    Default Costume National Homme

    This sounds like another must sniff.
    Especially considering the nose is Dominique Ropion!

    I'm looking forward to it too...although I find some of Ropion's work a bit crude (a la Amarige), but when he gets it right, he really gets it right!

    "CoSTUME NATIONAL HOMME is the traveller of a symbolic metropolitan jungle which seems made of emotions. He loves sobriety and he likes to surround himself with unique items, which reveal a deep research in quality and design. His style is essential and innovative, however he never forgets rock & roll energy. He combines elements apparently in contradiction, creating a new balance between night and day, severity and transgression.

    He is seductive, mysterious… definitely UNIQUE!"

    Mmmmmmm that sounds nice.

    I don't know... the notes don't sound all-together unique (at least in a way that say, Scent Intense is). Hopefully it won't smell run of the mill.

    LiveJazz, I've rewritten the advertisement, because re-writing is more fun that writing!:

    "CoSTUME NATIONAL HOMME is a couch potato of a symbolic cave dwelling which seems made of body odor. He loves hangovers and he likes to surround himself with things purchased from Walmart, which reveal a desire for affordability and practicality. His style is run of the mill; wife-beaters with complimentary mustard stains on the front and arm pit sweat stains on the side. The closest to energy he gets is trolling from the couch to the fridge, to grab another RockStar drink... Giving him enough calories to make it back to the couch where he wraps himself up in a layer of potato chip crumbs and cheetos powder. Mmmm.... Now there's a one-two basenote knockout combo.

    His seductiveness could make him mistaken for a transgendered pedophile, as he is mysterious, and definitely UNIQUE!

    Hmmm... Not sure if that would get anybody too excited or not.

    Who needs cologne when you have RockStar and Cheetos powder?! There's a guy who never forgets his rock & roll energy.

    Seriously, what is "rock & roll energy," anyway? Are they serious? I would never buy this fragrance based on that little creative writing gem.

    I agree, it sounds like nothing but cheesy bunk.
    But based on their past fragrances and the nose behind this latest scent, i am looking forward to it.

    Don't his rock & roll energy and love of sobriety kinda conflict?

    On my hand it is a copy of Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme. Very figgy stuff and similar to a lot of other fig-scents! I think it is easy to lose interest in this scent after a couple of wearings.

    gupts, I think you must be referring to Costume national Scent Intense, as Ive not made any recommendations of the new Homme, as Ive not smelled it yet!

    Mic, my fellow countryman! May I ask where you managed to sniff Homme? Did you source it here in Denmark? If so, please tell me where!

    No bad at all - occasionally members confuse myself and "Dimitrios", and I thought perhaps HE had made a recommendation.

    After a short-term stay in Paris I took a sample with me yesterday. I didn't try it yet, as it is about number 10 on the waiting list...
    What a pleasure to try the Kurkdjian fragrances, especially Cologne pour Soir - absolutly gorgeous with a high addiction potential! Needless to mention that I bought a bottle right away. I do love it!

    fly777, have you used your sample yet? I'd love to hear more opinions about this one.

    Thanks to a kind Basenoter, this was my SoTD today... I am already a huge fan!

    This is a sophisticated, surprising release which has both gourmand and woody/spicy characteristics. As an edp it delivers in terms of persistence too. Though marketed to men, I dare say there will be women who will fall for its charms as well!
    Ive uploaded a full review on my blog for anyone who cares to hear me rant more.

    I want a FB of this STAT.

    Dimitri, I had to smile when I read "Innovation comes in the form of an invisible tube to draw up the juice: something never seen before." Did you intend some irony with that?

    LOL, no I wasnt being intentionally ironic, but now I read it back there is a very obvious pun there ("Invisible tube" / "never seen before") lol!

    But no - as far as all the visuals are concerned, there is no visible tube, despite it being a transparent glass flacon. Im intrigued to see it in the flesh.

    Im easily wowed at the "invisible" tube inside this bottle... can anyone else who owns a bottle tell me how this is achieved? Something to do with the viscosity of the juice, perhaps?

    I have a bottle, though the Perry Ellis scent that came out over a year ago was the first I had with this type of tube. My guess is it's made of thinner type of plastic that has more translucency. It's "there", just not as noticeable as some of the thicker tubing that may look more opaque.

    My Lumiere Noire and APOM (Kurkdjian) bottles have that invisible tube thing too, I think.

    Also own CN Homme, love it. Still have to sample the other ones in this line.

    The new Guerlain feminine, Idylle, had the invisible atomizer tube also. You really have to hold it up very close in very bright light, to notice it.

    I am interested in smelling this one also.
