    Balenciaga pour Homme by Balenciaga

    Powerhouse Fragrance? Check.
    Monstrous sillage? Check.
    Outstanding drydown? Check.
    All-day longevity? Check.

    Oh, yes, and one more thing:
    Smell good? Check.

    Balenciaga PH is one of those "old school" fragrances that have been abandoned in the current mindset of so many parfum houses. It's an all out, full bore, pedal to the metal masculine scent - no mistaking this for some weak-kneed "fresh" fragrance. Right out of the bottle, it overwhelms with a multitude of spicy essences. (Careful!! Do not overapply!). Then it starts to settle down and becomes a gentler, sandalwood dominated affair, enhanced by just enough amber and oakmoss. Very distinctive annd certainly worthy of my upward-pointing thumb.
