    Caron Pour Homme is like a must try for Basenoters.

    Just a simple calming mellow scent that is fun and easy to wear.

    A classic that has stood the test of time.

    Wore it yesterday - one spritz. Significantly better than the last time I tried it; the Play Doh thing is shorter lived this time.
    Would be interesting to do a comparison with Geir.

    Great fragrance showcasing lavender, vanilla, a ton of coumarin and some amber / play doh. I think it's aged really well, and it's something I like to wear every once in a while. Very comforting with its fuzzy / dusty texture.

    Yes. Look for ones without the 'de'. So, look for 'Pour Un Homme' not 'Pour Un Homme De'.

    Also look to see if the box is missing a barcode.
    Also 3 ingredients or so instead of a longer list of ingredients.

    I fell in love with the modern stuff, but sold it off after I experienced the vintage stuff. It has an awesome animalic kick to it that is lacking or absent in the modern. And there's less of that Play-Doh vibe in the vintage. Also the Les Plus Belles Lavandes is great stuff too (not talking about the 2008 or so re-issue, I'm talking about the older stuff).

    I was going to say - I like Carven Homme, it's interesting and complex and hard to pin down, but as I haven't tried the Caron yet, I'd be surprised if it smelt similar. What I've tried from Caron I really enjoy - they epitomise 'classical' to my sensibilies - so I'm keen to try this and many more that they do.

    Any Carons to avoid, or are they all worth sampling?

    I cannot think about a Caron masculine that i really dislike. Although the classic trio is still the best for me.

    different story for the ones for women, many of which have been reformulated beyond recognition.

    Nope. Thumbs down. Playdoughy if you think about it intentionally. Im against the grain here. I think it stinks.

    Yea, youíre thinking correctly. Theyíre nothing alike.

    Is this your opinion of the current release or all versions including vintage? Thanks in advance.

    But you've only tried the modern stuff then, haven't you? I definitely get the Play-Doh vibe a lot more with modern.

    If you haven't yet, please do yourself a favor and try older vintage stuff.

    A lot of the time reform stuff may be not noticeable, or a tad bit, or just straight up BS... but in the case of Caron Pour Un Homme.. it kind of blew me away, the difference.

    Interesting. I love the 'new' juice. But then again maybe I like the smell of PlayDoh.

    I've tried both major iterations and I too like the smell. I don't get much PlayDoh from any version, just lots of tonka and lavender, like the Lush spray "Twilight", just much better blended.

    New version was what I tried. The playdough assosiation was one of those things that if you were looking for it, it smelled that way. Otherwise it smelled like lavender/vanilla/musk. I might try vintage at sone point, as i was suprised i disliked it as much as i did. I could see such a simplistic composition being heavily dependent on higher quality ingredients to be successful. Never the less, i give the new version an ardent thumbs down.
