Neutral Reviews of Antihéros by Etat Libre d'Orange

Total Reviews: 4
A minty, peppery blast of lavender is followed by a soft, powdery dry down, supported by musk and cedar. Pretty much a soliflore, taking after Caron's classic Pour Un Homme, or more specifically, its parfum take on that formula, Impact.

One can get the same effect by spending a few dollars on lavender oil, so why shell out almost a hundred for a 50 ml. bottle of Antiheros?

The classy Caron scent, softened further by a perfect vanilla balance, is for me the only choice in this scent genre.

Antiheros is good, just not good enough to make it unique.

caron pour un homme in another bottle... less content , less complex, less civet and more expensive.

This “unexpected superman” (as the Etat Libre d'Orange packaging calls it) is all lavender, all day. I can't make out any other notes. I mean, really nice lavender. Clean, bright, saturated, lavender, like your favorite linen spray on steroids. A guy who irons? That’s my kind of hero. I'll take Clark Kent over Superman any day. But all that lavender in the phone booth eventually makes me claustrophobic. In the end, it's just too much of a good thing.

In order to be the same as a lot of Parisiennes with great historical perfume experience, this Caron-like scent is good.

It`s a classic made under scandalious name :)
