Solid barbershop scent
Solid. Maybe a bit boring, but terribly solid: citrus, sharp bitter green notes, oak moss, a barbershop accord of lavender and freshly cut woods. A really “conventional” fresh fougère for men in the same league of Yves Saint Laurent pour Homme, but with a hint of uniqueness lying in the unusually loud tone of the green notes, which smell sour and sharp as hell, enhanced by the astringent citric bitterness and the raw feel of woods, and cleverly “rounded” by something powdery-musky, almost animalic too, I guess due to lavender (you can really smell a ton of it here) and mossy notes. Really simple, sophisticatedly dry, virile and mature, probably not memorable, but a perfect piece of old-school self-confidence in a (fantastic!) bottle.

The Powdery Finish Mars An Excellent Start...
Homme de Gres opens with a slightly bitter herbal lemon combo that establishes the theme for the scent early on. These notes hold from start to finish, but joining them in the scent's heart is a nicely done powdery lavender that builds over time. In the base, a leathery undertone adds a further dimension to the powdery herbaceous lemon/lavender combo. Homme de Gres is a bit more than a skin scent, but it is no projector either. Longevity and strength are quite good (as is the sprayer on the bottle, for what its worth).

When I first smelled the herbaceous green lemon opening I was really into Homme de Gres big time. It kind of reminded me of some of the better qualities of herbal lemon scents like vintage YSL pour Homme, then when the lavender based powder joined in, I even got a slight reminiscence to the great Patou pour Homme Prive... Unfortunately the powder continued to build until it became too much, before diminishing a bit later-on in the dry-down. That is where Homme de Gres lost a lot of its positive momentum and its comparison to those two great scents among others. Still, this is a very good scent in its own right and I am happy to have a bottle in my wardrobe. Even though it is discontinued, bottles are available on eBay for reasonable money. I suggest if you like powdery herbaceous lemon scents you pick one up while you still can. I give Homme de Gres a very solid recommended, and a 3.5 out of 5 star rating.
