Reference Caliber Oakmoss...
Revillon pour Homme opens with an aromatic blast of herb-laced lavender supported by hints of oakmoss and cedar rising from the base. As the composition moves to its early heart the aromatic lavender remains but quickly takes a back seat to the oakmoss which takes on a soapy, slightly ashy tobacco green character. Moving through its middle, the lavender and oakmoss gradually dissipate, allowing supporting carnation and prominent green coniferous fir to enter the fold with trace hints of tonka bean-derived sweetness also entering the mix. During the late dry-down the oakmoss and lavender finally fade completely to the background as mild cinnamon spiced woods join the remnants of the now diminished green fir and slightly sweet tonka bean through the finish. Projection is very good, especially early but longevity is slightly below average at about 6-7 hours on skin.

As soon as I applied Revillon pour Homme on skin I knew I loved it. The first thing that grips you is the aromatic lavender and super-strong soapy oakmoss. Early-on it is hard not to make the comparison with vintage Captain Molyneux, as the two compositions smell quite similar through the early heart phase. As vintage Captain Molyneux is a "Top 10" caliber composition to this reviewer, any comparison with that masterpiece should be taken as the highest compliment. That said, if Revillon pour Homme merely cloned that earlier 70s masterpiece it would be notable as smelling amazing, but potentially unnecessary if you already owned vintage Captain. Once you get further into the heart phase of the composition it is clear that Revillon pour Homme is no Captain clone. To the contrary, it distinguishes itself with its liberal use of coniferous fir and just a touch of sweetness and natural smelling woods to send the two compositions ultimately in different directions. There really isn't anything to gripe about save its slightly below par longevity, but when the open smells as good as the one here, consider it just another reason to experience it again if one needs to reapply late in the day. In the end if forced, I still prefer the overall top-to-bottom presentation of vintage Captain, but now having smelled Revillon pour Homme there is no way I would ever be without this additional 70's masterpiece in my collection as well. The bottom line is the discontinued approximately $150 per 120ml bottle on the aftermarket Revillon pour Homme is outside of vintage Captain Molyneux the next best thing I have sniffed out of the 70's, earning a "masterpiece" rating of 4.5 to 5 stars out of 5 and an extremely strong recommendation to all, especially oakmoss lovers.
