L'Homme by Yves St Laurent- Some people have comfort food, I have a comfort fragrance.
I discovered this fragrance through Mohit from Projekt Perfumery totally by chance. Thank you Mohit for this :)
Before, I used to pass this fragrance by because one of the top notes read "ginger", and I had never conceptualized what ginger would smell like in a fragrance on me.
But now it's a really really different story.
If I'm being honest the first time i sprayed it on my wrist, I liked it, I didn't LOVE it. Then one day, when I came home from work tired, and I had to go out, I freshened up and sprayed this on, and I can tell you instantly I got this "COMFORT" feeling. It felt like someone just giving you a hug. The opening is ever so slightly citrusy, slightly sweet, but really really warm. This is one of my signature fragrances now.
The fragrance itself, to my nose; is one of the best I have ever smelt.The longevity and performance is tricky on this one. There are times when I don't smell it on me anymore, and then suddenly it sneaks up and I get a whiff of it, and its a really pleasant experience. It by no means is a super long lasting fragrance, but I think that's the point of it. Maybe its meant to be more delicate.
Definitely recommend if you are going on a date, like dinner and a movie. Its not a party fragrance, its a more intimate fragrance. I see this as a really good office scent as well if applied in moderation, and also one that can be worn anytime of day.
If you're someone who's into strong super long lasting, hyper masculine kinda fragrances, maybe this isn't for you. If you love subtle fragrances, you must TRY this.
For me, it's not one that will get you loads of compliments, its not one that wants to be noticed or is extroverted, this is one that is meant for only you and your loved one to smell, and for that; its beautiful.
