Mauboussin Homme by Mauboussin - One is initially treated to a fresh lavender and bittersweet bergamot concoction. Lavender infuses its herbal, floral freshness, with a tinge of smokiness, and commingles with the peppery and orangey bergamot. Rosemary showers the refreshing brew with its camphoraceous and faintly terpenic facets. Transitioning to the heart, herbaceous sage and spicy cinnamon veil the refreshing opening with their unusal pairing. Patchouli diffuses its woody greenness with an attendant grassy and slightly camphorous sensation. Segueing to the base, the rich patchouli is embraced by a creamy and balsamic sandalwood as well as the woody semi-sweetness of vanilla. An alluring warm and fur-like musk, with a touch of powder, flutters about. An inviting drydown ensues. This well-blended composition is somewhat dark and sensuous. However, regrettably, given its rather sparse density, its projection and longevity are both limited and subpar.
