This one doesn't hold back, a classic citrus aromatic with big balls, mine is a 2021 formula and is very powerful and long lasting, it actually leaves a sheen on my skin for at least 30 minutes, opens with a bright punchy herbal citrus accord that really projects and announces itself, this stage lasts quite a good while and never really dissipates, it just gets supported with some 80's florals and then the basenotes, there is some leather in the base that offers a good dose of masculinity, obviously my formula is lacking oakmoss which is a shame but don't let that bother you it's still very enjoyable and long lasting, this would suit a classy guy with a few rough edges.

Mutton chop sideburns, open neck shirt showing chest hair and a gold chain, a fake silk polyester shirt, bellbottom jeans, bong water spilled in the back seat of a 1977 Chevrolet Impala, Zeppelin on the 8-track player. The brand Versace had no direct connection to scenes like this, other than the cheesy gold chain thing. But there’s something about Versace L’Homme that brings back vivid images of this too-young-to-be-there tableau, from my teenage days. I get a great nostalgic kick from L’Homme. Oh, and it smells great, too. A very nice head shop leather effect takes over in about ten minutes, becoming more sexy and seductive throughout the next several hours. In terms of bad boy sex appeal, Versace L’Homme makes Creed Aventus smell like White Shoulders. For boys and men out for a you-should-know-better good time out. Even smells nice under a hangover the next morning.

I bought this thinking it was Versace pour Homme, the modern freshy. L'homme takes some getting used to... the opening is a slap in the face that will put hair on your chest, but the scent mellows out in the dry down. The fragrance is both lemony and challenging, which may sound like something of an oxymoron. It has grown on me.

This is what i imagine the Dos Equis,the most interesting man in the world wears.the reformulation L'Homme is nice but the vintage is great.the vintage is one of the most beautiful fragrances in 80's.something you won't find in nowadays releases.never too soft,never too overpowering.this has a soothing and calming effect but can be worn with clothes that don't necessarily scream "beach bum".this is the type of guy who will fight when needed and hold you when you need him most.

It's citrus in the opening.there is an undertone of green soapiness that keeps the fragrance grounded after the citrusy opening.the soapy tone continues,balanced by more herbal as the basil steps forward,and green notes begins to bring the notes downward,preparing for the transition into the heart. cinnamon and leather intertwine to create what becomes the true signature of the fragrance.the cinnamon is mature,the leather mysterious.eventually patchouli and pure sandalwood comes into the picture.it is for a real man,not for little boys.

One of the best bang for your buck designer masculine traditional "cologne" style aromatics around. That was a mouth full. Seriously, this smells like a barbershop! Fresh lemon top notes, that becomes herbal and then woody. It's cheap as can be online, I think I paid $15 for my bottle. It has solid performance, it's very versatile, and it's classy. Doesn't smell expensive, nor cheap, just right in the middle. I'd recommend this for a man in his 40's looking for a signature scent that won't break the bank. I own a bottle simply because I enjoy it, among my other 450+ bottles, this one still brings something to the table.

TLDR: Good (3.25/5). Reviewing the most recent, Eurotalia, version. A retro fragrance that smelled backward looking in 1984 when it was 1st released. Today, being somewhat smoothed and weakened by reformulations, we get a nice, wearable and charming old-school scent that is not quite barbershop and not quite a Dad/Grandad fragrance either. Unique.

Other reviews by possessors of better noses than mine have detailed the complex notes on display here. Much happens between initial spray and dry down with this fragrance. I will observe two things: (1) the current version of this product has lost most of the civet and oakmoss element and somehow has become smoother for doing so--the original formulation, which I had in the mid-80s, was very macho, and as such, when coupled with this fragrance's dated style, would be only for lovers of anachronisms today; & (2) if you like Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur, Guerlain Heritage and/or Chanel Pour Monseur, you will find a fair bit of familiar and likable elements in this fragrance.

Performance and projection here are still pretty good in the current version. This product is good enough and inexpensive enough to be a recommended blind buy for guys who enjoy retro scents that are still quite wearable in 2021.

Recommended.
