Hi there Posse! Recently I was sent a sample of Pour Un Homme de Caron Millésime 2014. I used it up in two days. Then coincidentally less than a week later my mate Sonya sent me her perfume sale list and she had a bottle of the original there for a bargain. So I grabbed it.
Pour Un Homme de Caron by Ernest Daltroff 1934
Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Top: Bergamot, Lavender, Rosemary, Lemon
Heart: Rose, Rosewood, Sage, Cedarwood
Base: Amber, Moss, Musk, Tonka bean, Vanilla
I am a bit of a Caron fan, the older stuff anyway. There are Nuit de Noel, Narcisse Noir, Bellodgia, Accord 119, Infini and Parfum Sacre bottles around here. The style generally suits me, grand old French perfumery done classically often with clever twists.
Right from the very first spritz Pour Un Homme de Caron smells like lavender candy. The notes list feels utterly irrelevant to me because everything else in the fragrance seems put there to bolster this sweet lavender and the whole mixing feels seamless and elegant.
I can imagine anyone who likes or loves of the utterly unisex and very calming note of lavender will be in raptures.
Through the heart and base lavender is still the major star but the vanilla/amber warmth adds luster and warmth.
What’s even better is that you buy it for a steal at the discounters.
Surrender To Chance has samples starting at $4/2ml
So what is your lavender?
