L'Homme Oubliable
In 2006, the original L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent was launched on the market and is, along with La Nuit de l'Homme, certainly one of the company's bestsellers. Whether it has been reformulated or not, I can't understand, but a very good friend of mine has been wearing it for years and I can always recognize the scent. It is reserved, but very pleasant and yet with recognition value.

Over the years, YSL has distinguished itself with an almost absurd amount of flankers to both of the above mentioned fragrances. They have rolled over with it. So after Le Parfum to La Nuit de l'Homme, now Le Parfum to the classic L'Homme.

I had La Nuit EdT and EdP in my collection around 2010 and I must say that at that time they were the best and most complex fragrances in my collection. Of course I was still at the very beginning, had only Boss Bottled Night and a few Cheapies in my collection, but these two fragrances were heavenly for me. YSL was the top for me
In the meantime I have to realize that YSL does not meet my taste anymore. Maybe it's because I'm gradually outgrowing my target group, but disappointing it still does me. Just like this flanker here, which underlines my statement even more.

The first spray of this flanker starts with what is called ozone here and for me simply embodies the classic freshness of an aquatic. But L'Homme Le Parfum is definitely not an aquatic. It rather goes in the direction of fragrances like Y from the same house or Acqua di Giò Absolu from Armani and is therefore one of the numerous further developments of the famously infamous Invictus by Paco Rabanne. I am aware that the fragrance DNA is quite popular at the moment, but it does not suit my taste. The top note is altogether a bit overstraining. The first time I smelled it I even got a slight headache. It starts very fresh and still has an overwhelming sweetness. I can smell cardamom (here in a rather sweetish version), but the lemon is gone in no time at all.

This sweet-fresh mix then drifts quite quickly into the rose geranium, which is more or less the centre of this fragrance. The geranium here has no pepperiness, which you can sometimes smell out, but goes more in the rosy direction. This blends with the sweet-fresh scent mixture, which persists, giving it an additional floral character. The Sillage is already dying a little bit here.

Towards the end everything becomes quite unspectacular, as the scent only gets a little bit more woody and thus fades away with a little bit of sweetness in a woody-fresh mix. The durability is quite ok, but I find the Sillage really very weak.

The fragrance is probably a perennial, but I see it more during my free time in the sunny park (I need to get out of this house) than at work. I rate the recognition value on a scale from 0 to 10, because I couldn't distinguish it from other freshies like the ones I mentioned above. Especially this is a pity, because at that time around 2010 the La Nuit fragrances were especially characterized by their recognition value. The normal L'Homme that my buddy wears, by the way.

This is probably the perfect gift for your young nephew, whose interests and preferences you know nothing about and who will certainly be happy about it. For the perfume bunnies who have already had several fragrances under their noses, this fragrance will either be a disappointment or simply forgotten.

To put it in the words of poet Ariana Grande: Thank U, Next.

1st impressions: Opens brightly, not as unique or fresh as the sadly axed Ultime but this also smells fantastic, warm & alluring dry-down.

This is exactly what it says. The same DNA of L'Homme but amplified. Great smell if you like the original. The performance is ok, though.
