Women love a fresh smelling man! Smelling good can definitely score you a lot of points on a first date or with your current lady. Its proven that how you smell is equally as important as how you look. If you're looking for a great scent to begin your fragrance collection, Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme is an excellent choice. L'Homme has been around since 2006 and is considered a modern classic. It is a very "safe" cologne as it smells pleasant, without being too pretentious. L'Homme is definitely warm and pleasant to those around you.
The fragrance itself is fresh and classy. It opens with bergamot and ginger that dries down to a warm tonka and wood scent. The scent is very inoffensive, so it's great for work or other casual settings. Some would consider L'Homme a unisex fragrance; however, in my opinion, its a bit woodsy to be considered feminine. Its a fragrance best suited for summer or spring, but can be worn all year long without being too cloying. My only disappointment is the fragrance's longevity. The scent lasts on my skin about 4 hrs, but may react differently on your skin. Generally, L'Homme sits very close to the skin, so don't expect to stand out while wearing this fragrance.
Penman's Final Remark
Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme is a fresh and classy fragrance great for men of all ages. This is a great fragrance that can be worn in many different settings, especially the workplace. It is definitely not a fragrance I'd wear going out on a late night date or to the club because it is much too subtle.
