L'Homme opens with a blunt, woody, citrus note along with the touch of Violets and basil...immediately this classic moves into a warm "GLOW" and it reminds one (only reminds) of a "softer" and much luxurious version of a Dior Homme. Ginger used here strangely reminded me of the raw ginger used in Quorom Silver..only this is 100 times more refined, subtle and been kept under the right volume...Ginger holds this frgrance as an Anchor hereon along with the tonka bean that has been treated with so much finesse, that it gives of an mirage of vanilla..but its not, least my guess...the cedar adds its charms with its touch of woodiness which is very light handed and effective. i get the Ginger all the way to the base on my skin, but by no means this turns a green scent...the presense of vetiver is only little i thnk..or maybe the ginger is eclipsing the same...
It's no Dior Homme. but definitly deserves equal adoration. A must have for me. Very comforting/warm scent for winters/summers alike. going to office cant get any better/classier than this. its certianly for someone who doesnt have to try too hard. It's a very upscale, modern scent which is highly sophisticated in its approach. It's YSL,We all know it never fails to excite
