    Default Patou Pour Homme!

    OK, I finally bit the bullet and purchased a 10ml decant of the famous Patou Pour Homme. It's being shipped out today.

    In the meantime, I'd love to hear from you guys with your thoughts or comments about PPH, which appears to be one of the most revered men's fragrances of all time. Get me excited!

    You should be excited. It's the best I ever smelled, but that's me. Even though it's a 29 year old designer frag, it's like all the stars lined up when Kerleo made this juice.

    My favorite designer men's fragrance, by miles. I have yet to find anything in its genre that touches it.

    It's so expensive I haven't gone to the effort of chasing more down, but I went through a bottle of it last year.

    Is there anything that to you is nearly similar to Patou Pour Homme?

    Not really bro. I wish there was. Maxim's PH gives a slight glimpse of Patou at a certain stage of development, but it's not a replacement. Nothing can replace it, not even De Nicolai New York.

    Patou pour Homme, I own it and wear it every now, and then. I consider this to be more of a formal fragrance, and as formal fragrances go I think there there are better scents. I think JHL is a better formal fragrance also Dunhill 34, Derby, Heritage EDP, Mouchoir de Monsieur to name a few. Is PpH a great fragrance? For sure, but as you can see I clearly think It's not the only game in town. IMHO

    Has Heritage ever been reformulated? If I were to purchase a new bottle today is it the same juice as in 1992?

    I just wore Patou Pour Homme Privé a few days ago and fell completely in love with it. Haven't tried the original, though.

    I've been a cologne guy since the early 1960's...long time, lot's of colognes.

    But I never ever buy the same bottle twice...except for Patou ph...I went I bought a second bottle...this was years ago but I liked it then that much.

    I recently smelled it again as a sample & remember why I loved it so much.

    I'm glad I had the chance to sample it once. (for free no less) Just smells like something rare.

    Patou PH? Nah, nothing much..so-so. You better send it to me.

    I revisit my sample of this (and knize10) every now and then, just to see if I'll wake up and get "it" one day. Still don't get it. Smells like paper when it's on fire.

    No. It´s reformulated but still good. Vintage Heritage can easily be found on Ebay.

    Very much a case of "don't know what ya got til it's gone" for me. I really liked it and it was probably my favorite for a period. I stopped wearing it because I simply moved on to other frags. about 6 or 7 years later, I rediscovered a bottle and realized what a truly great frag it was. Wore it til I finished it then went to buy more and voila! It was nowhere to be found. It was my first experience with a discontinued frag. I tried to replace it but nothing ever smelled close enough to satisfy me.

    This may be loads of build up for someone who has never smelled it. You'll probably expect fairies to fly out and tickle your balls or something. The truth is, it's a frag. It's a damn good one, but still just a frag. True nothing else quite captures it, but it is not a wholly unique scent. Allure has moments that remind me of Patou PH. So does Opus 1870, Minotaure, Pour Monsieur, and even Pure Malt. They are just moments though.

    Don't expect to be bowled over at first; you've smelled things like it before. Just be ready to appreciate the subtle development, quality feel and unique combination of notes. And whatever you do, don't use it up too fast!

    All frags are truly subjective. To me, JHL, Dunhill, MdM and all the rest can't hold the match that lights the candle as far as Patou PH is concerned.

    Yet, there are frags here who's virtues are extolled regularly, yet, when I tried them, all I could think of was WTF is THIS?

    That's the beauty of fragrance.....and thank God we don't ALL like the same things. There would NEVER BE ENOUGH to go around if that were the case.

    I wore this again the other day. I always love it and it is never a bad choice to wear it. It is beautiful.
    Every time, some aspect bowls me over. What really struck me on this wearing was the quality of the florals, especially the jasmine..

    It's Olympian because it uses prime materials, because Kerleo is a master technician and aesthete plus he really had an inspired moment. I love how Patou transcends the boundaries of perfume "genres" effortlessly (which neither Heitrage or New York do), how it is truly unique in smell, yet not an anti-perfume, such as Secretions Magnifiques, but eminently wearable. I think its mythical status is absolutely deserved, not just scarcity-induced. A men's scent of such imaginativeness, quality AND wearability comes about once in a decade at best.
