Reviews of L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent

There are 197 reviews of L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent.

The opening is fresh: fresh lemon zest, a fresh ginger burst, and a nice vetiver in the background. a green-herbal background is provided by basil - both the leaves and the blossoms.

The green side is enhanced further by violet leaves, but the overall freshness and bright positivity retains it prominence throughout.

A bi later the mix turns sweeter, owing a vanilla/tonka impression, but this is a fairly discreet sweetness that is neither cloying nor intrusive.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection, and six hours of longevity on my skin.

A somewhat simple scent for cooler summer days, that is crafted quite well and always pleasant, and not without a hint of - attempted at least - originality. A safe office scent, and for those who prefer their fragrance to be unobtrusive. Earth-shatteringly original it is not. 3/5

L'Homme is an early example of what could be called the Sauvage style - aka Spiky Woods, an aggressive concoction of cheap aroma chemicals designed - like a fist to the nose - for maximum impact; or projection, penetration, invasion of personal space; call it what you will.

L'Homme is perhaps one of the better ones, although that's not saying much; but it does show how little the genre has changed in more than a decade - except maybe to get louder.

And if this style is derived from the sublime Cool Water, it could be a case of the Aquatic phenomenon repeating itself; an early masterpiece followed by multiple copies with nothing more to say. Not that this is a masterpiece.

From Cool Water to l'Homme to Sauvage, I dread to think what will come next.

Your usual but good masculine fragrance. It’s blue, it’s fresh, but I don’t care for it at all. Performances are good.

Nothing special. It aims at a redolent classic men's style but without any character, just that bit of strangeness to make it stand out. As with so many fragrances these days its safeness makes it perfect for office wear. But it, in the end, L'Homme makes you feel nostalgic for the eccentric scents of Yves Saint Laurent. The real classics.
