The time of leather-jacketed men and heavily made-up women
[Short Review]

Dupont Pour Homme is a warm perfume and a time travel to the style of the first half of the 80s. Upon smelling this scent, I immediately remember seeing Porsche 911s everywhere, trying out the first cell phone, reading daily about the cold war, going to the 007 movies, and watching in awe as the first PCs, Walkmans, and VCRs come to market. In the newspapers, I started to read the word Perestroika. John Lenon edited the Double Fantasy album and was murdered a few months later. Radio stations filled our ears with Alphaville, Depeche Mode, A-ha, Blondie, Tears for Fears, Duran Duran, and the Pet Shop Boys. On any night out, I could only see men wearing leather jackets and heavily made-up women.

I don't know the perfumer from Dupont Pour Homme, but several sources indicate that it was Guy Robert, father of Monsieur Rochas Eau de Toilette Concentrée (in 1969) and of the first Gucci Pour Homme (in 1976). These are two unforgettable Woody Chypres with a similar olfactory line.
I don't know any other way to buy Dupont Pour Homme other than through an E-Bay search. As with some of the discontinued men's perfumes of the 70s, their price has skyrocketed. However, remember that we can hardly smell many of the ingredients used in today's perfumes. Mysore sandalwood has long been a protected species, and non-synthetic oakmoss is heavily regulated by the IFRA. Many experts continue to claim that "Richard Dupont" is one of the best perfumes of all time. It is a conceptual masterpiece from a golden age, in the form of a Woody Chypre.
This perfume stands out for its elegance full of herbal, woody, floral, soapy, peppery, mossy, and slightly green and smoky accords. They all coexist in total harmony and the result is intense, full-bodied, clean, and with good performance. I can hardly name a better combination of sandalwood oakmoss than I find in this fragrance. It has a vintage "Je ne sais quoi" but it never smells old-fashioned. I would like to mention that one of the nuances felt denotes a light smoke that reminds me of the smell of tobacco leaves. Perhaps it is the result of the love relationship between oakmoss and vetiver.
Note list is not available anywhere. I can only comment on what my nose finds. Forgive him for any mistake, for he is intoxicated with so much wealth. I a soft warm leather base, some musk, some prominent sandalwood, some amber, a lot of oakmoss, a lot of lavender, the inevitable zesty citruses, and elegant florals. In florals, in addition to the dominant lavender, there is green jasmine, earthy geranium, and iris. There are also green spices spread throughout evolution. However, no note is blunt or dominant. As if its charm were not enough, this perfume is also an example of an extraordinarily balanced fragrance.
It is a fantastic perfume for the afternoons and evenings of spring, autumn, and summer. It will then be possible to feel this fragrance with all its strength and richness.

Who could have worn this perfume? Men like Bryan Ferry, John Travolta, and Ayrton Senna... That's my bet.
