Caron Pour Un Homme Eau de Toilette Spray is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ruum from The Caron Pour un Homme line has long been a respected classic. Arguably one of the first men's scents, Pour un Homme definitely beats the norm of a traditional cologne. No citrus as such, traditional woods like patchouli or oakmoss (that's obvious) and no hint of vetiver either. Instead, it mixes three simple 'notes': lavender, vanilla and amber. Yet it still remains a classic fougere, comprising of the usual notes that make up this genre - that is, lavender and coumarin/tonka bean (that's the vanilla/amber to you and me). What's even more strange is that I can detect each and every note. I've struggled to find a time to wear this scent, though originating in the early 20th Century I can see men in bow ties wearing this to the opera or formal dinners. I wasn't necessarily a fan of lavender but got a bottle as I wanted to see what the fuss was all about. Alas, Pour un Homme is a classic cologne for men - lovers of lavender will drool over it, as will fans of raw vanilla scents. Progression is good but the scent doesn't change much, other than the amber becoming a little more pronounced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheWolf from Lavendilla Given that Pour Un Homme has been around since 1934 it deserves both our attention and respect . Ignore the picture of the Klingon on the product page and you will discover a light, refreshing masculine fragrance, without a trace of Alpha Male arrogance, wherein a distinctive lavender and subtle vanilla hold hands in comfortable accord with something just a little bit (dare I say) "dirty" (in a nice way) going on in the middle ground. It doesn't last long but responds well to the occasional reapplication. A bracing and classy invention.
