    Default Yohji Yamamoto Yohji Homme

    Is this just an anemic scent? I can barely smell it. Is this one of those scents famous for anosmia and habituation? Even in the first few minutes I can barely make it out. WTF! As I had such high hopes.

    You must unfortunately be anosmic to it. It's quite strong and long lasting. A brilliant fragrance.

    Liquorice, Rum, Coffee, Cinnamon, Leather.


    This is a strong frag. If you cannot smell it you either have a gone bad/altered bottle or you are anosmic to it.

    Well I bought it at TPC and either it has gone bad or perhaps they mixed up the names. Others have mentioned that Yohji Homme (1999) is a bit anemic. So now I am totally confused.

Given some of the previous posts, it would appear I'm not alone in this...

    I do not find this too strong, it stays rather close to the skin after some time

    Strong and long lasting? Yohji Homme?? Are you kidding me? I had a bottle of this last year but had to let it go because it just doesn't last and fades within 2-3 hours. Apparently this is a big problem with the fragrance. Anyone who finds it strong and long lasting, please be kind to send me a 2ml vial of the 'strong' stuff.

    Fragrance is strong at first, but doesn't have very good longevity. Are you able to smell the licorice note when you first apply it?

    I'm not much of a licorice fan, but once a month or two I like it. I found that the Fraicheur version of Lolita Lempicka au Masculin was my favorite of these. As to the longevity, for me they are the kind of frags you catch wafts of every now and then. It's not like most of the other frags I have, but the longevity is good. However, with my skin chemistry almost all frags have good longevity. LOL.

    This is a strong frag. If you cannot smell it you either have a gone bad/altered bottle or you are anosmic to it.

    I agree - I've had multiple bottles and it wears very close for me. I wouldn't call it anemic, but it's certainly not a loud fragrance.

    If we are talking about Yohji Homme, its a beautiful gourmand fragrance and lasted a long time on my skin which doesn't hold scents very well at all! Too bad its discontinued now, Is Lolita Lempicka au Masculin quite simmilar?
