Reviews of Hommage à L'Homme Voyageur

"Hommage A L'Homme Voyageur, a new invitation to travel with woody and ambery notes for an asserted man.
"Bergamot, Cardamom, Vetiver, Patchouly[sic], Amber, Moss."

(says the contents of the sampler card)

This wonderful men's EdT starts out with a pleasant, wet bergamot fruit note, kept bright with cardamom spice and strong herbal patchouli. There's a dark, grassy accord that creeps in, thanks to the vetiver and moss notes, warmed up by a nice, slightly aromatic ambery heart.

I get a woodiness from Hommage à L'Homme Voyageur, though I don't see any such note listed on the sample's card that I got. It's a dark, starchy wood (perhaps papyrus, as listed on the basenotes triangle above) - definitely not sandalwood, but like a lightened up cedarwood.

Overall, Lalique's Hommage à L'Homme Voyageur has moderate projection, very linear and behaved and livening up my senses with every sniff! (I see some similarities with Histoires de Parfums' This is Not A Blue Bottle 1.1 (2015), both having a nice aromatic spicy air that lingers like a good friend.)

Very nicely blended and a pleasure to wear casually or even for formal occasions.

The 3D bottle is blue as the tint of deep Ocean, blue like the waves of the Atlantic at night, blue like the Riband won by the Normandie, the ole French passenger liner to have broken the speed record for a transatlantic crossing... but that is all about the blue in this scent. Hommage Voyageur is not just another aquatic scent in the world, it is a story that is completely different from the original Hommage à l’Homme, it has way more in common DNA wise with Encre Noire than being a flanker of L'Hommage à L'Homme. It is a wonderfully crafted take on ashen spices, that feels utterly smart and luxurious, it is a dark, rich, and smooth uncompromisingly woodlike fragrance. A scent that powerfully revolves around three manly notes, with the woody, earthy and animalic elements in the foreground: patchouli, vetiver, and papyrus. Albeit they are part of its heart yet dominate the scene since the very beginning. The perfume hugs your skin with a fragrant and medicinal aroma of green cardamom and just a very little hint of bright and powdery bergamot, together they create a delicate balance of citrus, spice and sweet resinous blend. The opening here is superb.

Following this dynamic opening, things gently become carefully subdued and muted. Vetiver's woody, arid quality dominates, accented by papyrus earthy dryness. Nuances of patchouli and it's dark edge pierce through but never distracting from the overall composition. I pretty much get a dirty, dry, and sort of dusty patchouli, rounded out by smoky and leathery notes, with a cedar wood accord as well that adds its unmistakeable pencil sharpener and inky gleaming timbre almost present in Lalique trademark works.
Noteworthy, there is indeed something else that just hit me... I swear it saffron, like how it smells when you pick up the dried strands of that precious spice and inhale deeply! So captivating, this leaves me wondering whether saffron has been inadvertently omitted from the notes listed... otherwise, the perfumers did an astounding job recreating that accord with all the other notes! I know for sure that Nathalie Lorson, for instance, recreated the vanillic accord in Zara Deep Vanilla using other notes, but vanilla.

In the base, warm ambergris offers a touch of sensuality and a deep sweetness mirrored well with an albeit subtle and velvety vanilla note. This never becomes sweet, rather the amber and vanilla expertly round out the edges, adding to its depth and smooth feel. Oakmoss further embellishes the musky and rich earthy tonalities of the fragrance, pairing well with aforementioned vetiver. This mix-up of vanilla, papyrus, and moss is subtle, spicy and absolutely divine,

To me, this new extension to the Lalique line stands apart from its predecessor Hommage a l'Homme. They smell nothing alike in my opinion, which is a good thing. Same name, same bottle, yet each stands alone as a separate fragrance, neither leaning on nor referencing the other. Hommage Voyageur is a foreign journey into the Orient... generative, emotional, and open to discovery.

Lastly, to conclude, Hommage Voyageur is fairly linear and where this would perhaps be a criticism in most cases, it isn’t here as the fragrance smells so darn lovely that one really doesn’t want it to change much at all. Longevity is fine, I sprayed it on generously and after a few hours, I can still smell it. If, however, you are looking for a projection/sillage monster then this is not for you. This one is subtle and classy, intimate, like a whisper. Just perfect for work, I recommend this for cool seasons, spring and fall are ideal if you are looking for a non-floral, non-citrus, non-sweet cologne.

I get the designer-grade bergamot and the designer-grade parchouli, vetiver and papyrus. Basenotes lists amber in the base, but I smell ambrox that gives the whole composition that characteristic fresh "bleu" feel.

Quite good in its price bracket, excellent actually, but nowhere near as good as the original Hommage and on absolute terms it is a neutral rating from me.

I really thought I was gonna like this, but I don't. I should note I am not a big patchouli fan, and this fragrance is 75% patchouli. It's very similar to Tommy Hilfiger Loud for men.

I pretty much just get a dirty, dry, animallic patchouli, rounded out by a mossy base, with a cedar wood accord as well. It's boring, but it doesn't last long, much longer than Tommy Loud.

Whew! This is a serious one. I'm surprised Voyageur hasn't acquired the prestige of Encre Noire as I believe this is even better. Voyageur is a dark, rich, and smooth uncompromisingly woody fragrance. It's extremely well-done and presents an elegant, polished feel never lacking in depth or structure. Its vetiver is dark and fragrant when combined with the patchouli, but it's been rendered extremely smooth through the vanilla and amber in the base. This never becomes sweet, rather the amber and vanilla expertly round out the edges, adding to its depth and smooth feel. I would recommend this to anybody really looking for a woody fragrance, not necessarily a playful one either but one that is truly composed and confident. However it's equally important to point out that Voyageur is not lacking in heart--it's not an "unfriendly" scent or detached in any way. It just didn't come to play games. Completely worth the $35 you can find this for and I don't think people would bat an eye if it sold for $150 under a different name. Thumbs up.

This is a solid scent from the house of Lalique. It doesn't seem to have the correct bottling/branding IMHO. This has WAY more in common DNA wise with Encre Noire than being a flanker of L'Hommage à L'Homme. So those people may be disappointed or felt led astray. Of course you may forgive this error once you smell the juice itself. A winner across the board for sure. It is just odd enough to throw you off at first then as it drys it does smell like a nice soft and smoother version of Encre Noire. Good for casual or office wear. Worth the online price too (less than $35 US) for 100 ml. Enjoy!
