About Gucci pour Homme

Tom Ford wanted this scent to be like the classic men's fragrances of the seventies, and with notes of spices, woods, amber and leather - he may well be on the mark.

Reviews of Gucci pour Homme

Thumbs up for the scent, but a neutral at today's prices....

One of Tom Ford's better offerings, as it doesn't wear "heavy" like his eponymous lineup does.

However, staying true to every TF scent I've tried, this is very linear. And there is the "pencil shavings" scent lurking in the background, throughout the day.

Longevity is above average, as are all TF scents I've tried, so if this frag is your bag you will get your money's worth.

The discontinued Tommy Bahama for Men is a similar reference for the base, so add some spice and a faint "cola" hint to that and you are pretty close to Gucci PH I.

Definitely take a test drive before signing on the bottom line for this unicorn, but all in all better than anything with a "Tom Ford" on the label.

Gucci PH II is better for much less $$, the overwelming pencil shavings scent is not enough for me to go buy a bottle, other that that is a easy to wear scent.

Maybe my sample was not good. This was pencil shavings and not much else. Minimalistic, light. Gentle. Maybe someday I will get another sample to compare, but this, to me, as a fan of dry masculines, is a thumbs down.

Pour Homme - Gucci
An overly scrubbed clean 'nothing-like' scent with ultraclean notes all along and a bitter-sour anisic vs hissing peppery-gasoline tendency that goes on forever. No flesh, no structure and no bones: a spineless masculine that fails to impress. The use of some excellent raw materials is a bonus though.

THE standard cedar (pencil shavings, yes), pepper and incense. If you like things like that, this is a good one to like. Secondary market price inflation since its discontinuation clearly reflect it.

With a slash of fruity lip gloss across its incense and papyrus, Gucci pour Homme feels like some trashy ikon by Andy Warhol - but this time done with infinite care.

A bizarre alignment of the sacred and the trite which, as it descends, eventually comes to land on a pale sweet powdery-woody base done in the style of Dior Homme (which actually came later). This makes for a disappointing conclusion to what is otherwise a bold work that hoiks incense out of the temple and into the 21st century.

Michel Almairac visited this theme again with Bentley for Men Absolute, which will have to serve as replacement for all those who can't get their hands on this scandalously deleted classic.
