    Default MFK APOM Pour Homme - Gorgeous Heaveny Orange Blossom Amber Fragrance

    I have had a full bottle of this delivered today as I was impressed with LNPH another MFK creation and it is every bit as gorgeous.

    This one is all about orange blossom,amber and cedar though they are blended together seamlessly. I sprayed a shot to my chest and both wrists and have been enveloped in a halo of warm orange blossom amber.

    It is warm and slightly sweet and powdery and has the same ethereal nature as LNPH but this projects more and I have gotten about nine hours plus and it's still going.

    This scent really is heavenly and it seems to blossom on the skin. It gives you a rich seductive glow and the woods seem to make the scent more masculine by deepening the feeling of the amber/orange blossom.

    Anyone who loves Aqua Di Palma, Neroli and barbershop type scents should check this one out as it is gorgeous. This would make a great Spring/Summer fragrance for that out of the shower into the Summer Sun feeling.

    I'm glad you're enjoying it, I recently got a decant and have been wearing it pretty often. My favorite part is the drydown, which smells like musk, honey and a touch of vanilla. The most amazing thing about APOM though, is how Francis Kurdkjian managed to keep the orange blossom note going all the way until the end! Unbelievable.

    I know usually the star of the show notes usually fade away into the basenotes of something else. But here it just keeps on giving while around it the amber slightly sweetens the composition. Making it like you say, musky honey with a touch of vanille. Gorgeous scent.

    Great description and nice to hear that you like APOM Pour Homme too. It really projects on beautifully way and keep the same sunny feeling all the time, just like you said. Sillage and longevity is really good at least on my skin. Luckily, I do still have some left of my APOM sample.

    Have you tried Cologne Pour Le Soir? It also have very nice and seductive drydown with honey, benzoin and incense, but it is much dryer than APOM PH, though. Still very enjoyable IMO.

    Yes I have a 2 ml sample of it and it is a lovely honeyed rose with just a hint of the animalic in the background. I have tried most of the range now except for the Aqua ones. But APOM and LNPH stand out for me, though the whole range are well crafted. Even APLS has a lovely drydown it's just to much of a bumpy ride for me getting there.lol

    I wrote it off as Le Male lite, been awhile since I tried it though.

    APOM has a musk that doesn't agree with me 100%. It's my only problem with it...

    I would have acquired this if I loved orange blossom. It's an OB fantasy.

    Does it have orange blossom without an orange note? Orange blossom is one of my favorite scents, but many perfumers ruin it (for me) by including orange fruit or orange peel as well. I'd be all over it if it's a pure orange blossom with amber scent.

    I prefer my orange blossom with some citrus. APOM blends it with cedar and a dirty musk.

    I understand what you mean. Yes there is no orange note. Just the soft OB note.
    If you like OB you'll love Fleur d'Oranger by Le Labo.

    So what I hope you're saying is no citrus orange note, right?

    Actually I got my nose on that for a second last month at the Le Labo counter in Osaka, but my nose was already completely blown from the Serge Lutens counter. From what I remember Fluer d'Oranger was very realistic and I really wanted to try it out on my skin. I'm heading back there in about two days, so maybe I'll be able to give it a shot.

    It's smelling the Le Labo Fd'O that made me realize I'm not a huge fan of OB when prominent. So yes Fd'O is a very realistic OB.

    That's good to hear. The city I'm from in California has was full of orange orchards, and a friend of mine has been asking if there's a scent that captures the orange blossom well. He said a pure-ish orange blossom scent is the only fragrance he'd ever consider buying. Hopefully this one might give me something to report back to him.

    I found the citrus/cedar/musk reminiscent of Lalique White, but not as dry.

    The only other fragrance I have like this is Penhaligons Castile and APOM blows that one out of the water. This is though a orange blossom fantasy (lol) where the amber,musk and woods deepens the OB and makes it more masculine. Thats what I like about it and this lasts and projects really well.

    I just received my samples of the most of this line, and my impressions are the same This one and LN are the stand outs. I have yet to make my first MFK purchase but LN will be it. I really enjoyed APOMM today as it was my SOTD, However, the entire time i was sniffing it i knew it reminded me of something and i could not pinpoint exactly what it was and then it hit me...Amouage Reflection man. I know they are not identical, but there is a very similiar vibe, which will probably make it difficult to justify a bottle of this stuff, but i will continue testing it out. Amazing house and can't beleive it took me this long to discover them

    I do not get the Reflection Man comparison as that one is a powdery jasmine scent and I think of Joop and original Santal as scents that smell like it.

    APOM is all about orange blossom and amber, maybe you are picking up a neroli note within Reflection Man as they cannot be more different.lol

    What did you think of Absolue Pour le Matin? It was the only one I did not gel with, the opening fizzy lemon accord that stayed around for ages was off putting for me. Agree though MFK is a fantastic house and all his scents are quality.

    You are correct, i did a side by side comparison and yes they are different with Reflection being much sweeter and overall more heavy/complex of a scent imo. APOM is very smooth, notes blended so nicely together that it really separates it from RM. RM is one of my top frags, but i can see APOM being used for perfect summer/spring days as well.

    As far as APLM, I am right there with you, that fizzy lemon accord was not my cup of tea and boy did that note stick around for hours! lol APLS was another that is a intersteing scent but just not for me, especailly in the climate i lieve in i don't see myself waering it at all...i rarely wear MR, so i don't see this one getting much play either. Dry down is nice though.

    Any other houses or scents that you have grabbed you're attention recently, i'd like to try another house that is of this type of quality.

    Looks like we are both on the same page and like and dislike the same fragrances. I agree with your Assessment of APLS it is just to honey sweet for my taste as well.

    I am glad I discovered the small house of Maison Francis Kurkdjian as well and I cannot remember when I have purchased two scents from one house in quick succession. I do not know of any small diamond in the rough fragrance houses like MFK but I will be on the lookout.

    Good luck with your future purchase of Lumire Noire Ph it wows me every time I wear it.

    The only fragrance now from MFK after having tried most of them is Acqua Universalis Forte though I read it was a bit feminine, will have to get a sample and try it.

    I don't really agree with the 'dirty musk' comment. I've been wearing APOM since the end of February each and every day in cold freeze and in hot summer, sweating like dog while running: never dirty for a second.

    Some weeks ago I already commented the Reflection comparison. The woman version might be similiar to an extent, probably because of the ylang-ylang, but APOM Homme is by no way similar to Reflection.

    I don't know JH, APLS is really growing on me, at first i thoguht it was a bit too "dirty" but i can't stop sniffing my hand, 2nd night in a row i've tested this. I think it would take a little courage for me to wear this out, since i'm not sure how well received it may be by others, but i'm really loving how exotic and different it is compared to anything else i've sniffed or currently own. My bottle of LNPH should be in tomorrow which i cannot wait! The next MFK fragrance is still undecided at this point.

    Jack, you should try Diptyque L’eau de Neroli. Got a sample of it with my Tam Dao, has a similar vibe with the orange blossom.

    The same thing happened to me with APLS after the rough beginning it started to smell really nice on the skin. And though I like that part of it the honey rose sweetness is just to much for me. Enjoy that bottle of LNPH when it arrives, I wore it on xmas day with my girlfriend and it enhanced the overall feel of the day. Great scent.

    I'm wearing this today and I've got to say so far its my favourite MFK by quite a large margin, Still have Absolue pour le Matin and Aqua Universalis Forte to go.

    1.APOM Pour Homme
    2.Absolue Pour Le Soir
    3.Lumiere Noire Pour Homme
    4.Aqua Universalis (concentrated headache in a bottle, not good)

    APOM Pour Homme is surprisingly one of the nearest to what I would call my holy grail so far. Surprisingly because I usually like spicier, heavier scents. I don't find it dirty in the least, on the contrary, it is bright, warm and awe-inducing as the most golden dusk I have ever seen.
