L’Homme Le Parfum reinvents the woody DNA of its elders
L’Homme Le Parfum by Yves Saint-Laurent is a fragrance that is not diametrically opposed to its predecessors. In fact, he even takes the main breath of the juices that were created before him: a woody and intensely manly scent. However, this time, L’Homme Le Parfum’s masculinity is more nuanced and contrasted. Wood is explored in all its facets, to reveal its most beautiful nuances and the multiple reliefs of its personality… Cedar dominates. It first gives us its dry and powerful scent, a pledge of a strong and very assertive masculinity. Then, little by little, it becomes smoother and more sensual on contact with amber. L’Homme Le Parfum navigates between strength and warmth. This perfume is thought of as “the smell of warm skin under an impeccable costume”.
Moreover, these contrasts also reappear as soon as you see the bottle. Its glass base preserved a certain transparency while its cap is completely opaque. Covered with a gray lacquer, it faces electrifying bluish walls. The L’Homme Le Parfum bottle rests on a round and cylindrical base, while its top is much more raw and hexagonal. Both on the olfactory and visual level, the contrasts seem made to attract each other and form a single whole, in perfect harmony …
