    Default Balafre Lancome

    So....I'm seriously looking for this fragrance. I'm confused about Balafre Monsieur and Balafre Pour Hommes. If I'm correct, Monsieur means gentlemen and Pour Homme means for men? Was Monsieur first or Pour Hommes?

    Cheers!

    Prices are up there for any vtg formulation of this fragrance including the flankers.

    Unfortunately, I sampled the "Brun" flanker. Now I have to have Balafre!

    Oh well....I found a sealed, 2oz bottle of the "Pour Hommes" at a good price. I think I'll jump on it! I hope it smells good .
