Yes... a great fine, clear...
...but unfortunately also a fugitive!! Too bad actually...but S/H in the lower third don't earn me any respect in this price range!
The scent simply flies much too fast...there are unfortunately much better things on the same scent quality and price class!

He opens freshly citric, turns into a wonderful juniper gin note and remains until he is not more correctable clear....what I actually like very much from the course...now even better H/S...and he probably should have moved in with me.
At the moment, unfortunately, he gets to hear: "You're not getting in here!"

L'humaniste vs Allure Homme Edition Blanche
Chanel - Allure Homme Edition Blanche and Frapin - L'Humainste are very similar and are often called fragrance twins. This is a comparison of these fragrances.

Both fragrances are very citrusy and quite similar in opening. Then after about 10-15 minutes, the differences crystallize. While the L'Humaniste remains citrusy fresh and smell like a fresh lemonade, join the Chanel the sweetness and creaminess of tonka bean. The purpose is clearly summer, however, I would still distinguish.

Edition Blanche: 15-30°C, the creaminess and sweetness allows the fragrance even in not quite summer temperatures to wear, however, it is for really hot weather simply too sweet.

L'Humaniste: 20°C and more, the fragrance needs warmth to unfold, however, compared to the Chanel, it is wearable even in very high temperatures.

The durability of both fragrances is about the same and definitely rather short. Already after one hour, the fragrances clearly decrease in intensity and are two hours after application only very thin to perceive.

The fine herbaceous masculinity
First you can perceive an intense and strong citric note, which hides bright greenish sourish speckles in the background and is due to the lemon in combination with the lime
These two notes are enveloped in a refreshing, typically peppery note, which is responsible for the top note being lifted a little into the air and I "only" typed on black pepper, but also, as I can see, pink pepper was used
In the very background, close to my skin, another citric nuance plays out its charm, which has a slight herbaceous aura and comes from bergamot.

A little later a beautiful, slightly tingling berry-like note can be noticed, which brings a pleasant light wooden tone in the background and gives the fragrance a fine masculinity and comes from the juniper.

The juniper is accompanied by a light ethereal, slightly sweetish shade, which gives the fragrance an additional pleasant herbaceous substance and is due to the thyme.

These two notes are accompanied by a very delicate, almost fragile aromatic nuance, which gives the heart a nice, soft spice and comes from nutmeg.

In the last 2.5 hours the juniper has turned a little bit into the smooth, berry-looking shade, without its wooden property and I didn't come across gin, but actually also guessed the use of juniper in the base.

At the same time, the gin is enveloped by a cuddly, sweetly almond-like, very gently warming, powdery spicy note, which gives the approaching end of the fragrance a pleasant cuddly aura and stems from the tonka bean.

These two notes are accompanied by a very delicate mossy nuance, which gives a beautiful, clear-looking finish and is due to the oak moss.

Unfortunately, I could not perceive cardamom and peony, but I can imagine very well that this scent component was used for background music.

Overall, the fragrance lasts hours on my skin.

The Sillage is conceived from the outset in such a way that one is perceived quite well at a quarter arm's length and this is also maintained 1.5 hours in such a way, before it reduces itself to the conclusion of the smell in leisurely steps.

I would like to express my sincerity for the sample of our perfume "Honk1510".

A brief burst of enthusiasm and summer
If you can count a fragrance to the fraction of graceful fresh summer fragrances, then that's Frapin L'Humaniste - but only conditionally.

After I got my bottling and took the first two sprays, it immediately rattled in my head. Finally it's the weekend, it's Saturday early in the morning, the sun, the morning still fresh air and the chirping of birds have already woken me up. I feel motivated, looking forward to my coffee, to a hearty breakfast and to what Saturday will bring me. There are no obligations today, the day and the world are open to me. I take a quick shower, jump into my casual clothes and purposefully reach for L'Humaniste.

A citrus-fresh cloud envelops me immediately, bergamot unites with cardamom and pepper, a slight spice already announces itself in the background. If you know it, you will also notice juniper and nutmeg. That prelude is quickly underpinned by a floral note. The base again requires knowledge of its components, but then these can also be recognized. Gin and especially the slightly creamy effect of tonka bean make their pact with the already noticed peony and keep everything else on track. I feel in a good mood and motivated.

What still preoccupied me after the first sprays was the question of where I just know this fragrance from, and it didn't take long before it clicked too. It was the memory of Allure Homme Edition Blanche and Sport, and that was definitely not because I had already read that in other posts.

Yes, I really liked starting a summery day with these scents. Then after about two hours of L'Humaniste and repeated sniffs, I came to the question, do you really have to have L'Humaniste?

Because what remains of the first experience, the associations and the description, is on balance only a brief touch of enthusiasm and summer. Although the fragrance itself is quite an experience, but unfortunately it is over as quickly as the round in a Porsche GT2 RS on the Nordschleife - ten minutes of enthusiasm, adrenaline and a great memory that remains. Of course, L'Humaniste doesn't say goodbye after 10 minutes and the lap on the Nürburgring also costs a few cents more. Nevertheless, what L'Humaniste is still able to spread after one or two hours is just a rip-off of what initially thrilled me so much. In the end, only a soapy breeze blows around me. Only if you rub the hand neatly under the nose flames that initial enthusiasm again briefly.

In view of this, you may ask yourself whether you really need a fragrance whose twins Allure Homme Sport and Edition Blanche are 40 to 50 EUR cheaper. I would like to say only so much:
L'Humaniste has, despite its similarities, a very own character, which distinguishes him quite from his Dufttzwilligen. So who 135 EUR for a fragrance with disappointing durability and sillage are not too much, and who has no problem with a reserve in time every two hours to put, the L'Humaniste could well give what will probably be denied to me.

A gin and tonic for the hot days!
L'Humaniste is an insanely beautiful and noble summer fragrance, which unfolds its true glory for me especially in the heat. It smells like a delicious gin and tonic. Later it is joined by a wonderful sweet tonka bean. Lasts 5-6 hours on me, thankfully. An absolute unisex fragrance.

Delicious blend of refreshing citruses with gin, juniper and pepper. You also get a green and floral touch. A creamy tonka bean in the base.
