No dis-respect to ant L'Homme fans, but this one was a real let down for me. Went fragrance shopping in the mall and was reccomended this by a young assistant amongst the fragrance section, so I tried a little. Longevity was fair. But I dont think it was a particularly interesting scent, considering the price ( average at best.) So I politely declined and bought something else which I liked and felt was better value. I think you do have to be careful with some of these bigger brands. Just... (read more)

Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme is a smell which is truly not unpleasant. It is rather smooth. Girls love a man who smells like l'homme. (read more)

This is one of those fragrances that will stay with me. It's perfect in the evening and gives one a subtle and sophisticated scent. With one or two sprays it's very discreet. I got very nice comments as well as looks from the ladies. It somehow makes them curious. Use Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme, but don't exagerate the number of sprays since it may get a bit too sweet.

Girlfriend gave me a tester with Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme on to smell whilst out shopping. I can only guess she was trying to pick out a cologne for me for christmas or something. She didn't tell me what it was.
But I recognised the smell immediately as L'Homme. Its one of those fragrances that people absolutely love or hate and would know it anywhere if they smelt it, like Joop. I happen to hate it. (I hate joop as well.)
She was disappointed that I didn't like it but hey! At least I'm... (read more)

Very feminine scent i think. The top note of flowers just doesn't dry down enough in my opinion - why on earth is there notes of flowers in a mans cologne anyway?
It smells a little like Lacoste Red Style in Play - except the Lacoste is much better because it doesn't have a feminine smell.
I feel that any guy who wears this may get asked frequently questions like:
-Why are you wearing a girls perfume? (read more)

Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme - I'm not really one for modern / contemporary fragrances. I think this smells alright on younger people but its not for me, really. MY thinking on mens fragrances is that its not what the women want - its what you want as a man. The girls don't have to like it - they can get stuffed as far as I'm concerned. And if a girl really does like you enough, she wont care what your fragrance is, she'll accept you for who you are and put up with your preferences. I wear... (read more)

I like this scent. - Women love it and I get many, many nice comments...
Now, I used to wear JOOP (the red one) but find it's almost impossible to wear in the summer without being attacked... wasps seem to love it! - I must admit so do females... When I wear Joop I usually get a pleasant comment from the opposite sex.
My thinking on mens fragrance is that women do not really like the typical old style traditionally worn by men...only the men do. The old fashioned scents, Aramis and... (read more)

Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme - First of all I will say that I am not an YSL fan. It is a heavily woman orientated cosmetic brand and I feel that its range for men is far from good. Therefore I, as a man, would not give much custom to this brand knowing that there is other brands which meets the needs of men better (like Dunhill or Aramis for example.)
However, on a completely un-biased note I feel that this fragrance has a strong, powerful woody aroma which is long lasting. I do give it... (read more)

L'Homme is a great fragrance for men by YSL.
It's a great mixture of a few fresh high notes like citrus, but it has some (more) deeper notes that are long lasting. So gentle but deep. It's not one of those 'older men's heady make your eyes water' fragrances. It's what I would call timeless and classic, but suitable for any age.
I bought the 60ml bottle (Eau de Toilette) at £33. It's not as pricey as you might initially think, as usually you pay around £30 for 30ml or 50ml, but this bottle... (read more)
