    Default Is Lalique pour homme (Lion), a blast from the past..?

    Wearing this one as my sotd from an official sample (thnx ebear)..

    Such a classic, refined scent. However, it's been almost 3 hours now and, the way this scent is evolving clearly reminds me of orientals from 60's/70's et al.. a sense of Deja Vu.. in the sense, i feel this is the best representation of classics when they were released. This scent essentialyl uses refined aromachemicals available today, hence smells uptodate yet, with a nostalgic, elegant feel of classics. I feel im being transported to the era when most of the releases focussed on orientals.

    This one is sweeter and more transparent than lets say a Patou Ph, PdN NY, Ho Hang, Equipage et al.. yet, it very easily finds home amongst these lavender + Floral based orientals

    Other scents that forms the classic structure imho are
    Ck Obsession
    Cartier Kiss of Dragon

    Jenson,

    I don't know too much about fragrances from the past, but I would certainly say that Lalique pour Homme does echo a classic feel. I am reminded a bit of Heritage, but it could just be the common ground of being a sweet oriental fragrance. I have a mini of Lalique pour Homme and the juice seems a bit difficult to get out . But it is a nice fragrance for sure. One that I need to dress up a bit to wear

    My favourte from the house of Lalique ! The bottle is quite nice as well.

    True! I agree with the Heritage Comparison...especially towards it's midnotes...must be the screechy use of Cedar..

    I got the Heritage comparison the first time I wore LPH too. I prefer Heritage - it's a bit...crisper.

    I got a bottle of Lalique (Lion) very cheaply at a Perfumania sale last year. It does feel like a throwback. Very soft and musky. I get a 70's gold chain and snazzy suit vibe from it. Not a t-shirt and jeans kind of scent. Also, like some have said, it can come across almost a bit sleazy in its muskiness. To me, it doesn't remind me much of Heritage, but instead it comes across alot like Helmut Lang EDT/EDC with its feel that borders on baby oil.

    OK, testing it now, I do get a little bit of Heritage, in addition to the Helmut Lang. Nice stuff and I think of it primarily as a musk scent.

    The Heritage association is even stronger if you try the EDP of the Lalique.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Yes, I should have noted, my mini is of the EDP. I still have not been able to sample the EDT. Considering when Lalique pour Homme was made ( 1997 ?), it is definely a blast from the past. Certainly not a scent you would think that would have been created at that time. Homme des Gres is another fragrance, while not similar in smell to the Lalique, that feels like a "blast from the past" when it was made ( 1996).
