Cool Electronic Music
This fragrance is too underrated, wrongly. I can intuit why, but I can also say that it's worth giving this one a chance.

First of all, it's soft and synthetic; It doesn't project too much or even intends to go "natural" at all. It doesn't look very promising at first, huh..?

So "Karl Lagerfeld For Him" does its own thing. I don't really detect any isolated, pure clean and clear note; rather, what I get is a kind of chemical aromatic blend... Something like if it were music, it would be totally electronic music.

This is a composition with a nice synthetic accord, something citric, a little bit fruity and floral that is slowly turning into a more woody and definitely, musky fragrance.

The question here is: Do you like electronic music..?

It's modern, smart, urban, stylish... A very enjoyable designer scent, well made and it has a subtle "avant-garde" touch (and I don't consider "avant-garde" the current trend of loss of accords development and overuse of sugar).

Mostly I love artisan, pure and traditional perfumery, but that isn't exactly "cutting-edge couture", right..? And occasionally, something different is frankly stimulating.

Karl Lagerfeld made here a fashionable reinterpretation of a classic fougere that I find very contemporary, and it accurately reflects modern times.

Profile Data:

- Longevity: Around 5-6 hours during the cold, it extends perfectly to 8h+ with warm temperatures: It's the kind of fragrance that needs some heat to fully develop its dry-down.

- Projection: Moderate and gentle, it subtly accompanies you in your daily environment with a pleasant, stylish and smart aura.

- Mood: Vital, modern, urban, cool...

- Scenario & Occasions: Great for office and as a "skin-scent"; It has smooth projection, but it's smart enough to create a good and fine olfactory memory.

For spring, summer (not extremely hot) and early fall; It's ok for winter, but loses some performance.

Age: >25 better: It can be used by younger people, but it's not ideal; although it's a vibrant and modern fragrance, it has an halo of confidence that doesn't fit well in young people without a "center of gravity".

In conclusion: For me it's different and interesting enough to introduce it in my rotation, and against all odds, is one of the few fragrances that generate spontaneous compliments for me. This isn't something that I care about or pretend, but it happens.

I like this scent.

Generic Fougere
Standard fougere, it has that smell that you can fit in any man, faceless smell that fulfills the duty of not letting the male gets stinky. Green apple aroma, sweet and slightly bitter, herbal lavender and violet smell, with a woody sandalwood base with some amber. I guess that the only intersting thing here for me is the violet, that here doesn't smell like the leaf but instead is the sweeter and flower violet aroma. From the rest, i pass.

Chemical Soup
I just looked at the German reviews, some eloquent gentlemen there really took the time to take this fragrance apart and their comments are worth reading/worth being translated...
Yet - I can't bring myself to gracing this generic and utterly unpleasant product of "Interparfums" of 4, Rond-Point des Champs-Elysées in 75008 Paris, with an elaborated review. This stuff is so bad that words nearly fail me. Karl Lagerfeld: Your latest "KL for him" is a total bummer. You should be ashamed of this chemical soup.
