Caron Pour un Homme

Hiya Posse Peeps! If you’ve been reading my posts over the years then it will be no surprise how much I love Caron Pour un Homme. No matter how many perfumes I have in the wardrobe it still gets a lot of skin time. Right now my stick deodorant is also one and the same. It is very good and keeps me smelling fresh and delightful all day into tomorrow with no complaints. A few weeks ago popping into City Perfume in Sydney, owned by my mates Thierry and Steven, I got the fever and decided to do a video about my fave. It’s not very informative about the scent but it was a bit of fun. Oh yeah, and I meant to say LAVENDER LOLLIES not vanilla, oops SOZ.

Caron Pour un Homme

Caron Pour un Homme

Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Top: Bergamot, Lavender, Rosemary, Lemon
Heart: Rose, Rosewood, Sage, Cedarwood
Base: Amber, Moss, Musk, Tonka bean, Vanilla

There’s a full review back on the Perfume Posse but my ride is lavender, vanilla, green herbaceousness and moss. A beautiful, unisex fragrance that smells so good in summer or winter and has excellent staying power for a full day of smelling divine. Caron Pour un Homme will set you apart from the crowd in a comfortable, elegant way. Never too much, delightfully understated.

Here’s my video bit.
Ae you a lavender fan?

    So good to see you Portia! I’d love to be in a perfumes shop. I have several Caron fragrances Parfum Sacre, Aimez Moi, Fleure de Rocaille, and Noctures. I haven’t had the pleasure of sniffing Un Homme; however, I’ve read so many good reviews over the years.xoxo

    • Portia says:

      Hey there Kathleen,
      Parfum Sacre is a particular favourite of mine. There’s a 15ml purple shagreen bottle here that gets used so sparingly because I want it to last forever.

    I love Caron Pour un Homme and wear it frequently. Thanks for the video. It makes me want to talk to you in person.

  • Musette says:

    you are SUCH a cutie!!!

  • MzCrz says:

    Portia, you look wonderful! Your enthusiasm is infectious. Your posts always remind me to be in the moment and to enjoy life. <3

    I’m not a lavender fan or a particular fan of Caron, but something about this one I love! Maybe it wears more like a herbaceous cologne on me. What a fun video — oh, how I would like a shop like that here!

    • Portia says:

      Interesting March. To be fair though this is almost unrelated to any other Caron that I’ve ever smelled. It’s a happily freakish aberration within the line.

    I love lavender in general (I wish I could still buy Kiki, or that I could afford Encens et Lavande), but this one is too caramelized for me. It makes me think of bonbons.

  • Dina C. says:

    Nice video! I think lavender and vanilla mixed is a good combo. The vanilla takes that astringent cleaning product edge off of the lavender, softening it right down. Chanel Jersey does something similar iirc. I like Burberry Brit Rhythm Femme as my lavender of choice. It’s a lavender + iris + musk combo. Great for a soothing bedtime spritz. And super affordable.

    That video is so sweet. Loved it. Lavender … not hugely my thing but I recall really liking Pour un Homme. I do grow lavender in the garden but that’s totally different I guess.

    • Portia says:

      Hey Cinnamon,
      Don’t know why but I’ve never had any good luck growing lavender. It’s a shame because it’s one of my favourite fragrant plants.

    I had to pass along my bottle, because it made me sneeze! Sigh, it was so good for the summer.

  • Tom says:

    I love lavender and hate admit I’ve never tried this that I can remember. I have Yatagan and 3eme Homme and Royal Bain and they’re all in rotation. I’ll have to grab some of this.

    Love the video!

    • Portia says:

      TOM! I find that so hard to believe. It’s one of my all time faves and you can still get it for a song at the discounters.

    Portia, I love your video! Your enthusiasm is contagious, but Caron is not a house for me. I really really tried, especially after I heard “Caron was for wives and Guerlain was for mistresses.” 😉 I do have a vintage bottle of Montaigne which I like but very rarely use.

    • Portia says:

      Maya! I never heard that. SO FUNNY!
      Not every house will fit the bill. Thank everything because I have enough trouble with the zillions that do.
