Yuzu Man - Caron
<mark>Profumo</mark>Profumo   16.02.2012 | Perfumes & Brands

What do you think about Yuzu Man by Caron?

...A bit of a yawn.It´s nice but nothing special. A shy little citric fragrance with a fruity touch, that´s all.Caron was once a house that created daring (and not at all conservative, IMO) fragrances like "Yatagan" or "Poivre" aka "Coup de Fouet". Over the years, especially after hiring Richard Fraysse, the company lost almost all it´s reputation.Time to retire, Monsieur Fraysse!

Leather chypres

...MNQ: How about Helmut Langs "Cuiron" i know there's leather notes but would you consider it to be a chypre also? Still learning :?Yes, most definitely! But you can also call it a "Woody Chypre" like Fragrantica does: http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Helmut-Lang/Cuiron-pour-Homme-4195.html

Do you have an all-year-round fragrance ?

...Giada:No, I don't.Me neither!But the one I frequently reach for all the year round is "Eau Sauvage"

Leather chypres

...May I suggest some rather masculine one´s?Here we go!"Aramis""Yatagan""Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme""Trussardi Uomo" (vintage, the new one is hideous)"Antaeus"But as Luca Turin mentioned (and I wholeheartedly agree): "Bandit" is still several unlit streets ahead of every other leather chypre around" (along with "Azurée" IMO)

Vétiver de Frédéric - Frédéric Haldimann

So many great vetivers...

...Among the classic vetivers I think Guerlain´s and Givenchy´s renditions are unsurpassed (although reformulated, they are still in good condition). Lubin´s "Le Vetiver" is really good, too, but the new Carven is a disaster.More recent one´s I like the most are:"Vétiver Extraordinaire""Sycomore""Vetiver Extreme" (thankfully, the one in the HR-bottle is a bit closer to the original "Vetiver"!)"Vetiver pour Elle""Le Vetiver - Itasca""Mon Numéro 3"
