Caron Pour Un Homme de Caron EDT Perfume Review

Caron Pour Un Homme de Caron

I’ve always thought of Caron Pour Un Homme de Caron as a “Bauhaus” Guerlain Jicky – modern with a touch of Mies van der Rohe. It’s something that will never go out of style.

This predominately lavender/vanilla scent is a contrast of cool/warm. Pour Un Homme de Caron reminds me of a simplified Guerlain Jicky (or Shalimar, depends on which Guerlain you’re familiar with) in the opening. It’s a sharp lemon with a sweet “coolness” that reminds me of both dried peppermint leaves and fresh lavender buds. The heart of this is a sweeter, dry lavender (no sharpness) with a balsamic vanilla. It dries down to an excellent vanilla musk.

Give Pour Un Homme de Caron a try if you like lavender perfumes. Or if you like perfumes like Guerlain Jicky, Guerlain Shalimar, Caron Impact Pour Homme, By Kilian A Taste of Heaven and/or Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male. “Homme” may be on the bottle, but this lavender perfume is unisex. It’s one of my favorite “masculines” for feminines.

Longevity and projection are average for an EDT. If you’re used to wearing EDPs, you’ll find projection and longevity below average.

Pour un Homme comes in giant bottles (2.5oz- 25oz!). The 4.2 oz bottle retails for $125 on Amazon.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONLavender and vanilla. Like every timeless aesthetic, this has been copied what feels like a million times – from mainstream 90’s masculine to functional scents in laundry products. This was one of the first lavender perfumes that I’ve ever tried and it’s still my favorite lavender. It’s a “must-try” perfume for any fumehead. I’m not saying you’re going to love it, I’m saying that you need to try it to so you can recognize its many incarnations, imitations and homages.

  1. “Must-try” is right. Before I tried it, I’d have said I didn’t like lavender, or masculines. It’s just wonderful, though.

    1. It “spoiled” all other lavenders for me because all the others aren’t as good!

      And, well at least for now, the price is right with this perfume. It smells wonderful and doesn’t cost a fortune.
