Dry Classic
Ho Hang is a naturalistic Italian style masculine with a cool citrus - basil core. Lightly ornamented, it's spare, uncompromising and lies somewhere between a dry Martini and Eau du Sud.

Ho Hum
Ludicrous faux Asian name that I find nearly as annoying as "oriental" being the name of a fragrance category. Trying to translate these phonemes in Mandarin gave "back alleys" or "waiting line". Vietnamese offered the slightly more promising "relatives", whereas the Filipinos sensibly declined to be drawn on the matter.

But how does it smell? Well, like Switzerland actually. Plenty of fresh air and sunshine, ever so well groomed, and neutrally poised between trad. EdC, soapy barbershop, herbal fougère and yes, perhaps even a whisper of "Oriental" through a very muted vanillatonkabenzoin contribution.

No Asians, 'Hos or back alleys in sight, this is a lemony fresh scent with a hearty geranium and lavender riding on a smooth soapy base. Nothing to excite, but it won't get you bombed either.

Mr. and Mrs. Ho Hang with tension expects
First snuffling impression: „come, hmmm, very well“

Why does Balenciaga call a perfume like one name more Asianly?
I haven't been able to find any explicable reason for it.
The name is briefly and concisely and no French tongue twister.

I have sprayed the smell on the other wrist.

The seventies send their regards. I like nostalgia.
Light citric, I tastily smell.
Geranium fortunately isn't contained much, I don't like this one.
Very light mint smells wonderfully next to the spices.

I very much like the move of cedar mated with slight rose smell and lavender.
A quite soft sweet one puts herself to this, not to many and not too little.

The lovely base then reaches me.
Smokily, resinous but also again quite, quite discreet, the little Orient.

I would describe durability and Sillage as mediocre. I haven't sprayed intensely. I must thriftily handle him.

It isn't the smell to be able to carry him only for men since I am a Mrs. and very happy.

Greeting and kiss to Hamburg!
