Very serious and dry. The gloves give some warmness and almost bring something like body odour to it.
    In my mind Je suis un homme is brown leather with some grey hue. Sometimes I notice something very dark and animalic lurking behind the leather. It makes it more intresting.
    It is the most masculine fragrance from Etat Libre d'Orange. It is clearly a modern interpretation of a very classic theme. For me this is the most wearable perfume in every day life from this house.

    Pros: Masculine, classic, affordable

    Opens very sharp with citrus, bergamot, and also slightly boozy with the cognac accord (perhaps parched woods and vetiver) which seems to dominate. Refined, somewhat aloof, somewhat old-school. Cloves and spices in the dry down warm things up a little bit as the leather emerges--dry and dusty, but never quite dominating. Bergamot lingers, as does citrus in the form of astringent pith, rather than fruit or zest. Things are pretty stable from here on, so, all told, on me this is a citric, slightly spicy, and astringent leather/cognac. The cognac seems to outweigh the other elements by just a tad. It projects well and is long lasting. Oddly, I do not sense any animalic values at all. Perhaps warmer weather would bring these out.

    Amazing scent. It opens with exactly the citrus cologne burst you would expect Napoleon to wear (a bit like an Annick Goutal), but then transforms into something completely different. The dry down evolves into something that becomes part of you. It smells at times spicy, some moments animal, and others pure pheromones. This is a great modern take on the colognes of old, and I can see this rapidly becoming a go-to for me.

    This is Imperial Opoponax lounging on a leather sofa smoking an Indonesian clove cigarette. Which probably makes it sound more interesting than it is. This is Old Reliable rather than Take Me On The Carpet NOW; wears y-fronts not a jock strap – more’s the pity. The drydown where a rich frankincense-heavy accord banishes the candied orange of the opening is a marked improvement.

    Few instants after the first blast and over  my mind jumps a reminiscence of the original Vetiver Guerlain, the power of hesperides is notable and on the side of bergamot, lime and orange i catch a touch of not listed vetiver (the herbs and the following woodsy notes produce probably that effect), cloves, cinnamon, a bit of laundry detergent and a whiff  of incense. The olfactory sensation of the last note is may be brought to mind by the notable chord of cloves and cinnamon with its dustiness, anyway this conventional citrusy and angular opening introduces a certain level of dust that i don't dislike at all. I detect the boozy vibe of spices that are macerated and liquorous. The smell soon evolves towards a sort of smoother and leathery base that manteins the dusty pungency of spices-incense and the citrusy mould of the orange. I don't smell a particular testosterone feel, just an averagely attractive  leathery and musky outcome with an orangy and liquorous temperament and with the bold touch of patchouli. A traditional beast, classy in execution but a bit too faint in duration.
    Ps. I've tested it again after months and have to say that the musky-leathery dry down is more animalic and pheromonical than i really expected. Really masculine.
